Long the area's only National Public Radio member, KBIA has relied on a weekday mix of classical music and news to become one of the most successful public stations in the country.
The show came with no pre-promotion, a decision Spencer says was based on fear that KBIA would mirror his programming.
By Monday morning, KBIA had pulled its 9 o'clock hour of classical music and added the Diane Rehm show.
Why doesn't KBIA pick others of the hundreds of shows available to public radio if it wants to increase its new-stalk content?
KBIA has made overtures to buy the license of KCOU, a small station run by university students.
But in the next breath he says his station has been "bloodied" by KBIA "thugs.
Local newspaper accounts have painted KBIA as a bully, mirroring KOPN's programs to shut the little guy down, a portrait Dunn says is distorted.
