take a look at this: "All of this has led to rumours that NPR, like a TV network unexpectedly besieged by irate fans of a newly cancelled cult hit, is suddenly reconsidering its decision. Under the rumoured survival scenario, the show wouldn't remain an over-the-air offering but rather become a less-polished Web-only program."
I would be (non morbidly) interested in your situations. What kind of contract do you work under? Don't they have to find you another job at NPR? Do you get unemployment benefits? It might be interesting for the proverbial liberal NPR listeners/members to know the employment conditions for the people who bring them their public broadcasting.

@Elliott Mitchell: I think the writer is wrong about one point. He writes that BPP is the first new show launched by NPR in 10 years. When was Day to Day launched? According to Wikip, in 2003.

I don't understand how a "scaled down / web only" program could have enough revenue to support Alison's private jet, Matt's Jacuzzi, and Dan's bacon budget.

I keep waiting for the day when I come into work and pull up the BPP to see the headline saying NPR has reconsidered their decision due to overwhelming support for the BPP. I hope there is something to this!

Great Show as Always, but I have a request. With this being the final week for BPP any chance you could thrown on a little Andrew W.K.? I know you guys know who he is, people should hear how he went from writing all primarily about partying to being a motivational speaker. You can make it happen!
