Marc Steiner: Welcome to Hampden!

As is old news now, Marc Steiner was recently fired from WYPR. Hawker usually tries not to get political here, but this was a crap firing--motivated by a leader who doesn't get the concept of local programming and a corporate--rather than a non-profit--mindset. What about what's really best for Baltimore's PUBLIC radio station? Basta.

However, apparently Marc has secured an office in Hampden to begin his pursuit of new projects. His Center for Emerging Media has produced the "Just Words" series on YPR--an amazing series that features just Baltimore folks talking about their lives. What a novel idea--listening to the people!

So, if you see Marc, tell him we're glad he's here. Welcome him to Hampden!
