WNRZ COMMUNITY RADIO PETITION
On Easter Sunday, April 21, at 12 noon the entire staff of WNRZ-FM was suddenly fired by the ownership. The community-oriented free-form programming was discontinued in favor of simulcasting the "modern country sound" of WNRS-AM. WNRZ's listeners were neither informed of the decision nor given any reasons for the changes.
As citizens of Washtenaw County, we deplore this loss to our community. WNRZ-FM was developing into a responsive and effective radio station, programming to our community in many unique ways, including live concerts, community events, and programming that was produced by the people of Ann Arbor. But this has all been taken from us without our knowledge or consent.
We demand that present and future owners of WNRZ-FM live up to their responsibilities and restore the community radio programming which is essential to our survival and growth. We listened to community radio on WNRZ and WE NEED IT BACK!
