NPR's News and Notes Will End March 20, 2009

A Letter from Farai Chideya to the listeners of News and Notes:

We, the News & Notes staff and crew, love you, our listeners and collaborators. I was just in Miami and met with so many amazing listeners, including some of the artists in the 30 Americans exhibit we featured on air. We got your love in St. Louis, Atlanta, Baltimore, and beyond. And we're still here for you ... for a while.
Massive budget shortages have brought NPR to the space between a rock and a hard place ... that is: cancellation time. Both News & Notes and Day to Day (the two wholly West Coast-based shows) will end production on March 20. We are still dealing with the news, but we are committed to making sure we give you our best, now and as long as we've got.
Peace and joy,

Farai Chideya

A facebook group has been created to save the show. Along with an online petition >>.
