As a former employee and a radio professional, I’ve been a fan of WLNG for a number of years. The connection it had with the community has been a special one.
Last fall, the station was sold to out-of-towners who have made some changes that have taken a lot of the charm out of the station. While they can do what they want in that regard, it was the recent actions of Bill Evans, the husband of station owner Sandra Foschi, which went too far when he appeared on a New York City radio station.
He went on to discuss the health condition of a longtime station employee on the air, ridiculing them for their age and for the procedure the employee had to go through to recover from an accident. I can only wonder what said employee would think if audio of the segment made it into their hands.
I questioned the stewardship of a valuable community resource like WLNG in the hands of Evans/Foschi. Nice to see I was right. Awful.
