SALISBURY, USA: Lifeline thrown to public radio Delmarva Public Radio

Lynn Adkins, accountant for the Salisbury University Foundation, speaks on behalf of SU president Janet Dudley-Eshbach, proposing for the university to take over Delmarva Public Radio on Thursday afternoon.
SALISBURY — Fans working to preserve the news/talk and classical music formats on Delmarva Public Radio heard what they wanted to hear Thursday — mostly.

Salisbury University would take control of the financially strained public radio broadcaster from the university’s fundraising arm under a proposal outlined by SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach. The Salisbury University Foundation has owned DPR’s license since it first went on the air a quarter-century ago.

Plans call for moving the studios to the east side of campus before Caruthers Hall, DPR’s longtime home, gets torn down this summer to make way for a new university library.

Dudley-Eshbach recommended retaining WSCL’s locally produced classical programming. But SU would eventually seek a partnership with an existing news operator to help run sister station WSDL, a National Public Radio format station, she said in a statement read to the SU foundation’s radio committee.
