Steve Edwards Resigns

This was rather surprising news, via Robert Feder this morning. Steve Edwards, host of the afternoon show on NPR/WBEZ, resigned yesterday.

Steve has been with WBEZ since the late 90s, although he did take a sabbatical once before (for a special fellowship at the University of Michigan). This sounds like more than a sabbatical. This time he's going to work for David Axelrod.

I've met Steve a number of times over the years. We did a symposium together at the Publicity Club of Chicago. I interviewed him for Chicago Radio Spotlight a few years later. Then, when $everance came out, he had me on his show.

Super nice guy. I wish him the best.
