Open Source loses funding

This is really terrible. Although I don’t listen to its podcasts as much as I should, I love Open Source Radio, and now it’s lost its funding from WGBH in Boston.

Marty Lucas and I stopped by their studios about a year and half ago to do some filming, and they were really welcoming as they showed us the ins and outs of producing a smart, innovative, and fun radio show that took the open-source ethic of the web to a new level.

The show is a gem. Let’s hope they find a different source of funding. And check out this great piece from MediaShift about the show and ways that radio can collaborate with its audience more deeply and meaningfully via the web.
