KUOW Terminates Cliff Mass

Cliff Mass, the beloved Northwest weather scientist and blogger, has been informed by KUOW that his segment is discontinued. Unfortunately, this seems to be due to him expressing his views on science education and outreach on air. For public radio, pretty sad.

Cliff Mass:

For me the essence of local public radio is to serve as a focus for the discussion of local issues. You would think there would be room for a scientist-educator, someone interested in talking not only about science, but about the interface between science and how we educate our youth in technical subjects.

His post has ways for you to complain about it.

UPDATE: The Stranger will give Cliff Mass a page next week to say whatever he wants. Excellent move!

What say you?
