WJFF manager resigns after public controversy

By Dru Sefton

The top station official at WJFF-FM, community radio in Jeffersonville, N.Y., has resigned following a public protest over his management style, reports the local Times Herald-Record. Winston Clark, who lead the station for four years, submitted his resignation Wednesday night at the board of directors’ meeting and leaves the station today.

According to the newspaper, many longtime volunteers and others insisted that programming and personnel decisions were made behind closed doors instead of in consultation with a community advisory board. They contend the advisory board hasn’t had a full meeting in years, as required by CPB, “which has been reviewing the charges and monitoring the WJFF situation,” the report noted.
