    Radio host Bob Edwards, who drew millions of listeners to National Public Radio for three decades but was demoted earlier this year, is taking his signature voice to a competing radio universe, according to Edwards and executives of Washington-based XM Satellite Radio.

    Starting Oct. 4, Edwards will host his own morning show on a new channel being launched by XM, as the growing subscription radio service makes its move into public-radio programming..Happy New Year..☺

    As I recall NPR sought to update their profile. Remember a conservative appointee oversees the editing decisions for NPR. I was terribly disappointed to lose Bod Edwards who wrote a wonderful tribute to Edward R. Murrow.

    Probably left to fight Israeli's in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank, I would imagine.
