NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller Resigns

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller resigned from her post Wednesday morning.

Schiller's resignation comes a day after a video surfaced in which NPR fundraiser Ron Schiller (no relation) was recorded ripping into conservatives and questioning NPR's need for federal funding.

Vivian Schiller quickly condemned Schiller's remarks.

"I recognize the magnitude of this news - and it comes on top of what has been a traumatic period for NPR and the larger public radio community," NPR Board of Directors chairman Dave Edwards said in a statement Wednesday.
