Where's Baa Bedwards?

Edwards is leaving NPR!

After they dumped him in April, Edwards had agreed to stay on as "senior correspondent." But now Edwards is leaving to join a new satellite radio network, XM Satellite Radio. Check out the story at NPR:

Sources tell NPR's Rick Karr on condition of anonymity that by early next week, Edwards will be named host of a new morning program. NPR erred in reporting earlier that Edwards' program would involve Public Radio International.

Also, a piece in the Washington Post:
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.


Oh, and I got this stuff from Chicago Public Radio's comments section.
