Nicked

From today's Post Star, the final chapter in the Nick Caimano/WAMC underwriting brouhaha:
Warren County supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to rescind a $9,800 underwriting contract with WAMC/Northeast Public Radio. Controversy surrounded the contract after WAMC staff members took issue with Budget Officer Nicholas Caimano for mistakenly characterizing the deal to the Board of Supervisors as "embedded advertising."
It's too bad the station has to lose that $9800; it takes them something like twenty minutes to raise that much during a fund drive.
