Via the Pitch’s Plog:
Jabulani Leffall, the former host of KCUR’s Central Standard program who abruptly resigned on-air January 16, says he’s not in hiding. He also says he won’t discuss his departure from the public radio station.
“My motivations for my actions were neither premeditated nor of malicious intent in leaving KCUR. And officially, I won’t comment on my reasons for leaving or the manner in which I resigned. Further, The General Manager and Program Director and myself made a ‘gentlemen’s’ agreement not to discuss internal matters and I plan to hold up my end of the bargain.”
So Lefall closes out his last Central Standard talk show by quoting an early ’60s protest slogan (later popularized by Gil-Scott Heron.) Lefall then walks away from a locally highly visible media position and refuses to explain himself.
Those are the acts of a special kind of coward.
