DC Loses A Classical Music Station

Washington DC classical music station WTEA is changing formats, dropping most of its music and airing news and public affairs. “By an overwhelming majority, the board approved a resolution to focus on news and public-affairs programming. A new lineup, with round-the-clock news, analysis and interview programs, will debut Feb. 28. Only the weekly broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera and “Traditions With Mary Cliff,” a folk music program, will remain for music lovers.
