More Issues Numbers that Don't add up
A couple weeks back the web sight piratechristianradio.org was launched announcing that Todd Wilken and Jeff Schwarz were launching a new independent version of Issues, Etc. (Perhaps with a different name - that hasn't been made clear.) They also published a budget document. There budget for 2008 is under $400k. This includes renting a building, setting up a studio, buying all manner of equipment, salaries for Wilken & Schwarz, web sight and web streaming costs as well actual production costs for six or seven months. Yet, we are told that it cost about $1.2m to produce Issues's Etc. at KFUO. So why does it cost so much more for KFUO to do this? Maybe the issue wasn't Issues, but other mismanagement at KFUO.
