(wium) - The panelists discuss the decision by Los Angeles public television station KCET to drop its affiliation with PBS.

The station had haggled with the network over dues for years. PBS stations in large markets are charged more than those in small markets and KCET management felt their station was being asked to pay too much.

KCET will drop its PBS membership on January 1, 2011.

The panelists question what the station will gain. It will either need to produce its own programming or it will need to buy syndicated programming from elsewhere. Either could prove to be costly.
