Board, WXYC confront problems
By BERNIE RANSBOTTOM
Representatives from both sids of the
WXYC-Media Board conflict met
informally Thursday in an attempt to
establish an atmosphere more congenial to
cooperation between the two groups.
"There's been enough animosity and
enough undercutting." Dave Madison,
WXYC business manager, said after the
meeting with Media Board Chairperson
Patty Turner. "We need to get things out in
the open and get things settled."
The disagreement between- WXYC and
the Media Board is a result of WXYCs
attempt to set up its own governing
corporation outside the control of the board.
The Media Board currently exercises final
control over WXYCs budget and the
selection of its general manager.
Under the plan outlined by WXYCs
present managers. Student Educational
Broadcasting (SED) would assume control
of the station's budget and managerial
operations from the Media Board.
SEB met Thursday for the first time since
it was established in 1975. Upon receiving
majority approval from the original SI B
board a new board of directors, including
several members of the present Media
Board, assumed control of that corporation
at the meeting.
Although SEB now considers itself the

Media Board approval of the move to be a
very remote possibility at its next regular
But when contacted Sunday. Turner said.
"I am no longer adverse to their position,
which is a step in the right direction.
"I'm not antagonistic. I'm not going out
and supporting the split, but I understand
their position and I am waiting until they
present their case Tuesday to make up my
mind." she said.
"I he biggest problem she (Turner) saw
was that we hurt some Icelings." Madison
said, by try ing to establish SLB as an
autonomous organization without first
consulting with the Media Board.
"I thoroughly believe that we went about it
the best way for the station." Madison said.
Mike Hyman. WXYC program director
and SEB's new chairperson, said. "We've
been accused of putting the Media Board in
such a position that if they vote to let us go.
it's a slap in the face to the Media Board."
But there were several reasons for taking
action to break with the Media Board
without first informing the board of the
move. Hyman said.
"We were not in a position at that time to
talk about leaving the Media Board."
Hyman said. "We wanted to be sure of the
legalities. We were afraid it would be shot
down and there would already be a
resolution before CGC to see we never got
"We lelt the situation required quick,
Madison said that Turner "believed we
should have waited 'til the end of the
semester or the spring. We have to go before
the FCC (Federal Communications
Commission) about our license soon. We
need SEB now."
State and federal laws require that the
non-profit KM station be controlled by one
incorporated body responsible for budget,
managerial and editorial decisions.

Then. UNC law student Philip E.

charging that the ordinance was
unconstitutional because it created a special
class of persons - those able to get permits.
The suit says that the ordinance restricts
free public access to streets. Williams asked
the court for a temporary restraining order
to stop police from ordering cars towed. He
also asked for a court ruling on the
constitutionality of the ordinance.
The restraining order was granted Aug.

preliminary injunction was invoked. A trial
