Are Science Fridays doomed? NPR announced Friday that in an effort to decrease staff by 10 percent, the company is offering buyouts. The scheme aims to eliminate the radio outlet's $6.1 million deficit. The company also announced that Paul Hagga, a current board member, will take over as temporary president and CEO until a permanent candidate is found, starting September 30. Okay, NPR. Just don't take away our Radiolab.
