Local NPR stations starting "Op Ed" series

The three National Public Radio stations on the Cape and islands - WCAI-FM in Woods Hole (90.1), WNAN-FM on Nantucket (91.1) and WZAI-FM in Brewster (94.3), today began running a new feature in their broadcast schedule, an "Op Ed" which will air twice a week.
Today's first on-air column was written by Harwich poet Mary Cronin, who teaches at Cape Cod Community College, on overuse of standardized tests.
Cronin's piece, titled "Positive Effect," was broadcast at 8:30 this morning and will run again at 5:45 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 13.
The second installment in the series is an op-ed in favor of the Cape Wind project from Clean Power Now, read by veteran newsman and CPN member Francis Broadhurst. The piece will air on Friday, Feb. 17 at 8:30 a.m. and Monday, Feb. 20 at 5:45 p.m.
All subsequent op-eds will run on these days and times.
