WUTS article correction and apology

The Purple recently published an article online titled “No license, no publicity: WUTS surrenders FCC license.” This article has been pulled from the Purple’s website, Twitter, and Facebook, and will not appear in print after it was brought to our attention that there are significant inaccuracies in the article. The article also included only one voice and did not properly portray the situation at WUTS. The article did not meet our journalistic standards and was a failure on the part of the Purple’s editorial staff to properly vet and scrutinize an article before it is published. We apologize greatly for any confusion or concern this may have caused. A follow-up article will appear online in the coming days that represents a fuller and more complete understanding regarding WUTS and their FCC license.
