Think not what KERA-TV can do for you

The radio arm of Think remains in place, but budget concerns and the "ever-changing media landscape" have prompted Dallas-based KERA13 to drop the Friday night TV version, according to the stations' "Media Room" website.

KERA also announced Wednesday that it is eliminating the positions of six employees. President and CEO Mary Anne Alhadeff said that the station's planning for the 2012 fiscal year, which begins July 1st, must take into account "continuing uncertain economic times" and a "potential reduction" down the road in federal spending for public broadcasting.

Co-hosted by Krys Boyd and former Dallas Morning News colleague Jerome Weeks, the Think TV show premiered in February 2007 and has aired on three Fridays per month. Its last telecast will be this Friday, April 22nd at 7 p.m., KERA said.

The radio program, with Boyd as sole host, continues on Mondays through Thursdays from noon to 2 p.m. on KERA-FM (90.1). Weeks also will remain at the stations, KERA said.
