Iranian: Radio Zamaneh chief resigns

I got a brief email today from Mehdi Jami that he has resigned as the director of Radio Zamaneh. I still don’t know exactly what happened. But this is sad news. I have great love and respect for Jami as a person and journalist. His fairness, open-mindedness, and understanding of modern journalism made Radio Zamaneh a magnate for some of our best and brightest writers, young and old. It’s difficult to see how the station will survive without him since the environment he created allowed for a lot of freedom and creativity and that’s rarely appreciated among Iranian journalists.
