Marc White's insight:

For decades Jarl went by his radio name Lee Masters. I worked with him in the early days of MTV when the M stood for Music. He is an accomplished media exec who sees things others do not. He brought Howard Stern to E! for instance. Wish him the best in his new gig however i have never been a fan of the culture at NPR.
