The on-going investigation of KWMU's Patricia Wente and the legal/accoungting team now enters Week 3 and sources say Ms. Wente is remaining defiant and is very confident that she is not going to leave KWMU nor does she expect the investigation from the legal or accounting side to push her out.
While the outcome of the investigation has not been finalized, Patty is expressing verbally in the business community via phone calls and luncheons that the legal/accounting review will not change her style.
Just when we thought the RFT's story might make a difference, she appears to hang on to her job (she's was never placed on administrative leave to begin with) and the status quo remains intact.
OOH! Wente's got gravitas!
However, neither Wente, nor anyone in KWMU management, nor anyone at UMSL has denied anything written in the Riverfront Times.
