WORCESTER – On Friday morning, Worcester Magazine Editor Walter Bird, Jr. announced on Unity Radio’s “The EARS of Worcester with Tony Economou & Gary Rosen” show that he would be resigning from his seat on Worcester’s Citizens Advisory Council [CAC].
“With the launching of Worcester Magazine Radio, something had to give,” Bird told ThisWeekinWorcester.com, referring to WoMag’s own one-hour Unity Radio show, the “Worcester Magazine Radio Hour with Walter Bird.”
The show airs Monday thru Friday from 12 PM to 1 PM.
Bird was appointed to the CAC on April 25, 2017 and his term wasn’t set to expire until March 2020. Back in April, Bird’s position on the CAC was questioned at a City Counci
l meeting due to concerns of conflict of interest.
“I wanted to resign before any important votes happened, to be fair to the group,” Bird added.
A scheduled meeting on Thursday night, Dec. 14, didn’t happen because of the lack of a quorum.
