Hal Boedeker at the Sentinel reported yesterday afternoon that WDSC, Daytona's PBS member station is planning to drop its PBS programming effective July 1, citing financial strain due to Gov. Rick Scott's veto of funding for public broadcasting last month.

In May things were so tight for the station that it told the Daytona Beach News Journal that the entire station – not just the PBS component of its broadcasting – was at risk of going off the air if it couldn't find enough money to cover its operating costs of $1.5 million.
