David Reed, one of two KHSU employees who were left with jobs after a sweeping shakeup at the university radio station yesterday, has resigned.

In a Facebook post, Reed said that he stepped down as of 7:30 a.m. and he had “declined the offer to be KHSU's acting director, an appointment that was made without consulting me.”

His information has been removed from KHSU’s website.

Reed’s decision comes in the wake of Humboldt State University’s decision to eliminate most of the station’s staff and “indefinitely suspend” most of the volunteer-run programing that was the hallmark of KHSU for decades.

“To all of you who supported me and the station in my last 10 years, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you especially to those of you who volunteered to be on the pledge drive last week,” Reed wrote. “We all made great community radio together, with your support. You can be proud of that.”
