AP – National Public Radio President and CEO Vivian Schiller is not saying whether she offered to quit or was forced out by the organization’s board of directions.

Schiller told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she resigned after a discussion with the board. She stepped down a day after a conservative activist posted a video showing an NPR executive calling tea party Republicans xenophobic and racist.
