This is a post by KFMB’s Tracy Johnson that I am reprinting because it’s important and I want to maximize exposure for it.
When you trade away the goose, Radio, don’t expect Wall Street to reward you with any golden eggs.
This is Tracy’s comment on the subject of Dr. Laura and others being “shared” with Satellite Radio:
This has been driving me crazy for months. Not only these new shows, but we broadcasters have collectively allowed dozens of talk hosts to be broadcast on Satellite Radio. Sean Hannity, Phil Hendrie, the entire ESPN Radio talk lineup…the list goes on and on. And, to make it even worse, the NFL and MLB have sold broadcast rights for the games to satellite…and they require the local rights-holders to provide the feed!!!! And we just let it happen. It’s unbelievable to me. We are our own worst enemy.
