Hopefully that Bill Simonson from 1340 is the first to go. He's a first class commercial reader

This is what happens when you allow one company to operate multiple stations in one market. This is only Clear Channel, Citadel hasn't said a peep yet. They will.
I think it would be nice to have FCC return station license's to companies in the community they are operating, not one large corperation.
But, hey this present system did work for them. once.

Who actually listens to FM radio anymore anyway? Clear Channel killed things with their monopoly. Stations play the same 15 songs over and over (B-93 is a good example of that). Aside from that it's nothing but commercials and advertisements. All I listen to now is my satellite radio and CD's, no commercials and I can listen to what I want. My days of listening to FM radio ended a long time ago.

I hope they have a sale on tents soon, as we will all end up living in one. These jobs cuts are in every avenue of the work force,everywhere.

Both stations are terrible. You have to get satellite radio or do your own thing if you want good entertainment. Commercial after commercial and the sos day after day. Good bye .
Exactly right. The best thing about satellite radio (aside from no commercials) is I don't have to worry about being the 9th caller to win something!! Just song after song, doesn't get any better than that.

Too bad those losers Free Beer and Hotwings aren't a part of Clear Channel. I'd love to see those redundant tards go off the air.

Now I just wonder if all the staunch conservative republicans who think entitlement programs should be abolished will collect unemployment.

If you really enjoy music try 88.1 fm wyce. You might be amazed. Listen all the time now. No repeats, no loud mouth blabbering, no politics. Dj's seem friendly and down to earth.
