You train Darryl to do whatever it takes to increase RATINGS AND REVENUE and that includes being controversial-that brings in the callers like nothing else-what he said on his blog is a "blah blah blah" to those of us listeners who respect, enjoy Darryl's perspectives and plain talk-not to say we always agree with him-but he never kept any secrets about the first goal of his talk radio hosts-RATINGS AND REVENUE-you train him how to bring it to the top and then fire him for speaking out-Such hypocrites.

I miss Darryl already and feel so badly for him as a professional-it's really more about politics and corporate greed than mere ratings and revenue because, after all, so much revenue is brought to Clear Channel by corporate greed-treating individual spotlight hosts with such disrespect only runs down to us listeners in the form of how little value your loyal listeners are-those of us who promote friends and colleagues to listen to your stations-How silly of me to think you respected Darryl and he was one of us when all he was to you was one of us disrespected listeners who admired him for the controversy he could generate

and then give us Tracy Jones' and Marc Amazon's games every day? What really IS going on?
