What's in a name? After hearing anguish from some quarters over CLEAR CHANNEL's new iHEARTMEDIA name and the loss of "radio" from the company's moniker (which wasn't there anyway since the company became CCM+E), ALL ACCESS VP/News-Talk-Sports Editor PERRY MICHAEL SIMON decided that maybe it's time to let go of the "radio" name.
In his latest "THE LETTER FROM ALL ACCESS NEWS-TALK-SPORTS" column, SIMON, a former major market programmer who tends to "think different" from the conventional wisdom of the industry, plays "Fantasy Radio Business League" and envisions a future in which people making audio entertainment might end up working for a very different kind of corporate structure, one in which stations and programming are uncoupled and content might actually be the king people say it is.
