GREAT EASTERN RADIO Talk WTPL/CONCORD, NH morning host ARNIE ARNESEN is exiting at the end of the year, and ARNESEN tells the CONCORD MONITOR that the reason is that her show has been dropped by auto dealer advertisers due to her rants against them.
"I have started calling SUVs FU-vs, because it's not acceptable anymore that 90 percent of people who own them don't need them. For the 10 percent who do need them I say, 'Have them, have a semi-truck,'" ARNESEN said. "Here's the problem: If the bread-and-butter of small radio stations is car businesses, who's going to buy me?"
