Geronimo Nixes Podcast Over CBS 'Indecency' Policy

DON GERONIMO's plans to podcast a show through CBS RADIO have been derailed by CBS' corporate indecency policy, reports DCRTV.COM, which notes a post at the former "DON AND MIKE SHOW" co-host's blog saying that after he made a handshake deal to do the podcast, CBS sent him its formal "Indecency policy" and a copy of the "Words That Hurt And Harm" pamphlet sent to all on-air employees.
"Only then did I realize that CBS was going to hold an OFF the AIR podcast to the same 'standards' as if it WERE being broadcast over the FCC airwaves," wrote GERONIMO. "The execs at CBS did tell me they didn't do their due diligence correctly. It was only AFTER we had an agreement they 'discovered' the CBS corporate policy and let me know." He noted that he is under contract to CBS ("I'm CBS's bitch") through OCTOBER 2010 but that "I'll get back in when the current contract situation is up. I would do almost anything to get back in. Just not like this."
