CBS RADIO AAA WXRT/CHICAGO "morning man LIN BREHMER used his FACEBOOK page WEDNESDAY to distance himself from an e-mail his employer sent under his name, writes PHIL ROSENTHAL in THE CHICAGO SUN TIMES. "It asked listeners to lobby Congress against a bill requiring broadcasters to pay additional royalties for songs they air.
"If you have received an e-mail from my place of business concerning a political action and it is allegedly from me, rest assured I did not write the e-mail; I never read the e-mail; and I certainly never endorsed the e-mail before it was sent to over 100,000 listeners," BREHMER wrote on his page. "It's just something they do. Send out e-mails and sign my name to them without my knowledge. I will always be on the side of the musicians."
"CBS RADIO's blast e-mail TUESDAY urged WXRT listeners to "join 93XRT in speaking out against the Performance Tax.
"Asked about the e-mail and BREHMER's online response, CBS RADIO/CHICAGO SVP/Market Mgr. ROD ZIMMERMAN told THE SUN TIMES he would have to investigate the matter.
