You think you've got it tough? Sure you do -- and for good reason. And so do big time talents like CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KIIS-F/LOS ANGELES morning duo RYAN SEACREST and ELLEN K, who, according to an on-air rant last week (7/23), were told by management to "put a sock in it" with all the extra talking, so that they could do better in the PPM ratings by playing more music.
SEACREST commented about already being number one, and discussed with ELLEN "not being here" despite the fact that "I love this radio station ... but I am offended by this stuff. I am sorry but I am pissed."
I love this radio station ... but I am offended by this stuff. I am sorry but I am pissed.
So, RYAN and ELLEN called crosstown CBS Alternative KROQ morning icons KEVIN & BEAN about their issue ... and guess what? Despite being fierce competitors, the four commiserated on the air together -- as KEVIN & BEAN were just told the same thing by their management.
The crux of the bit was if one of the teams got fired they would join the other one ... but KEVIN & BEAN want the added clause of replacing PAULA ABDUL on AMERICAN IDOL.
However, KEVIN & BEAN did get serious that this is a constant issue for them, and RYAN even said "I like doing this but would rather do this for someone who likes me."
