PPM

It might be interesting to see what people are finding regarding talk radio in PPM markets. Music stations are jumping to the (not necessarily wise) "shut up and play the music" analysis, but is anything showing up so far that you could call "conventional wisdom" for the PPMs? Not that the sample si...

Olympics

How were the Olympics as a topic for sports radio this time around? I did hear talk about hockey, and the women's hockey drinking thing got some morning show play, but listening to sports radio over the last few weeks, it seemed like business as usual. Not that I'm complaining -- I care more about b...

Organized Callers

Wrote "The Letter" this week on the DNC's organized caller campaign to get people to call in and push the health care plan on talk shows. I'd be interested in how hosts handle that -- do you try to keep those calls off or would you rather let them through and joust with them? Personally, I'd keep th...

Re: South Florida

WFTL 850 is the most powerful NewsTalk station in Fl and is crystal clear from South Miami and Kendall all the way north to the Treasure Coast. (You can even hear it on the west coast of FL!) It is the only one with six hours of local talk with powerhouse Joyce Kaufman starting at noon and Jeff Kat...

Shots Fired At Dobbs House

In light of the story about someone shooting at Lou Dobbs' house, I'm wondering if those of you who do talk that might be perceived as controversial are ever afraid about what might happen. I remember the days when I was at NJ 101.5 and there were death threats and other incidents; we ended up with ...

Re: Booking Interviews

There are several places where guest suggestions are made or traded, some free and some not. Guestbooker.com is one example. Some syndicators and prep services also offer guest booking services (for a fee). For things like celebrity bookings, you'll also want to call the publicity departments of the...

Baseball Playoff Coverage

I'd be curious to see if anyone has any thoughts on the play-by-play for the baseball post-season. It seems unanimous that everyone absolutely hated TBS' coverage, especially the Chip Caray-Ron Darling-Buck Martinez crew, and Fox has the usual Buck-McCarver detractors. So... do you still turn the so...

"Virtual" Trade Show

Think this is a good idea? Will you pay for a "convention" that you don't have to travel to? Is the face-to-face networking you get at a convention worth preserving, or did the economy kill that off once and for all? Here's the story from Net News: [quote ]BEASON BROADCAST PARTNERS’ AVIRTUALEVENT is...
