Clearing the Static 1815

We open this edition by talking about developments at Global Community Radio. Then it's on to the FCC and the NAB convention. Could the ownership caps for radio soon be loosened? There's a station sale on the NY/PA border to talk about, and, a popular non-commercial Oldies station in Western PA is sticking around. That's all on this edition of CTS.

We open the program by talking about a failed morning show promotional stunt in San Diego which may very well lead to the end of a Hot Talk/Sports radio station there. Also, could The Loop be returning to Chicago on a full power FM? Later, two more radio companies file for bankruptcy. Town Square buys stations in Trenton, NJ. There's a new Variety Hits station on the air in Vermont. We have further developments regarding last week's news of changes in Little Rock. An "alt war" is brewing in Albany. And could there be a CHR battle heating up in Southern Pennsylvania? That's all on this action packed edition of CTS.
