Clearing the Static 1812

On this edition of CTS, we spend most of the hour talking about possible plans by the FCC to crack down even harder on radio pirates. Is this crackdown really necessary? Should certain pirates be left alone because of the kind of programming or service they provide? Or should it be an "all or nothing" situation? Also, the FCC wants to eliminate the requirements that media ownership changes be printed for public view. Is this a good thing? We don't think so! We discuss all of this on CTS 1812.

Clearing the Static 1809

We open this week's show with more developments in the IHeart bankruptcy saga. Could Liberty Media become a partner in IHeart? Could this mean possible cross promotion between IHeart's radio stations and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio? We discuss the possibilities. This leads us to discussing how we feel satellite radio programming has declined so much in recent years.
Later, we talk about a new male oriented Classic Rock/Talk hybrid station launching in San Diego. This leads to a discussion about Entercom's apparent decision to step away from CHR (Top 40) in some markets. Why is this?
That's all coming up on this edition of Clearing the Static.
