1. The current setup of station management, sales and studio – big changes are coming.

3. The next breed of endangered jobs at both Clear Channel and Cumulus – and these people think they are now safe.
4. Where Clear Channel and Cumulus are on the same track and one big way they are different.
5. The biggest change that could happen as early as this year is unthinkable, but Bob Pittman and Lew Dickey are thinking about it nonetheless.

My old buddy Jim Carnegie, Publisher of RBR, is mourning the death of his delightful and talented wife and partner, Cathy who died at the age of 59 after a short illness. Jim and I worked together, socialized together and I can tell you that Cathy made all the difference in Jimmy’s life. Everything that is great about radio is that we are a family – sometimes dysfunctional, but none the less joined by our love of what we do and of each other. The outpouring of support we are witnessing during the time of his loss is what we do. My heart aches for Jim.
