Leno vs. Fallon

Comcast is itching to get Jay Leno off The Tonight Show so they can have a younger face to compete with ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel.

A no brainer, right?

More like no brains.

It’s right to put young entertainers on as the 80 million Millennials come of age, but they’re missing a big, bad unexpected consequence.

Learn from their coming mistake – don’t let this happen to you.

The Little 225-Watt Translator That Could

Here’s the feel good radio story you thought you’d never hear about.

Clear Channel gets knocked off in a big radio market by a teensie-weensie 225-watt translator.

Emerging as number one persons 18-34 beating no less than a full power heritage station personally programmed by a big John Hogan-appointed programming honcho, which has now simultaneously dropped to #3 persons 18-34 and 25-54.

Imagine THAT on his resume.

Now you had better watch your flank.

Here’s how it happened and how other shrewd operators can pick the pockets of the big boys while they are busy cranking out their sanctimonious bullshit.

  1. Which radio company kicked Clear Channel in the nuts and won in a major city with a lowly 225-watt translator.
  2. Guess how long it took to become #1 – you can’t, you won’t, but they did it.
  3. So this little pimple on Clear Channel’s butt isn’t making money, right?
  4. Why you should protect your brand now – if a competitor gets ahold of this game plan and has a translator available, your dominance can be eviscerated like that!
  5. The only way to defend against another rogue translator that comes after you.

Cox Channel

NO!  NO!  NO!

Say it ain’t so.

Cox Radio is starting to operate from the Cumulus and Clear Channel playbooks.

Not mean. 

Just lean – increasingly lean.

Some people are really worried and here is why.

If you’ve been thinking about subscribing and would like to access this story, let me tell you what you will get.

  1. Once and for all, can we rule out the sale of more Cox Radio markets?
  2. Who knew that Cox thought it had a ready and willing buyer for the recent non-essential markets it sold – and maybe even a buyer to sell the entire company.  Guess who it was and why they are not interested.
  3. Why most present and ex-employees think Cox is a human radio operator, but not all.  Their gripe has some substance.
  4. Cox doesn’t do mass firings, but they are using another tactic to cut costs.  You be the judge.
  5. How long before Cox makes a major move to get out of radio – my best estimate.
