There's no real way for iHeart to continue to operate with 850 or so stations. By 2019 some of the smaller and medium market stations will glut the market and find even fewer buyers than the few that have financing now.

Good riddance. They took the company from $8 a share in 2014 to 68 cents as of today.

Already did.  :)

For background:  when it comes to AM news/talk format, my market has a Clear Channel owned blow torch and a locally-owned independent station.   We don't have a Cumulus station, but the local station has always carried some Cumulus content, as well as Hannity (which they lost to Clear Channel recently).  My thinking was that IF Art's announcement is that he's returning to broadcast radio, and IF Cumulus is the syndicator, the locally-owned station would have been approaced by Cumulus about carrying it, and might be lead into spilling some beans.

Here's the email I sent to their VP/GM:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello.  I’m sorry to see that the local Clear Channel affiliate has taken Sean Hannity from you and given you the Dave Ramsey show in his time slot.  As a listener, I’d prefer to support your local station rather than Clear Channel.

My main question to you, since your station carries some Cumulus content such as Mark Levin, will you be picking up the new Cumulus-syndicated  Art Bell show?   If so, do you have any information as to what time slot it will occupy?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the reply I got (emphasis mine):

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At this point we look to keep Mark Levin on and I will check out the Art Bell return.  He was gone for awhile and I think Dave Noorie replaced him.

We were Sad to have Sean leave but that is sometimes what happens to small broadcasters vs the Big Guys of Clear Channel when they own all these shows they syndicate.


Thanks again for being a listener

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make of that what you will.   To me, it doesn't seem like the guy's being disingenuous that he's heard nothing from Cumulus regarding the possibility of syndicating an Art Bell show.   Still, his reference to Dave Noorie made my day.

You can never win with these maladjusted legbeard SJW's. At this rate, comedy will be extinct inside of a decade.

QuoteAccording to a federal lawsuit filed this month, Zorich was the victim of a massive military-style raid and subsequent puppycide. The raid was carried out because police said they needed “to check if her home had electricity and natural gas service.”

QuoteZorich was subsequently taken into custody at the police station. When she was finally let go and allowed to return to her home, she found to be completely trashed. Beds had been overturned, and items that were once on shelves had been thrown to the floor.

Radio and Podcasts / Midnight in the Desert artwork
March 08, 2015, 05:25:30 PM
From Keith:

QuoteSteve could you let the people in Bellgab know if they want to contribute some artwork to Art Bell.com to email it to me instead of just posting posting it on Bellgab.

And I would also need to know that they are the creators of the artwork and not just a mash up of some other people's work which we would not have permission to use.

To be considered for the logo at the top of the page it has to be those dimensions about 950 width by 200 height.

Recommendation ... go to Google images, type "desert night" or something like that, and under "usage rights" hit "labeled for reuse with modification." There's some good stuff in there that won't get anyone in trouble.
