NY Post: D-Day is Tuesday at Clear Channel

The New York Post is reporting that Clear Channel radio is going to take a ginormous axe to its thousands of stations next week. Here in the Springs, CC owns KKLI (106.3), KIBT (96.1), KVUU (99.9), The Jet (I cannot remember what its actual call letters are, 107.9), KCCY (96.9)... am I missing any? It also own a few more in Pueblo that reach parts of the Springs (KPHT, KDZA and, uh, something else).

The local CC stations are already run pretty lean - but in radio, voicetracking and syndicated shows can mean a very lean "lean" indeed. It would be self-defeating at some point, but we'll find out Tuesday how far they'll push it.

mark this of the last gasps of a once great industry has begun..soon , most local radio(as done by the corporations) will wither and die. MAYBE real broadcasters will pick up the pieces and MAYBE they can re-invent radio to move into the next mode. but the heady days of the past are now mostly a memory.the end begins today...
