  • Clear Channel Gets a New Name

    Most Americans are familiar with the names of their local radio stations but not with the cumbersome name of the company that owns most of them: Clear Channel Media Holdings Inc. Now, after 42 years, the country’s largest radio broadcaster is switching its name to something it hopes will resonate more with listeners and advertisers: iHeartMedia Inc., a nod to the company’s three-year-old digital radio service, iHeartRadio. Though most of Clear Channel’s revenue still comes from advertising on its terrestrial airwaves — iHeartRadio only accounts for 10% of total listening for the company — Clear Channel has been building the...

  • Charlie Sykes Credited With Helping Boost Glenn Grothman to Victory

    Few questioned the role that talk radio played in turning out Republicans to vote for Sheriff Clarke in this month' primary election. But talk radio also played a role in the 6th Congressional District primary. According to Jason Smathers' report in the Fond Du Lac Reporter, 620 WTMJ talk show host and Editor in Chief of RightWisconsin Charlie Sykes may have tipped the scales for Glenn Grothman's narrow victory. "Mark Graul, a GOP operative who runs Arena Strategy Group in Green Bay, said two reasons Leibham narrowly lost to state Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-Campbellsport, were money and talk radio." (SNIP)...

    Some oldies fans get their fix from XM radio stations or internet streaming music like Pandora. But since WJAS (1320 AM) was sold and switched from “nostalgia” programming to talk earlier this month, fans have been searching for a new radio station to hear their favorite music. “It was a shock for them to shift to talk shows from music that a lot of people liked,” said Anne Zuza, 70, of Ross. As another ex-WJAS listener emailed: “Is there any other station that plays the classic hits of the '50s, '60s and '70s?” That depends on your interpretation of “classic...

  • Streaming use drives Disney’s exit from broadcast radio (selling off 23 of 24 stations)

    In what Bloomberg calls a “digital push,” Disney announced that it is closing 23 of its 24 terrestrial stations, laying off nearly 200 people in sales and operations. (See the intra-company memo from GM Phil Guerini below.) Disney is shifting its efforts and resources from terrestrial to the broadly-termed “digital” realm, which in this case means program distribution on SiriusXM and online streaming platforms. The company maintains a Radio Disney mobile app. The strategy shift represents what Disney calls “the habits of the consumers we serve.” Inside Radio reports that only 18% of Disney’s radio audience tune in via AM.FM...

    Way way back, I think it was about 1998, I made a prediction in Radio Ink that talked about how one day all of radio would be digital and online and we would see a time when AM and FM stations were no longer the primary means of distributing our programming. I went so far as to say that some would sell off their properties because they were no longer needed. I got lots of hate mail on that one. Yesterday, Disney, one of the world's most respected media companies, sent a signal to the media and advertising world that...

    Casey Kasem has died. ABC News confirmed that the radio personality died today in a California hospital. He was 82. Born Kemal Amin Kasem in Detroit, the disc jockey began his career in nearby Flint before becoming an announcer on Armed Forces Radio Korea Network in 1952. Upon his return, he went on to work at radio stations in California, Ohio and New York before launching "American Top 40" in 1970. He hosted that show until 1988, and then a revived version from 1998 until 2004, when Ryan Seacrest took over. From 1988 until 1998, Kasem hosted a show called...

    Radio personality Casey Kasem has been taken off life support after a judge ruled Wednesday that daughter Kerri Kasem could start withholding medication, food and fluids. Mr. Kasem, 82, is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, sepsis and dementia, the Detroit Free Press reported. “Transitioning our father’s treatment to comfort-oriented care was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make,” Kerri wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday. “For people who do not understand the natural dying process: Giving food and water to a dying body creates pain and further suffering,” she wrote in a later post. “The body does not...

    President Barack Obama is punting his administration´s outrage over Nigerian terror group Boko Haram´s violence to his wife Michelle, giving her the duty of delivering the White House´s weekly radio address on Saturday. The move is an unusual one but not unprecedented: Laura Bush gave a similar address in 2001 when she was first lady, denouncing the treatment of women in Afghanistan. Mrs. Obama has also joined the president in a few radio addresses, but Saturday will mark her first solo appearance. She will also reportedly include a Mother´s Day message.

On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced “The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014″ (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the...

With a vehicle that’s constantly tethered to the Internet, that balance of power changes. More people can leave radio in favor of their personalized playlists and channels on Pandora, Spotify and other online services, which means that the total dynamic of “drive-time” can and will transform. Sure, many will still listen to local talk or sports radio, but others will choose to listen to stations that they can’t get through terrestrial radio via...

    Struggling retailer RadioShack Corp reported a wider quarterly loss on Tuesday and said it will close up to 1,100 U.S. stores after a huge drop in sales over the holidays, sending the stock down more than 15 percent. Sales at the Fort Worth, Texas-based chain have been in free fall amid executive departures, tough competition and an image problem. Despite its ubiquitous presence in the United States, analysts say it has not done enough to transform itself into a destination for mobile phone shoppers or become hip enough to woo younger shoppers. Its net loss widened to $191.4 million, or...

Savage on Thursday on WMAL in Washington, D.C. claimed the freedom fighters in Ukraine are neo-Nazis and his guest, former conservative Paul Craig Roberts, alleged that American neo-cons are secret Israelis provoking Russia.
