    so you dont have to worry about promos for rush or charlie sykes on our airwaves. i would imagine there is a bidding process but i'm not sure how it works. probably who can offer the most money and listeners is what it will boil down to. this is a once in a generation opportunity, after all 620 had been the flagship for 80 years.

    •  they bought into those stations for the sports (1+ / 0-)

      RW radio got serious 25 years ago and those stations that had those sports connections were primo. maybe they calculate that just as listeners but if i was into psyops propaganda then the association would be great too. the ability to put a bucky sticker on the megaphone when selling lies is important.

      they're going to yell about free markets etc, and go with the station that's established....

      the amount those stations pay for fucking bucky, like so many mascots around the country, needs to be outed.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

        i never listened to 620 for the politics, i listened to them for sports, mostly brewers or badgers or packers. with the badgers off thats one less reason to listen to them.

          hate radio programming to draw audiences.  That's where the real poison lies alongside people programming their presets to those channels.

          There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

          local ad $ brought in by those sorts associations. even if the business owner doesn't care for limbaugh or sykes he might still want to be on that station for the sports connection to his business and that might mean some of those adds are being played during the limbaugh show as part of a package, etc.

          the bottom line is those stations and maybe RW radio in general  depend heavily on universities like UW continuing to puke all over their own mission statements.
