Either way, they knew what they were getting into when they signed them. Why are they now surprised?? It's pay radio and I'm sure that none of their listeners were offended. I am also sure that they brought on a lot of new subs with their "brand of humor".
yeah and they are losing alot of them since the suspension. i believe the number ,while not staggering overall, was close to 20,000 cancels on the day of suspension. probably double that by now if not more.last i heard it was about a 30 minute wait to get a radio canceled. as i said it isn't a major hit to the sub numbers but it is a substantial money lose to a compnay that can nigh afford it at the moment.
also this suspension,if you listen to the corp heads atleast,was not about the content of the show. it was merely because there was a supposed contract having to do with not talking about the incident on air. when they did so on the free fm portion of the show that is when the suspension was levied. either way you look at it censoring of a show that people pay good money to listen to because it isn't supposed to be censored. that's what the free fm show is for.hence the FREE part.
