Fog at Clear Channel

There has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth regarding Reed Mullins’ departure from KTOK, and perhaps a bit less of it regarding the apparent conversion of KTST “The Twister” into an automated jukebox for some dayparts.

Lest you think this was a local phenomenon, however, you might want to check RadioInsight, which has been documenting scores of Clear Channel layoffs in markets major and minor — just within the last week.

    I listen to lots of local radio. I hate to see what has happened to KTOK’s news department. They used to be a reliable news source. The news department is just a skeleton crew compared to what they once were. I’m sure they can survive on their big 3 syndicated talk shows, but Clear Channel’s flavor of local radio is in a sad state.

    I was sorely depressed at the departure of Ken Anderson’s(?) Cream Puff on KOKC’s drive time traffic reports. Now they are reduced to only relaying call-ins. It actually provided me information sufficient to cause diverts to alternate routes on numberous occasions. SW 89th and NW 10th being favorites depending on which part of Spaghetti Junction is backing up. Curse you, you oblivious drivetards forcing your way onto the interstate at SW29th! You obviously have no #*$%*ing clue what a Yield sign means. If there’s a backup on I-44 SW of OKC, it starts *There*.
