48. And the cities surrounding these rural areas?

 

Indianapolis, Charlotte, Memphis, Tallahassee, Mobile, Shreveport, Omaha, Salt Lake City, Boise, Kansas City, Lexington, Dallas Ft Worth, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Bismarck, Pierre, ect, etc, etc,...................................all those cities in all those red states and there wouldn't be enough listeners to draw advertising dollars in all those markets?

Are you saying that all of that huge swathe of people wouldn't even want to listen out of curiousity?

I'm amazed we are conceding all this territory and just dismissing them.

The only real bonafide explanation that has impressed me is #15 by Egalitarian Thug. He said it was mostly a losing proposition in the 80s when it started up, but the big money that started it all had money to burn as they slowly cornered the entire market. Rightwing ideologue billionaire who just gambled it would pay huge dividends for his kind of people in the years hence. It has.
