11. I agree that we need to either take back the media or create our own
I'm curious where you heard they were planning on changing Randi's schedule. I'm a consistent listener and I haven't heard anything like that. Today she railed about Democrats not being skilled at using the media that was available, but no mention of a schedule change. Dropping back to a 3 hr slot was something she appreciated and deserves. It is also consistent with industry practices. I would have problems with a schedule change because it conflicts with other shows I listen to and would take her out of east coast drive time and misses west coast drive time. Considering the tools at AAR management (like most corporat entities), I don't doubt that it's possible but most listeners would be up in arms. If AAR management screws things up, I'm sure she'd be the first pick-up on Nova-M and wouldn't compete against Malloy.
Give us a link to your info.
