13. thanks for the detail and perspective relative to the

business end of this. i've talked to people too and it's all a mush. they don't want to mess with it and the republicans know what side is buttered.

basically, it's complicated and there are a lot of variations. they're all in different time zones in those contracts, and the radio parts are probably entwined in the TV parts.

the objective should be to get a public discussion to get the school to pledge not to renew with the same licensing company unless the licensing co looks for apolitical alternatives. however long that takes, advertisers will get the message immediately and it might trigger boycotts.

once the community finds out the radio portion is minor compared with the tv portion of those revenues and donors can be found to make up the difference the lost revenue argument can essentially be eliminated.

the hypocrisy of the mission statement can be held up in from of them

comparable and more appropriate stations can also be found as alternatives. local gop can't seriously argue the school can't make political decision out of this, and as sharedvalues points out above

University does NOT have to go with highest bid

Procurement process can easily take into account factors besides highest bid.

This is certainly true at most private companies and also true for governments.
