WLW-AM PD Causes a Stir. Blog Pulled.
You don't often hear a Clear Channel executive speak up, but that's exactly what Corporate Program Director Darryl Parks has done, and he's got many people tied up in knots. The topic is the revitalization of the AM band, which, according to Parks, is a joke. Well, to be precise, he says the FCC's plan to fix the AM band is a joke. He also says the radio trades, or to use his word "rags," only print FCC press releases about the topic. And, for good measure, Parks called the gathering of thousands of radio people at the NAB/RAB Radio Show last week a "circle jerk." But mostly, it's his take on AM radio that has our reader up in arms. You can read those comments HERE. We'd link you to Parks' blog where me made his comments, however, since this rag ran the story earlier today his blog has been pulled from the WLW website.
