Maynard is right. The years of radio automation and sounding like automation, ignoring storms when they are ravaging a town, ignoring important city issues and allowing program directors who hate all non-music events to dictate content has caught up with radio. It used to be the FIRST source of information.

This is a no brainer. People (particularly in metro areas, I would guess)don't tune to radio for local information because there isn't any to be had. Too many radio stations are just too busy worrying about "30 minutes of commercial free music", etc. They don't give out any information other than a quick weather forecast if you're lucky. Why would anyone go there for local information?
