There is absolutely non"shift from political talk" going on, as Dickey claims. There is, however, a(ratings) shift from political talk on Cumulus stations like KGO...because Dickey and Cumulus fired the local (high-priced) talent and dumbed down the station with second-tier syndicated talk that local listeners could care less about. That is the problem with owners like Dickey- an obnoxious attitude of entitlement, and no clue how to run major market stations.

The only benefit of streaming that I can conjure up is that it allows other broadcasters around the country to verify how music radio has become a "one-size-fits-all"and a vacuous, vanilla enterprise.

I do agree with Mr. Dickey when he says, ""we don't yet see a business model behind streaming."

Am I to conclude that Mr. Dickey has concluded that there is no financial future for streaming radio due to no current model ?

Or am I to understand that Mr. Dickey recognizes this void in streaming and plans to actually do what he is hired there to do and BUILD and implement the model ?

I hope it's the latter.

I am amazed but thankful that the brains behind the corporate machines such as Mr. Dickey haven't figured out how to make money streaming online because I sure have.

And I solved Mr. Dickey's excuse of "the consumer is shifting to mobile and mobile is good at search and commerce."

The consumer has already shifted to moblie and mobile is great for audio listening in addition to "search and commerce."

With all due respect, Mr. Dickey seems out of touch with internet radio and doesn't see seem to see the potential.
