If anyone other than the esteemed and admired Mr. Atsinger had offered those two justifications for the current state of terra-radio, I have to wonder if those same propositions would not be openly and aggressively challenged.

The other-media technologies didn't happen in a vacuum. Radio had (and has) every opportunity to consider the ramifications of not adjusting its own model-of-communications, and either disregarded the evidence or tragically failed at responding effectively.

Mr. Atsinger's supposition that radio does, in fact have a "story" is to my mind, no more than a wild assertion based, perhaps, on his corporation that, ostensibly, broadcasts to an already captive audience.

I look forward to the "rest of the story" in the hard copy edition of Radio Ink.

Before all you fall at his feet, you might want to ask him how he acquired KENR 1070 in Houston

I've known Ed and his brother-in-law, Stu Epperson, for 34 years. The wise counsel they offer their employees behind the scenes is deeply touching. If all employers related to their employees in the manner of Ed and Stu, I believe we would be a happier nation. Knowing Ed, I'm sure he's embarrassed by the headline, "Ed Atsinger is...Power." In their private lives, these guys do nothing that would indicate, "I have power." They're even gracious and kind to really bad waiters in restaurants.
