Even though this shouldn't enter in as a legitimate part of the equation, I still wonder what might happen if the resources poured into the "book banditos" were to be redirected to the staffing and training of a fantastic Creative Department....

Any station that can demonstrate ROI for its advertisers "don' need no stinking book."

At that point, a station rep can approach national agencies and say, "So, youse guys want a piece of this, or what?"

We paid for this lousy book for 30 years...finally out of their contract and biz has actually not dropped off a bit. Neilsen really needs to overhaul arbitron from the way it crushes it's numbers which mathematically have never made any sense because their is no "pie" left for any stations beyond the top 4-5 in a market, to the way they display their tired old information. Not to mention the burned out instructors who would come by the station for training. WOW!

The "Arbitrary" ratings protection racket has allocated a zero audience to all KCAA programs for over a decade. The only exception was a brief period when "The Poorman" forced a blip on the ratings screen that raised us up to a nose bleeding/WKRP boasting rank of 60th in the market. KCAA carries Don IMUS, Alex Jones, Ed Schultz, Dave Ramsey and Roseanne but officially we have no listeners which causes brain dead ad agencies to give all their buys to the "you know who" groups who buy the book.
