The 40 Most Powerful Issue Is Out

The Radio Ink 40 Most Powerful People in Radio is now out with Clear Channel Communications Chairman/Media & Entertainment Platforms Bob Pittman topping the list at number one, in a remarkable first-year entry -- a first in the history of the Radio Ink Top 40.

"Never before has anyone taken the number one slot on the list in their inaugural year," stated Radio Ink Publisher/CEO B. Eric Rhoads. "But Bob Pittman immediately attracted attention when he joined Clear Channel as chairman of media and entertainment platforms last November. Not only did he immediately become a huge presence at America's largest radio conglomerate, he also took on the role of radio's biggest cheerleader. Pittman brings clout and credibility on Wall Street and with the advertising industry."

Pittman commented "I'm honored to be part of the Top 40 Most Powerful People in Radio, especially with John Hogan, so many of the Clear Channel team and the other industry leaders that I have admired for years. I started my career in radio at age 15. Although I've been in many other businesses, I've never lost my love of radio--it's inspiring and stimulating to be back home."

And What does the "most Powerful" guy is radio do? Fire most of his sales force to ship it all to a call center in India. Does this guy really qualify as a leader in our business? Maybe we are confusing radio with corporate raiding.
