The "crossroads" we've been long expecting for morning radio materialized big-time today. Infinity announced its post-Stern national plan (see www.jacobsmedia.com for the release), and Howard had one of his replacements, David Lee Roth, as a guest.
While speaking to Roth, Stern said something very interesting. In discussing his Sirius network and the Infinity regional morning replacement plan, he reminded everyone that a great local morning show that deals with important local issues has an extraordinary opportunity. We've been saying this for years, but even with one foot out the door, our advice is "listen to Howard."
