So in the cae of KLove, you would argue that the audience that likes and supports that format should not have the option to listen to Contemporary Christian music on the radio, despite the fact that the local operators have no interest in doin the format locally.(I have friends who check the website every time they travel to find out where they can get it when they are away).
I would argue that small audiences nationwide are better served by satellite radio, internet streaming and mobilephone apps. Radio that is licensed to serve a certain geographic confine is better off doing things that those technologies can't. Or just turning off the transmitter and turning in the license. Or selling for a buck. If the price is low enough, somebody who can put content on that transmitter will come in. And to return to the original topic, what about those small audiences in places like Ponce, Oklahoma and Dalhart, Texas that want to hear liberal talk radio? Surely they are as entitled to satellators as the K-Love fans.
