I'm wondering whether they'll drop Seacrest when his contract runs out. Up to now, they've gotten afternoon drive talent (in the form of Seacrest) very inexpensively. When the new schedule starts, the inexpensive price they pay Seacrest will be an extra expense that won't be necessary. They'll have enough jocks to cover all the shifts without paying for Seacrest too, as inexpensive as the show is. The only reason to keep Seacrest is if they feel he's really a draw. Now that Star has gone in a Hot AC direction, I'm not sure he'll be that much of a draw.
Seacrest is on quite a bit of Hot AC markets across the nation especially after Casey Kasem retired last July. A lot of stations added Seacrest's AT40 on the weekend when Casey's AT20 left and added him to their afternoon lineups at that time as well. I just wish Star 94 would bring Rick Dees back on the weekends. He is also on a great deal of Hot AC stations across the country on the weekends with his "Weekly Top 40" countdown show.
