How about if they were to combine those stations and just add one channel with nothing but all screaming commercials. How many of terrestrial radio's fans would be attracted to that?
Very few. You have to have some content. So fold all Clear Channel talk stations into one, use a format of five minutes of commercials, one minute of someone ranting that Obama is a Muslim foreigner who will turn our country communist if he isn't stopped in 2012, five minutes of commercials, one minute of someone raving that Obama wants to kill your grandparents and open the borders to people who don't look like us and want to take our jobs, five minutes of commercials, one minute of someone raving that the government is out to kill its citizens, and on and on and on. Blockbuster ratings guaranteed.
