One thing I do need to correct, I never worked for Matt. He doesnít have any employees. But maybe someday, if I dream, a miracle can happen. One can hope. Thank you for correcting my errors and making me a better person. It is obvious from your post that you have attended a fine university and are a well respected member of their graduate program. Your reading comprehension skills are stellar because youíre able to find things that were not said or implied. For you to accuse me of blaming his problems on construction near his tower site is fascinating. He had a windfall of $650,000 on a worthless radio station. I think thatís amazing!
For a while I stopped responding whenever anyone posted something about Matt or his broadcasting empire. I got tired of posting facts from the FCC database, radio station brokers, media links such as the ones I have previously attached, etc. but the other day someone posted a comment and I got excited and decided to once again participate in a message board which solicits opinion. The operators of this message board like to have links to support comments and that is why I have started attaching as many links as possible. Seems like a good system.
I hope the following link will help make amends for my previous posts. This was a truly humanitarian gesture on behalf of Matt. Pledging $3 million of free advertising to those in need is beyond generous. Especially because that means based on the size of his audience he would be donating 300,000,000 :60 second spots. I listened a lot in the following weeks to hear who would jump on this offer. I think I heard one downtown Chicago business run a few spots and that was about it. When you canít give away your advertising, itís not a good sign. But still, a beautiful gesture in broadcasting history.
