CBS Radios' own Don and Mike show call CBS Radio out on the law suit...
DCRTV.com reports that Don Geronimo, who co-hosts the afternoon drive show on CBS-owned WJFK-FM, Stern's former DC station, said on the air Tuesday "that the suit has no merit because CBS could have pulled Stern off the air for plugging Sirius, but it didn't."
It is also funny to point out the ratings in Washington & Baltimore markets after Stern left CBS Radio... "The Junkies" have taken over for Stern.. in these two markets.. (I would link up to CBS radio but they might file a suit against us.. )
Also via DCRTV.com .. In morning drive, WJFK-FM (Washington DC) netted a 4.4 share among the age 25-to-54 "money" demo for 8th place in the rolling November-to-January Arbitrend average. That was down only a little bit from Howard Stern's 4.6 share in the fall. But, when you break down the numbers to reflect only the post-Stern radio universe after 1/1, sources tell DCRTV that WJFK-FM's full-day audience is below a 2.0 share. We're told that Stern had a 5.5 in November, a 5.4 in December, and that the Junkies had a 2.3 morning drive share in January. In Baltimore, via WHFS, the news for the Junkies was even worse. In the age 25-to-54 demo, Stern's two last months produced a 5.9 and a 7.6. The Junkies had only a 1.8 morning drive share in January.
FMQB.com is also reporting,... The King Of All Media has come from an unlikely source -- Florida-based attorney and decency crusader Jack Thompson. This morning (3/1), Thompson appeared on Clear Channelâ€™s WFLA-AM in Orlando to voice his support for Stern's side of this dispute. Interestingly, WFLA is one of the stations that Stern was dropped from in February 2004 due to a complaint by Thompson. In a release after his appearance, Thompson addressed three specifics that he called "huge factual and legal problems with CBSâ€™s argument."... Thompson sums up his missive by saying, "CBS used Stern and the 'Sirius issue' to make money, not lose money, and because Stern personally made money in the process as well, the CBS suit looks like exactly what Stern says it is: 'a personal vendetta by CBSâ€™ Les Moonves.'"
