There is some interesting fallout from the Clear Channel Premium Choice initiative that frankly I hadn’t considered. Radio and Records recently removed 17 stations across four formats from its reporting panels due to policy violations regarding inclusion of syndicated networks on spin-based chart panels, as well as the amount of non-local programming a station is allowed to air. Apparently many CC stations have adopted the Premium Choice programming and centrally generated music logs 24/7, essentially making them network stations. This is just the beginning as CC stations continue to monitor their programming and evaluate just how much local content they really need. Could this eventually mean separate reporting panels for Clear Channel Premium Choice formats?
