R&R Removes Clear Channel Stations From Panels

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?

    Hi There,

    I would like to connect with a radio producer to schedule an on-air interview to discuss my new book, “Saving Private Healthcare.” I was recently on the Jerry Doyle show. You can find that interview on my website http://www.savingprivatehealthcare.com.

    My book contains a complete, free-market healthcare reform plan that will reduce healthcare expenditures by $2 trillion per year. I include 10 major reforms needed to keep healthcare sustainable, 7 federal bills and 9 implementation phases.

    A great read.

    Please let me know! Thanks, Michael
