Is there no new Talk Radio talent with the potential to be syndicated nationally? Or is it a lack of a support structure for talented talkers looking to rise into the pantheon of syndicated radio giants? Paul Bond’s article in today’s (Oct 14th) The Hollywood Reporter digs into the rise of Talk Radio while addressing the scramble for new talk talent to replace the likes of Dr. Laura Schlessinger and possibly Howard Stern at the end of the year. Whether you agree with Bond that stars like Russ Limbaugh are “heading into semi-retirement” or that the well is dry (the article does mention young guns like Adam Carolla, Andrew Breitbart and and Pete Dominick-of Rick Sanchez fame-as the next wave), there’s good food for thought here…yours?
