    "5 progressive stations drop; Rush audience down; radio industry suffers BIG revenue, reputation woes"

    "Radio industry convulsing: more Clear Channel layoffs; Cumulus sharpens axe; more Limbaugh damage"

    ""Earth shattering" change in the radio industry in the aftermath of the Rush Limbaugh Effect"

    if over 1/10th of an industry suffers revenue woes, the industry itself is having revenue woes.  when the business model of over 1/10th of an industry goes belly up, it is akin to a convulsion.  and when over 1/10th of an industry is about to go under itself, it is pretty damn earth-shattering.  

    it's probably fair to make the distinction between big radio and others on the reputation point, but that is really picking nits.

      those corporations could take huge hits, and perhaps they'll sell some stations, which will (99% of the time) stay on the air, and the industry will basically stay the same.
      If CC's stock falls, that doesn't affect, say, Saga or Entercom, unless it causes CC to sell stations and they run to buy them.
      The biggest side effect on the smaller corporations is perhaps an alteration of the business model, to some extent, but when they do that, they're reacting to what they think MIGHT happen to their bottom line, as opposed to what HAS.
