  •  Man, does the sight of those names (none)
    bring back memories.

    I know all three of the men personally.  David Hillman is nice.  The other two are utter assholes who've run Westwood One into the ground (with help from other assholes).

    I don't know the specifics about Westwood's connection to the O'Reilly show, but I can tell you that Westwood gives out their radio programming in exchange for cash or other forms of compensation.  So this is probably an arrangement it has with Fox.

    •  As far as (none)
      any agreements with radio affiliates go, I think it's straight-ahead barter. Run the show, run their netspots. We carry a ww1 network where I work and that's how it is afaik.
      Whether ww1 has an arrangement with Fox would depend on the particulars of Fox's contract with Billdo, I think.
      When we purchased a radio station from its former owners, we dumped all of the talk programming except  JeffersonPilot's Bob and Sheri. It was JP that tipped me off to the fact that our call letters (I program that station) were still on Billdo's station finder map. It took several emails and a phone call to get them offa dere.

      Things fall apart-the center cannot hold...The best lack all conviction While the worst are full of passionate intensity (-8.50\-7.13)
