The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney

Talk Radio, New Media Seminar


For Talk Radio Longevity, Survival Skills Needed

To survive ten or more years in the brutal business of talk radio, what exactly does it take?

Looking around the room during this year's New Media Seminar in New York City, it was clear that many of the key players have changed over the past decade.

In a shrinking industry, just hanging on to one's position is tougher than ever.

In my latest Inside Radio column, learn what talk radio's movers and shakers are thinking about the medium's future.

Plus, why does one big time talker refuse to attend unless his company provides a private jet?

Meanwhile, coming up here at the Radio Equalizer: how one major host made a great impression in person. Be prepared to possibly cast aside your own view of this longtime talker.

ELSEWHERE: one of Ireland's most controversial former political leaders, former Taoiseach (prime minister) Charlie Haughey, has died. RTE News has the latest.

  • Well, I heard Savage talk about a boat he owns on San Francisco bay and he did have some trouble with people on a commercial flight.

    Then again, Neal Boortz is a trained pilot, but I think he owns a twin engine plane.

    As for me, you won't catch me on an airplane--the height above would drive me insane--not to mention the lack of strong security at airports--I STILL remember 9/11 by the way.
