Tim Conway, Jr., KFI/640 AM: "Radio broke the name Christopher Dorner, carried live interviews from crippled cruise ship Triumph, and bested TV in reporting the asteroid that hit Russia. 'The Today Show' even gave KFI credit for being the first media outlet to talk to the Big Bear resident that was carjacked by Christopher Dorner."
Doug McIntyre, KABC/790 AM: "290 million people a week listen to the radio, the vast majority of which are listening to terrestrial radio. That's a bigger aggregate audience than television and much, much larger than movies. Traditional radio is far from dead. However, it could be so much more if the handcuffs were taken off and radio storytellers were allowed more creative freedom. Just one man's opinion, but I think we've become slaves to format and lost sight of the golden rule of entertainment-- whatever you do, don't be boring!
"I'll leave discussions of mergers and debt service and the financial pressures on ownership groups to folks better informed than I. But to paraphrase Sam Clemons, the reports of radio's demise are greatly exaggerated."
Gary W. Bryan, K-Earth 101: "How can you ask that? When terrestrial radio is listened to by 93-95% of Americans every week! In fact, radio is the medium that has been least affected by other, newer mediums. That's primarily because of in-car listening. Certainly satellite radio is far less of a factor than many predicted, and even devices that play MP3s haven't displaced live and local radio entertainment."
