"The radio industry continues to be controlled by corporate monoliths like Clear Channel, Cumulus Media, CBS and Disney. They have siphoned off fair and livable salaries from hard-working radio people, and illegally given them to big names like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the illegal, sex-driven "shock" jocks. No one deserves to be paid more than a high five-figure salary in radio. Americans need to fight for a radio industry that ends discrimination in the business, especially against people with even minor disabilities, features an open and accountable job market (that means GETTING RID OF "IT'S NOT WHAT YOU KNOW, IT'S WHO YOU KNOW" as employment policy), and ends such destructive ideas as voicetracking and terrestrial digital radio. It's time that we end the stranglehold the corporate entities have on commercial radio, and put radio where it belongs, back in the hands of local owners with a REAL passion for radio."
