Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Satellite?

For all the hoopla and hype surrounding satellite radio and the criticism concerning corporate consolidation of terrestrial radio, local stations across the U.S. are continuing to plug along just like they always have. “Traditional commercial-radio executives aren’t running scared just yet. And local talk show hosts aren’t particularly interested.” The fact is that, while satellite radio may yet capture the imagination (and dollars) of the broader public, it hasn’t yet. And even if it eventually becomes a widely used service, it’s simply unlikely that terrestrial radio would be seriously threatened.
