Greater Media is a publishing & radio station company with stations in a handful of larger markets (not Chicago, though). Greater Media President & CEO, Peter Smyth, writes a monthly column on the Greater Media website. For radio people, this month's new column is an interesting read! Entitled "Why Doesn't Washington Like Free Radio?," he talks about the strange goings on in Washington, with the only two satellite radio companies being allowed to merge into a monopoly and terrestrial radio being forced to pay many billions of dollars a year to play the same music they have been broadcasting for free since radio was first invented.
Best line: "How in the world did we become the bad guys?"
