The six degrees of Chicago radio seperation

Patrick Kampert of the Chicago Tribune gives you six reasons why morning radio has become so tame (or lame… yeah, you saw that one coming.)

Among the factors include the absence of Howard Stern, the crackdown of lewd material by the FCC (which is one of the reasons Stern left terrestrial radio), and the maturing of the jocks themselves – not to mention the audience.

Then there’s cost-cutting – another reason why don’t see the “morning zoos” around anymore.

Mix all of these together and a you have a recipe for morning radio “jumping the shark.”
