Terrestrial radio is a thing of the past. The only reason that any of these large corporate radio station survive is because the FCC requires them to maintain their towers giving them the ability to keep radio stations running even if they don't make profits. With creative bookkeeping these companies have managed to stay afloat by not paying their employees any overtime or offering any benefits to 90% of their staff. Recently CBS merged with the entercom and saved millions of dollars in tax benefits all the while paying their staff poverty wages. The future of CBS Radio: bankruptcy!
