And why do the affiliates put up with it?” — Judd Silver An unfortunate side-effect of the modern radio model is a singular focus on easy money. Since it takes time to develop a program, let alone a full fo...

See more stories on Insider's business page. Last week, former President Donald Trump took the trouble to express hi...
