Isn't it Dr. Laura that this station has? Was the last time
I tried to listen. There is a large difference.

But regardless of that, anytime you put a Rush or a Laura on
the air you get a known quantity - you know what it costs in
terms of money and inventory, and you have a pretty good
idea of the audience and the demographics that the show will
get. And minimizing risk is a key management principle.

This is the problem every morning show has - it's tough to
get some momentum going with constant interruptions. Beyond
that, it's also the problem that the morning listener has,
since he or she is jumping in and out of paying attention to
the radio while getting ready to go take on the day :)
