Re: Clear Channel expands in New England

Mark Osbourne spoke in one of my classes at NESCom about the radio
business, and talked about how the major communications companies were
taking over the industry and how he hoped his stations wouldn;t have to go
that route. Within days, it was announced he was selling his
stations.....too bad really, although I'm sure financially he had no
choice and made the best decision.....
