Re: CBS RADIO changes news opening

Agreed. I heard it for the first time earlier this afternoon - it sounds
like someone banged it out on a Casio stuck in "major chord" mode.

And, if that wasn't bad enough, it just goes away. The old one used to
tinkle away under the anchor's intro - but this one just dies. And it
drowns out anyone trying to talk over it.

btw: anyone know if WBBR is running any kind of processing now that
they've switched to all-news? Listening late last week, they sounded kinda
thin - not to mention what must be some awful production behind the scenes
that left Mitch Lebe ad-libbing nonsensically to correct copy. (And this
was during afternoon drive!)
