Re: Format Change at WBZ?

Am I the only one that thinks making insider references to labor
negotiations on the air is unprofessional?  How does such talk inform or
entertain the listeners?  Is it right to take a subtle jab at the people who
are paying you on their radio station?  It's not like Gary and Gil are
working for minimum wage.  I'm all for broadcasting professionals pushing
for all they can get from ownership, but keep the negotiations off the air.
