Key word in that last sentence: most. No single company controls
all of radio, unless you can prove that Infinity and Clear Channel
are in collusion (sp?) with one another (and I don't doubt that
some on this list would want to try and prove that :-). MLB is
undeniably in control of professional baseball.
As long as the number of large companies owning radio stations
equals more than one, monopoly laws do not apply.
