In one of his recent books, in the beginning, he mentioned owning WKIT and
WZON and admitted that there is a small loss in running the stations.
Nothing significant he said, but enoguh to bug him, but he can't do much
about it because he is competing agasint Clear Channel and Cumulus......

I forget the name of the book, but it was a collection of stories and had
a white cover.....I only read the beginning part when someone pointed it
out to me.
