Though we may be comparing apples and oranges here; NPR is (allegedly)
non-commercial radio that is partially funded by underwriting. G.E.
used to underwrite Marketplace,
maybe still does; and the "we bring good things to life" jingle was
actually worked
into the end theme music.

Air America is commercial radio....

And up in New Hamshire, talk host Deborah "Arnie" Arnesen was let go by WTPL-FM
and she felt it may have been because she "jokingly" referred to
gas-guzzling SUVs as "FUVs"--and auto dealers who bought ads may have
been kind of miffed at that...
