Herald: Music fee hikes could scuttle WJIB

When WJIB went up in the ratings (especially after WXKS dumped standards in Oct of '04), many
of us felt good that the "easy as the breeze" station was getting more listeners. But Bob
Bittner found out recently that music licensers wanted to charge more money for stations
with higher ratings. Now he may have to ask listeners to donate, or may have to sell
the station (another option could be libtalk but Bob likes airing his "good music"...)

"Bittner said he gets lots of inquiries from advertisers, but wants nothing to do with them. “There’s lots of money to make” from get-rich-quick schemes and diet pills, he said."
