I saw in the Chicago Tribune yesterday that Paul Harvey was
responsible for ninety percent of the income of ABC Radio Network.

Also the story noted that Citadel was officially dislisted by the NYSE
the day before Harvey died.

Disney thinks enough of the Radio Disney franchise that they bought
1260. On the cable side an operator has no choice but to carry The
Disney Channel at a hefty fee because otherwise they can't carry ESPN
unless they pick up Mickey.
