I'm sure you're right.  What's more, Entercom is over a barrel: Howie 
is the most popular personality on their struggling station. 

I'm not surprised he's been suspended --- I'm astounded by what he says 
about his employer on the air --- but it amounts to little more than a 
slap on the wrist. 

Side question:  When Howie was preparing to leave 'RKO for WTKK, wsn't 
there some concern that he wouldn't be able to continue broadcasting on 
his regional "network"?   I'm not sure where "Entercom entity" ends and 
"intellectual property" begins here.  I would think that if he were to 
leave, he could establish contracts with his former "network" stations 
and set the whole thing up all over again.  Am I wrong?
