well, technically, he isn't off the air... he works for Viacomm, not Clear Channel. Clear Channel just buys his show in some markets. So effectively a non-Clear Channel station could pick him up and start playing him now in any given market where Clear Channel was his old affiliate (like say, ours). But seeing as how they are like 50% of the business, its a pretty huge blow. But like I said, i agree that they have the right to program their stations however they like. I don't like that they own as much of the market as they do, but that's a completely separate issue.

The kicker, though is that he's going to have a hard time picking up other (independent) stations, because technically he is in violation of FCC mandates. And its those mandates that I disagree with... it is a puritanical overreaction to what was in essence a pretty harmless gesture to start with.
