Ok, found the info. Before today, Stern was broadcast on 42 radio stations. Clear Channel owned 6 of them. So yeah, that is a serious portion of his demographic. Again, I have no real problem with them doing that if they wanted to. The problem is they did it because they feel they have no other recourse because of the way the FCC is behaving. The other problem is that because Clear Channel owns most of the radio stations (over 1200 of them), its not like he can just be picked up by another station in the markets where he's been dropped

Honestly, I like Stern sometimes and sometimes I don't, but I'm not so much defending him, as I am arguing against the FCC, PTC, AFA and anyone else who would restrict content allowed to be broadcast through legislation. If Clear Channel decides on its own that they are being "family oriented" and don't want "filth like Stern and Bubba" on their programs... that's fine. Its not fine, when the government gives them no choice.
