mediageek 12-30-05: Commercial Sponsorhip of Clear Channel’s Madison Newsroom

John Anderson of and Free Press’ Media Minutes is kind enough to join me again this week to discuss the recent naming rights that Amcore bank bought for a Madison radio newsroom. John used to be a radio news anchor in Madison, and nearly worked for Clear Channel’s WIBA-AM, the station with the sponsored newsroom. He fills us in on the details of this situation, and we also discuss how Iowa Citizens for Better Local TV are challenging the license of a Sinclair-owned TV station in that state.

Please be advised that the sound quality of this episode is somewhat degraded, due to a problem getting a clean feed of our audio board, complicated by some inclement weather that was occuring during airtime. The problem should be resolved by next week.
