Sensitive, are we?

Back in "the old days," you waited for the arrival of American Radio from Jim Duncan, so you could check on the status of your two station cluster (one AM, one FM) against the market and the country. (Many of these are archived online at americanradiohistory.com.)  Revenue, rates and ratings information was all public knowledge.

Today, not so much, especially in Chicago.  Longtime media columnist Robert Feder can no longer post revenue info about Chicago radio stations, something he's done for many years.  Why? Because one manager decided to be thin skinned.

From the article at RoberFeder.com:

"This all came about, I’m told, because one of the Chicago radio market managers objected to my report last year, which correctly noted that his group’s revenues had declined from the previous year."

Guess if you can't stand the heat, you now close down the kitchen.
