Fearing More Fines, Emmis Hires Dump Button Lawyers
Radio broadcasting firm Emmis has plans to add at least two paralegals to its army of dump button pushing legal staff. The company is considering adding these new hires to Chicago's WKQX Mancow show and to St. Loius' KPNT for its Howard Stern broadcast. Emmis currently has $28,000 in fines pending due to past Mancow broadcasts. From an economical standpoint, one can't blame the move. On the other hand, radio is going to get a lot more bland and boring in the years to come if this trend continues.
