Citadel Cumulus Talking Togetherness - 2/17 - The NY Times reports that radio operator Citadel Broadcasting is in talks to sell itself to a smaller rival, Cumulus Media, for $37-a-share in cash and stock, after months of refusing to consider a deal. Under the terms of the new proposal, Cumulus would pay $30-a-share in cash and $7 in stock for each Citadel share, or about $2.5 billion. Talks between the two companies, which began this week, are ongoing and may still fall apart. One concern of Citadel's management is that a deal would require a significant amount of debt. Citadel, the nation's third-largest radio broadcaster, which owns DC outlets WMAL, WRQX, and WVRX, had previously declined to consider takeover offers by Cumulus last year. The most recent offer, which Cumulus disclosed in December, was valued at $31-a-share, or $2.1 billion.....

"Awake, Alive And Jewish" Ends Radio Run - 2/17 - Longtime DC area radio program "Awake, Alive And Jewish" went off the air earlier this month after 31 years of broadcasting, and Rabbi Shmuel Kaplan, regional director for the Chabad Centers of Maryland, who co-hosted the show with Gary Siegel, blamed changing times. "The world has changed, the media have changed," he tells the Washington Jewish Week. "Radio used to be a prime medium for getting the news, but has been declining for the last 10 or 15 years."
People now primarily depend on the internet for information, he says. The rabbi lives in Baltimore, but works out of Potomac, and wanted to record the show on Sunday from his home, according to producer and former co-host Michael Hoffman. The program last aired on brokered ethnic WUST (1120 AM), which had aired "AAJ" since May, when it moved from WMET (1160 AM), which was purchased by a Catholic religious group. Ratings were not a factor, according to Hoffman, as the organizers of the show, which featured music, interviews, educational features, and banter, purchased radio time and found sponsors to cover the cost.....

He added that, due to the possible large fine and hefty points, he decided to fight the charge in traffic court. While he didn't reveal the exact outcome, he did say that the judge reduced his penalties. More: A DCRTVer checked the court records and found that Kornheiser's $570 fine was reduced to $140.....

NPR Honcho Fights CapHill Cuts - 2/14 - NPR chief Vivian Schiller slams a House Appropriations Committee's proposal to cut federal funding for public broadcasting: "The elimination of federal funding would be a significant blow to nearly 900 public radio stations that serve the needs of more than 38 million Americans with free over-the-air programming they can't find anywhere else. It would diminish stations’ ability to bring high-quality local, national and international news to their communities, as well as local arts, music and cultural programming that other media don’t present. Rural and economically distressed communities could lose access to this programming altogether if their stations go dark." More from Politico.....

CP Editor At Center Of Snyder's Media Circus - 2/10 - Washington City Paper Editor Michael Schaffer pens a piece on last week's filing of a $2 million lawsuit against his freebie tabloid from Redskins owner Dan Snyder. "In its 30-year history, City Paper has never been accused of trafficking in Nazi, Soviet, and medieval moral ugliness - at least not all at once. Until now... As media types, we're accustomed to gawking at other people's media circuses. So it's been a bit strange to be at the center of one," Schaffer writes.

Allbritton To Reorg TBD, 7 To Get Site Back - 2/9 - Allbritton Communications will reorganize its fledgling local news site, TBD.com, by naming WJLA station manager Bill Lord as head of the operation, and restoring the NewsChannel 8 name to the cable TV channel it rebranded as TBD-TV last summer, the Washington Post reports. The reorganization represents a retrenchment, and in some ways, a retreat from the original vision of TBD, which has been closely watched as an experiment in local news coverage online. TBD was envisioned a new multimedia brand, incorporating traditional broadcast TV, cable TV, and the web. Instead, the reorganization disclosed to staff members today will restore the old identities to Allbritton's various media properties. TBD.com will remain, but Allbritton-owned Channel 7/WJLA will get its own website once more. The changes come three months after Jim Brady, who oversaw the creation of TBD, left saying he had differences with top managers. Lost Remote has more.....

MASN Yanks Garceau - 2/9 - The Baltimore Sun confirms what DCRTVers have noticed, that the Peter Angelos-owned Mid-Atlantic Sports Network has pulled its TV simulcast of Scott Garceau's (left) afternoon radio show, which airs on CBS-owned 105.7 The Fan, WJZ-FM. That comes at the same time that Angelos's Orioles end their flagship station relationship with WJZ-FM, in favor of Hearst's WBAL-AM (see yesterday's DCRTV newsblurb). On its website, MASN says that it will be making "significant changes" to its afternoon line-up in the upcoming weeks. The Sun's Dan Connolly reports that a source said that while the timing coincided with the Orioles' switch in flagship stations, the decision to end the simulcast was not related to the deal and had been discussed for months. MASN will still simulcast John Riggins' afternoon radio show, which airs on a digital subchannel of DC's WTOP.....
Arthur Arundel Dies - 2/9 - Updated from yesterday. Arthur "Nick" Arundel died on February 8 at age 83 of pulmonary failure at his home in The Plains VA.

Arundel sold his firm to the Washington Post Company in 2009. More at loudountimes.com and washingtonpost.com.....
Orioles Hop Over To WBAL - 2/8 - Since the end of last season, DCRTV has been running rumblings that the Orioles weren't happy with their flagship of CBS's WJZ-FM, 105.7 The Fan, and might be going back to Hearst's WBAL-AM, 1090. Well, it has happened. The Baltimore baseball team will be hopping to WBAL after four years on WJZ-FM. WBAL has been the Orioles flagship for 19 years, until the team moved to 105.7 in 2007. "We're thrilled to have the Orioles on 1090 AM, where they belong," says WBAL radio's Vice President/General Manager Ed Kiernan. "This is the extension of a terrific tradition. For 41 of their 57 seasons, WBAL radio has been the flagship for the Orioles. With our 50,000-watt signal, we can blanket the east coast with our broadcasts." Under the terms of the agreement, WBAL radio will broadcast 10 spring training games and all 162 regular season games. WBAL radio will launch a new Orioles "On Deck" show, hosted by Brett Hollander, prior to the games. Hollander will also broadcast his nightly sports program live from Florida for two weeks, in each of the three seasons covered by the new contract. In addition, during the off-season, WBAL radio will broadcast a weekly "Hot Stove" program. "The decision, which comes after several months of the organization's shopping its radio rights, is somewhat surprising, considering the rocky parting between the Orioles and WBAL after the 2006 season," writes Dan Connolly at baltimoresun.com. "The prevailing thought was that the Orioles would remain with 105.7 despite their four-year deal expiring after the 2010 season. The two sides did engage in several rounds of negotiations, but they were unable to hammer out a deal." DCRTV has reported that Orioles owner Peter Angelos simply didn't like the management team at CBS Radio in Baltimore - Dave Labrozzi and Bob Philips - and liked the Hearst WBAL team better. WBAL radio is now the hometown flagship for both the Orioles and the Ravens, which also air on Hearst's WIYY-FM, 98 Rock. Also, as DCRTV has reported, Joe Angel and Fred Manfra are expected to return to the Orioles radio booth. More at pressboxonline.com and washingtonexaminer.com.....
McCaslin Upbeat About New DC Talk Radio Net - 2/8 - DCRTV touches base with John McCaslin (right), the host of the old Washington Times morning radio show, "America's Morning News," and he tells us more about the show syndicator's big plans for America's Radio News Network, a DC-based growing schedule of political radio talk and news shows. McCaslin, a former Washington Times columnist, not only hosts "AMN," but has the title of executive vice president of the new TRN network. He tells DCRTV that, while the Washington Times is still a news and content provider for the "AMN" program, which used to be housed at the Times building in northeast DC, the new network has no connection to the DC newspaper. Now being done from studios in Alexandria, "AMN" features co-host Amy Holmes and can be heard on 125 stations, including WTNT, 730 AM, in the DC area, and via its Warrenton relay on 1250 AM. WTNT is also carrying programming from the new ARNN, including the Lori Lundin and Chris Salcedo program from noon to 3 PM. More at americasradionewsnetwork.com.....

Congress Again Says No To CSPAN - 2/5 - Seizing on Republicans' calls for more transparency in the health-care debate, CSPAN in November asked presumptive incoming Speaker John Boehner if it could bring cameras onto the House floor. The response has just come back: Sorry, but no. "I believe the American people - and the dignity and decorum of the United States House of Representatives - are best served by the current system of televised proceedings provided by the House Recording Studio," Boehner wrote to CSPAN Chairman Brian Lamb. CSPAN has been making similar requests since 1994. It seems unlikely to succeed anytime soon. The Washington Post has more.....

Haber Slams Snyder On City Paper Suit - 2/4 - On Thursday, Channel 9/WUSA's top sports anchor Brett Haber (left) sounded off on the controversy surronding the Redskins' owner suing the Washington City Paper over a November article that criticized many of his business and personal dealings: "In the past, Daniel Snyder has been brash, impatient, and even capricious in his management of the Redskins, but that was his prerogative - after all, it's his team. But the lawsuit against the Washington City Paper goes beyond that. It is a classic case of bullying, and a man stepping on the first amendment rights of a legitimate news organization because he doesn't like what they say about him. Those who've reviewed Snyder's case find his claims of slander to be little more than trumped-up charges over a farcically-written opinion piece. This isn't Russia. You don't get to stifle what the media says just because it paints you in a negative light. But even more repugnant is the fact that Snyder has threatened to use his wallet to intimidate the newspaper into backing down." Read the entire commentary at wusa9.com.

Steinberg On Snyder's CP Suit - 2/3 - Dan Steinberg at the DC Sports Bog: "Let me again gently poke my toe into these swirling rapids surrounding Daniel Snyder and the City Paper, since my intense love for transcribing radio interviews about the Redskins just cannot be quenched. One of the main questions my friends have been asking is this: Even if he were aggrieved, why would Snyder be interested in pursuing this matter now, two and a half months after the story in question appeared, when doing so would only bring more attention to the story? This is a question LaVar Arrington asked several times on Wednesday, when Redskins COO David Donovan and PR guy Tony Wyllie appeared on 106.7 The Fan." More at wapo.com.....

Its local renown comes from putting several legendary Washington Redskins in a series of beloved TV spots back when the team was a perennial Super Bowl contender. "Area natives of a certain age can't help but guffaw when recalling the sweet and simple horrendousness of a 1983 Theater Vision commercial starring Joe Jacoby. Dressed in a period-piece casual jock ensemble of dark polyester shorts, white socks and tight yellow T-shirt, Jacoby delivered his lines with all the suaveness you'd expect from a 6-foot-seven, 310-or-so-pound dude who to that point had only taken directions from football coaches".....

Snyder Sues City Paper For $2M - 2/3 - Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder filed suit late Wednesday against the weekly Washington City Paper and its parent company, Atalaya Capital Management, in New York state court, seeking $2 million in general damages plus unspecified punitive damages and court costs. Snyder alleges in the suit that City Paper libeled and defamed him in a series of articles dating to 2009. According to the Washington Post, City Paper, whose articles about Snyder included an unflattering November 19 cover story, released a letter from Snyder's attorneys to Atalaya that suggested the company would be in for an expensive fight if it didn't accede to Snyder's objections, which included the removal of the cover article's author, Dave McKenna. Snyder also owns ESPN 980, WTEM radio. More: City Paper publisher Amy Austin responds at washingtoncitypaper.com.....

You'll recall that Zier helped Redskins owner Dan Snyder start his Red Zebra radio arm - and then up and left before Snyder bought 980. Zier wanted to call it Blue Zebra after his initials, but red was a much more Redskins-friendly color. We're told that Zier may have been interviewing for the operations manager job now that Dennis Glasgow is Portland, Oregon-bound. Stay tuned.....

Snyder Rages At City Paper Over Nov Cover Story - 2/2 - Redskins owner Dan Snyder (right) isn't happy about a Washington City Paper cover story in November entitled "The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide To Dan Snyder," which detailed dozens of Snyder's actions as team owner and businessman, including the controversy surrounding the removal of trees on land adjacent to Snyder's home near the Potomac River and his raising of parking and ticket prices at FedEx Field. The article was accompanied by a clearly doctored photo of Snyder with horns and facial hair. It drew hundreds of comments on City Paper's website, almost all of them praising author Dave McKenna and condemning Snyder. Snyder is so mad that he has threatened legal action against the freebie tabloid and is seeking the dismissal of McKenna. The Washington Post has more.....

Examiner Misses Big Snow Story - 1/27 - Whoops. The Washington Examiner didn't manage to get the big late Wednesday snowfall into its Thursday edition. Editor Stephen Smith tells a local blogger that the freebie tabloid moved up its Wednesday news deadline by two hours in order that many of its staffers could make it home before the bad weather hit - and ultimately causing the paper to miss the big story, which resulted in thousands of area motorists abandoning their vehicles on snow-chocked roads and leaving 500,000 area homes without power.

Rant: TV Weather Hype Hurts Credibility - 1/27 - Ever hear the story about "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." In short, he falsely claimed that a wolf was coming after him so many times that, when one actually did, no one came to his aid. I think local TV and media weather folks should take heed of this story. So far this wintry season, their storm hype didn't match the weather events. They'd predict a huge storm in December, and little happened. And again in early January. But in late January, when they did scream snow again, a lot of people didn't pay attention. They're the ones who got stuck in their cars last night/early this morning in the gridlock from a fast moving storm that dumped up to 10-inches of heavy wet snow in three or four hours. This time, the local weather guys and gals were right on the mark with their storm warnings. But it's clear that they've got a serious credibility problem that needs fixing. Granted, predicting the weather is not an exact science and local weather folks do make honest errors. But local TV news directors and station managers should maybe use a little more caution when hyping bad weather for ratings.
