Beware the Hatchet

From Tom Taylor's NOW column, this ominous note for radio folks...

One NOW reader says “I’ve been told by several people in my [top-25] market that the programmers at iHeart are going through multiple ‘deep dives’ on all talent. There’s an emphasis on the big-name talent making the big bucks, to see if they’re following through on corporate mandates and the programming ‘suggestions’ they’ve been given.” The truth is, every company is examining year-end cost savings, not just iHeart.

Have I mentioned lately that I don't miss the business?
