The opinions expressed in NorthEast Radio Watch and elsewhere on fybush.com are solely those of the author/webmaster, who no longer works (directly, anyway) for any huge media conglomerates and thus doesn’t really need this disclaimer anymore. (Just to be on the safe side: they’re not the opinions of CBS, Westinghouse, Infinity, Time Warner/Advance-Newhouse Entertainment Partnership, or AOL, not that I ever had the, um, privilege to work for the latter. Nor are they the opinions of the M Street Corp., Critical Mass Media, or of the WXXI Public Broadcasting Council. And they’re not carefully market-researched or dumbed down to the very lowest possible common denominator, so they’re certainly not those of Gannett Corp.)
Actually, we do need to offer this disclaimer: the aforementioned opinions are not necessarily those of the advertisers who sponsor fybush.com, kind-hearted souls that they are.
fybush.com does not collect any personal information from those visiting this site, though we do like to check occasionally to see whether anyone from fcc.gov has stopped by.
Do not read these pages while driving, operating heavy machinery, or attempting to voicetrack three simultaneous shifts on group-owned stations in three separate markets.
An Historical Note: Until October 27, 2004, this page concluded as follows: “The preceding provisions shall be null and void should the Boston Red Sox win the World Series (and hey, this just might be their year!)”
And whaddya know – 2004 was indeed their year. (And 2007, too!) So, “Go Sox” and all that – but we’re keeping the rest of the page intact, anyway…
