A quick look at GPB's pitiful proposed radio schedule as they attempt (futilely, I hope) to destroy WRAS
I know this blog is pretty much dead, but here's some graphics I've posted to twitter that some people have liked. I thought, to make them easier to find and link to, I'd dump them here. What this attempts to do is to display how little thought GPB has put into this takeover of WRAS. Their only concern is airing in the Atlanta market to squeeze out a few more pennies in fundraising. Unfortunately, because of Georgia State leasing out the station for just a few dollars a day GPB has no incentive to actually provide a competitive product to WABE.
I'll try to come back later and provide links to people providing more background, such as savewras.com. Until then, a couple numbers and the tables.
- 56% of GPB's proposed schedule is already available in Atlanta.
- 49% of GPB's proposed schedule is an exact mirror of WABE's schedule.
