There’s no hiding — Nielsen says nearly all media lost ground in the first half. Radio was down during the first
two quarters of the year but numbers indicate it had plenty of company. Overall U.S. advertising spending dropped
15% compared to a year ago. That translates to $10 billion fewer dollars being allocated. Nielsen data shows cable
television was the only medium not producing a revenue decline. Even the internet was down, although by a very modest
1%. There is also some good news for Radio One-owned TV One. Nielsen says African American-targeted television
continues to grow, increasing 14% in the first six months.
Cutbacks and bankruptcies can’t unseat auto as the biggest advertising category. Radio Advertising Bureau stats
state the medium lost half its automotive dollars but Nielsen data shows — that overall — car companies cut spending by
about a third (-31%) in the first half. Yet their $3.7 billion in advertising was by far the largest of any category. Auto dealers
slashed budgets 26%. The second-biggest category was fast food restaurants, whose $2.2 billion total was up 5% over
a year ago. Pharmaceutical ads declined 11%, wireless and motion picture ads were both up less than 2%. Nielsen VP
Annie Touliatos says, ““What’s interesting is that we’re not just seeing a rise in spending for recession-friendly products
like fast food restaurants.” Nielsen’s data shows other growing categories include mobile hardware (+104%), cable TV
(+62%) and websites (+47%). “These advertisers see potential for their products despite our stressed economy and are
leveraging advertising to drive their success,” says Toulous. Citadel’s Farid Suleman leaves a prepackaged bankruptcy on the table. The company failed to pay a $2 million
interest payment due two weeks ago, and Suleman tells the Wall Street Journal he is negotiating with Citadel’s
debtholders about “what the next step should be.” The company has until September 15 to make the payment without
triggering a default. So far this year Citadel has twice restructured the terms of its debt, each time resulting in terms
more difficult to meet. Under the current structure the company faces an even higher set of requirements beginning next
January 15 which it recently warned shareholders “will be difficult to meet.” Suleman tells the Journal, “All options are on
the table.” That includes a pre-packaged Chapter 11 reorganization, which would help wipe away some of the company’s
$2 billion in debt. Other options may include another amendment to their agreement with lenders or selling some assets.
Three months ago Citadel enlisted financial advisory firm Lazard Freres & Co. to help it sort through its financial options.
Firefighters make progress and go on offense atop Mt. Wilson. As the flames marched up the mountain from two
directions toward the 18 FM towers and other infrastructure on the peak, the U.S. Forest Service has changed battle
strategies. Crews set controlled back fires and dug firelines along the 5,700 peak to limit the spread and eat some of the
fuel that the main fire would need to progress. U.S. Forest Service commander Mike Dietrich told reporters last night, “We
have been 150 and 175 firefighters in place. We have a lot of prep work going and pre-treating with retardant and foam.”
Los Angeles County Fire Department crews made it up the five-mile Mt. Wilson Road dodging falling rocks with trucks and
special equipment to coat the transmitter buildings and tower bases with a flame-resistant gel. The massive Martin Mars
air tanker, also known as a Super Scooper, dropped 7,500 gallons of water careful not to hit the towers. But last night the
fire was a half mile from some structures and there were projections it could reach some transmitters overnight. Dietrich
noted, “The fire is moving toward Mt. Wilson from the north and the west.” CBS Radio was taking no chances. CBS late
yesterday flipped “Jack FM” KCBS-FM (93.1), “The Wave” KTWV (94.7) and “K-Earth 101” KRTH (101.1) to the backup

transmitter site of sister KROQ (106.7) in the Verdugo Hills above Pasadena. Market manager Ed Krampf says, “We
didn’t want to lose our ability to turn-off the main facilities.” He tells Inside Radio their facilities have some minor damage,
but remains hopeful firefighters will be able to keep the flames at bay. Clear Channel market manager Greg Ashlock says
their FMs will use Mt. Wilson as long as they can. The good news is they’ve suffered no damage. The weather helped
firefighters increase control of the fire to 22% yesterday although 128,000 acres have burned. While gaining ground,
Dietrich adds, “I don’t believe we’ve totally turned the corner.”
Arbitron suspends calling PPM panelists in L.A.’s evacuation zone. Operators are monitoring the changing
evacuation area and Arbitron has stopped calling respondents in pockets where fires have forced people to leave their
homes. “Calling will resume once the evacuation has been lifted,” says spokeswoman Jessica Benbow. She says panel
relations communications continues as normal in the rest of the Los Angeles market. Arbitron is also monitoring PPM intab rate. So far there’s been no reason to be concerned ratings will be impacted. Benbow says the company’s encoding
operations, panel relations and credited listening departments have been meeting several times a day to monitor any
anomalies and to prepare if action is necessary. Arbitron’s engineers are also working with stations to ensure back-up
signals will be encoded for PPM.
FCC relaxes several rules to help L.A. stations. The federal government has taken its hits for disaster response over
the last several years, but the FCC has been one agency that’s earned high marks. The Media Bureau announced several
proactive procedures to help Los Angeles stations facing wildfire threats remain on the air. The FCC says AM stations
airing emergency information can stick with full daytime power “based on the licensee’s good faith determination that such
operations are necessary to the safety of life or property or where dangerous conditions of a general nature exist.” The
caveat is the station must stay commercial-free and alert the Commission within 48 hours. The agency also relaxes its
rules for stations knocked off the air. Stations will also be able to informally file Special Temporary Authority requests by
email or letter if they need to make on-the-fly changes to their facilities. Provided the FCC is notified within 24 hours,
stations will be allowed to erect temporary antennas without prior authorization.
Clear Channel donates airtime to national emergency preparedness campaign. As Los Angeles residents cope
with wildfires, others around the country know September and October are typically active months for hurricanes. Clear
Channel Radio has produced customized radio spots for all areas of the country to make listeners aware of the need to
plan, prepare and stay informed in the event of emergencies. The regional PSAs highlight potential disasters such as
forest fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, power outages and storms and will air through Thanksgiving.
The Weather Channel’s radio forecast is for change. Sources tell Inside Radio that as of Next January Westwood
One will have The Weather Channel Radio Network syndication rights. TWC has been with Dial Global but the network
dropped out of the bidding when numbers grew larger than it was willing to pay. Insiders say Westwood One’s deal
included a “very substantial” increase in what will be paid to TWC with guaranteed increases over the three-year life of the
contract. The deal is said to include additional inventory to allow TWC parent NBC Universal to promote its larger platform
ranging from the new fall TV season to its cable networks. The Weather Channel Radio Network clears on more than 700
stations. It fills a Westwood One vacancy created in April. That’s when Accu-Weather — after six years with Westwood
One — returned to United Stations Radio Networks. It’s a legacy deal for Westwood One, which has a long history with
NBC — including founder Norm Pattiz’s 1987 $50 million purchase of the NBC Radio Network. But one insider worries, “It
seems like a more emotional than sound business decision.” It has been a year of flux for Westwood One, which recently
completed a financial restructuring and buyout by the private equity firm The Gores Group. The network is working on new
contracts with the NHL, CNN, Dennis Miller and the Grammys. It’s also struck a deal with the NFL that includes sizable
payment guarantees, although one ad seller notes sports sales are lagging this year. www.InsideRadio.com

Alabama group seeks Chapter 11 protection from its lenders. Bluewater Broadcasting’s five Montgomery
stations remain on the air while the company’s financial squeeze is reorganized. Fort Lauderdale-based Landmark
Bank demanded full repayment of its $4.5 million loan to Bluewater last month after an appraiser valued the cluster at
$3.73 million. When Bluewater didn’t comply, Landmark threatened to take it to court so Bluewater sought bankruptcy
protection. Its trouble may have brewing for sometime. The cluster faces $439,000 in unpaid royalties to SESAC, BMI
and ASCAP. Court documents show the company owes more than $10 million to creditors including private equity firm
Alta Communications, which helped Scott McQueen and Rick Peters form the company five years ago with the mission to
consolidate small Southeast markets. Now Bluewater appears to be considering selling some or all of the stations. It has
hired an independent appraiser to assess the value of the cluster, which includes “Bama Country 98.9” WBAM-FM, oldies
“Q-96.1” WQKS-FM, urban “97.9 Jamz” WJWZ and news/talk WACV (1170) — which it simulcasts on WMRK-FM (107.9)
under a local marketing agreement with Alexander Broadcasting Company.
Sean Hannity’s “Freedom Radio” to air on Sirius XM Radio. The Premiere Radio Networks talk host is no stranger to
satellite radio listeners. His show already airs on both Sirius and XM Radio’s conservative talk channels which will turn
programming over to him Labor Day for a one-day broadcast of interviews and artist performances recorded over the last
month during Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts.” The shows raise scholarship money for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship
Fund, which helps children of killed or wounded military personnel. Hannity says, “I’ve come back from each city more
energized and proud of what we’re doing.” Since the concert series began in 2003 Hannity has raised more than $2.5
million. This year’s shows featured Billy Ray Cyrus, The Charlie Daniels Band, Michael W. Smith and Lee Greenwood.
Nasdaq warns SBS over its board of directors composition. Spanish Broadcasting System says it has received a
letter indicating the company’s no longer in compliance with Nasdaq’s rule that a company’s audit committee have at least
three independent directors. SBS fell out of compliance last month when board member Antonio Fernandez voluntarily
resigned. The company has until the next annual shareholders’ meeting or next August to meet Nasdaq guidelines. SBS
says it is in the process of searching for a new candidate to serve on the board and it should easily meet that deadline.
