If you’ve stuck with me through the endless blather of the first four parts, many thanks and accept my apologies for trying your patience.
I know I said this was going to be a four-parter. But in preparing that last installment I thought of something.
Mike is not an old man. Got a lot of broadcasting left in him. But he’s not going to be on the show forever. There will come a day when The Hardline will have to, shall we say, evolve. It is not too early for Ticket management to consider how that transition will take place.
Maybe my suggestion is unworkable. In fact, it probably is. But the distinctive voice of The Hardline will inevitably change. Cumulus and Ticket management would do well to begin considering how to keep the drivetime goose laying those golden eggs, instead of regular ones.
And to pay Grubes and Danny whatever they ask.
