Rolling weekend coverage
Hey everyone. I'm breaking from protocol today, building a single blog that will stay up for the entire weekend. Auburn is off, has been off, and won't be back on the field until Monday. I won't have enough information to offer on a daily basis during this mini hiatus, so I'll just add stuff as necessary.
I will be updating frequently, but I will not be building new individual blogs until Monday.
OK. On with the show.
We don't sumbit to the Mobile Red Elephant Club's wishes here. We just strive to be the HOTTEST Auburn blog on the 'net.
My segment on WNSP was pretty short today. Abbreviated, some might say. Sorry about that. I thought about it for a while and, you know, I don't have to do radio. I'm not obligated to do radio. And if I'm going to take the time to do the show, it's going to be somewhere I can talk openly about my opinions. It's clear that WNSP is not that place.
In the same vein, check out this quote from WNSP program director Tim Camp. It appeared in Thursday's editions of the Press-Register: "If the advertisers don't like the show, they are not going to sponsor it. And if we can't get sponsors for a show, it's not going to last very long. I can give you a laundry list of programs that used to be on WNSP that we have dropped because of a lack of advertisers. That is part of the business."
I know many fans loathe newspapers. Many of those reasons are legitimate. Still, we are far less likely, as an industry, to alter our stances based on an advertiser's wishes. We're the most autonomous media entity out there. Them's the facts.
