With a few exceptions like Rush Limbaugh, free “On Demand” archives is the end for syndicated talk radio, and I’m not protecting radio stations from their fate for choosing to be lazy and stop producing local content.
Clark Howard has cut back from 3 hours a day to two, and sounds very much now like an edited call out program. The program is available as a free download or podcast. Nothing in the show is “breaking news” that would be stale tomorrow.
Because there is a delay for the posting of the archive, I’ll retain a few stations that carry the show live, but am dropping all the stations carrying the show later in the day or on the weekend.
