Is comedy the remedy for radio's indecency headaches? Michael O'Shea thinks so, and he showed up at this week's NAB summit on indecency to promote his view of things.
O'Shea is CEO and co-founder of All Comedy Radio, a network based in Hollywood. He brought with him a press release announcing that his network has purchased KCKN, an AM station in Kansas City, from Carter Broadcast Group of Missouri and will use the station to air its 24/7 comedy format.
It named Elliott Threatt as GM, a local entrepreneur who is also part of the new station ownership. ACR will run the station under an LMA pending FCC approval.
O'Shea said All Comedy Radio owns a station in Phoenix and will seek others for purchase. It has some 60 affiliates that use its programming, delivered via satellite and available under barter. Info: www.allcomedyradio.com.
