The other aspect that gets brought up with regards to EMF is how they run their stations without local staff as repeaters for their national format. In fact there are a lot of stations that are basically local repeaters for various nationally syndicated talk show or sports networks. I've always said it's nothing new. It's how radio got started in the 20s and 30s with national radio networks. The next phase was national syndication using reel to reel tapes. Then it was satellite delivered formats. So what EMF is doing isn't new or different. But in some cases its replacing locally staffed and programmed stations, and that bothers some people.
