    Money is the only motivation at Cumulus, and that's why they sold the station. The station wasn't as important as the money.

    That's not the situation at EMF.

    Compare that to Mary Berner. Compare that to Bob Pittman. No one who ever worked at a non-profit took a vow of poverty. The CEO is running an enterprise valued at over $100 million, and that's what his salary is based on.

    It's no more complicated....

    How harmless is it to reinforce people's slavish adherence to a belief system largely based on variations on folk tales that have arisen in cultures around the world, not just some backwater of the Roman Empire, that demands complete faith in supernatural beings and events? That does nothing but discourage free thought. Look, everyone has the right to believe just about anything, but the special places carved out in the tax codes for organized religion continue, to me, to be unjustifiable.

    Given the size of the enterprise, he is underpaid.

    The NPR stations in NY pay considerably more than that for just one market. There are quite a few NPR and PBS managers at or above that level.

    And EMF is based in a state where at the $500,000 level the incremental tax rate is just under 50% and the cost of living is extraordinarily high.

    Reference the EMF pay against other groups with more than 100 radio stations and you will see that the pay rate is extraordinarily low.

    They use K-love on the air, but can not use the name in any advertising elsewhere within the LA and IE Metro Survey Areas..

    They already have a cluster; Air 1 is on a suburban lesser signal.

    It probably helps that the other station programs in a different language. As I recall, EMF got special permission for what they do.

    They licensed the use of the name from Univision against a significant amount of up-front cash.

    Or maybe they just want positive lyrics rather than the trash on traditional Hot AC or CHR radio.

    Or maybe they are nonbelievers who will be reached.

    Ergo, propaganda.

    How does that differ from rock stations playing songs about sex & drugs & violence?

    The case has actually been tried in court.
