It’s pay to play. He doesn’t provide any marketing of programming or station. Marketing of any type is the choice of the purchaser of the air time. They pay for it.Oldies 84 wrote: ↑Thu Jan 31, 2019 7:55 pmWNZK needs to give Crystal the entire morning show 6-10 time slot, It would be good for Miss Mayo and WNZK, They need to market her show, They could get a small amount of ad revenue. Crystal is a musically talented personality. And Innate you have brought Crystal up before, So we’re on the right track in saying this is a decent program and a talented individual.
Bob Allison has had a portion of that daypart purchased for decades.
You might be confusing nicknames. Bob Allison's on-air persona certainly always was/is, friendly.
