Lost Remote’s Richard Warner points out that Clear Channel is talking about putting five minute delays on its talk-format shows.
C’mon, are you serious? I can see 7 or 10 seconds, but 5 *minutes*??? Is Saturday Night Live going to be filmed from 10-11:30 Eastern now so we can make sure we have 1 1/2 hours to dump anything that gets said on the show? Perhaps CC is looking to cut costs and have less board operators on hand for each show, so they can have them monitor more than one show, run over, hit dump, and go back to whatever else they were doing. It’s ingenious. [/sarcasm]
