Clear Channel to offer video podcasts

updated 12:05 pm EST, Wed November 30, 2005

Clear Channel vidcast

Clear Channel is planning to of its radio stars, and conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is set to be the first. Fans belonging to the Rush 24/7 club--which costs $7 a month and allows users access to commercial-free podcasts of the show, among other perks--will be able to get a daily 60-second videocast starting next month, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Media companies are racing to get their content to customers in new ways, and video podcasting is currently in the experimental stages as TiVo, Walt Disney, Time Warner, and others proceed to test the waters. Clear Channel hopes that the video podcasts will drive up fan loyalty. If the test-run is successful, it plans on expanding its video podcasts to other programs. [subscription required]

    Rush on my iPod video?

    I'd rather jump naked on a huge pile of thumbtacks
    Or stick my nostrils together with crazy glue
    I'd rather dive into a swimming pool filled with double-edged razor blades
    Than load Rush Limpballs on my iPod.

    Rush's greatest hits pt

    "Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be
    convicted and they ought to be sent up."
    -- Rush Limbaugh. October 5, 1995

    "What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use, too many whites are getting away with drug sales, too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too."

    Rush is only a symptom

    Clear Channel is the problem. The only company I've seen in my life singlehandedly kill commercial radio. b******* have borg'd every decent radio station in the country and homogenized it to their corporate image of entertainment. I'm glad the iPod came out when it did, I listen to mine at work every day in shuffle mode and only articles like this remind me of the travesty that CC is.
