Snyder Expands Radio Empire
 
Redskins owner Dan Snyder reached a deal yesterday to buy three local AM radio stations from Clear Channel Communications, including the area's leading sports-talk station, WTEM.

This probably means that any of the current radio hosts that have been critical of the Skins in the past (Czaban, B. Mitch, Al Koken) might be on very short leashes, and that's assuming that Snyder keeps them around.

Czaban is pretty popular. Hard to throw away ratings but I guess DS could if so inclined.

The bottom line is Snyder wants to control all the media regarding the team. He just doesn't want anyone blasting him. Otherwise why would he buy the station that rips him the most???

Either DS is gonna let them continue to bash the Skins because he knows they get good ratings, or he's gonna can their asses the second they talk bad about him. We'll see how it plays out. I'm just glad they acquired better stations, there were two cases last year where I had to listen to the games on the radio because they were night games and I had to work, and the signal sucked even though I was listening on 100.3.

He wants a stronger signal and these stations were up for sale. I think Koken stays, Mitchell's been hinting at leaving anyway, and Czaban is a complete ass who, in my opinion, should never be heard from again.

I haven't heard of any talk of B Mitch leaving, wheres that coming from? And if so have you heard where he is planing on going or is he just hanging it up?

Heard from some mutual friends that he's been having some conversations with a radio station in either NY or Philly. I don't remember which off the top of my head.

Czaban just seems like such a dick. He doesn't play that down at all. But his show is pretty entertaining sometimes.

Czaban is entertaining, but something tells me Snyder still hasn't forgotten when Czaban asked Brunell if he would step down and give Campbell the starting QB job in 2006

Can't argue there. He's the king of the douchebags.

Either you love Czaban or hate him, there seems to be no middle ground. I just hope that Andy Pollin, Doc, & Phil Wood are kept on the air.

I hope that Czaban doesn't go anywhere. While he does have a negative opinion at times of the Redskins, a lot of his criticisms are valid. It really gives Snyder the perfect opportunity to get rid of his competition and get a better signal all in one fell swoop. I wouldn't be surprised if you see JFK pick up some of those shows. It would be a good fit considering they have the Junkies and what not. They also have Jim Rome as well. I would hate to see Czaban leave because that would mean that there would be no one to give a descenting voice about the redskins and their management. I can't imagine that Czaban, Koken, and Bmitch will be there too much longer if all this stuff happens.
