good point hiphop. it is my opinion that 'old' radio will serve as a feeder into the new digital and subscription radio services that are coming both in terms of the talent pool available(though a fair majority seem to be going sans dj) and the style in which they broadcast(top 40, c+w, 'alternative). this is similar to the process undertook by conglomerates consisting of any two media are slowly converging and homogenizing their content(print daily paper and web for instance)

it's funny. i had a discussion with one of my professors this morning and i was telling him about this discussion and my analysis of bell globemedia. he told me of an article he read from the US that expressed admiration for bell globemedia.
the article said an american equivalent of bell would be the same company owning 1. at+t for landline phone use, 2. aol for internet, 3. nbc as one of the major networks in a nation, 4. DirecTV as the biggest DB satellite network, 5. the new york times as one of the nations premier daily newspaper and finally 6. sprint wireless or verizon wireless(i'm not sure which is the biggest but bell mobility is definetely top 2 in wireless communications in canada.
the existence of such a company would be considered unacceptable in the u.s. however that is the stranglehold bell globemedia has grabbed on canada.
