A Small-Market Owner Takes Aim At Syndicator, Network Flubs


As president of Stonecom Radio, President/GM Larry Stone oversees a group of four radio stations serving the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee. Before that, he spent 17 years as an Executive Producer and game-day host of “Titans Radio,” the NFL’s Tennessee Titans Radio Network.

The broadcaster came to Tennessee in 1997 to build the new radio station group from the ground up. Now, he’s frustrated and has something to say about the state of the industry.

In short, Stone laments, “We are a crisis point in radio.’

And, his ire is fueled by recent flubs and frustration with syndication partners and networks his stations are aligned with.
