Who are the Stars, Dogs and Cash Cows?
Wot about BBC local radio Matt..? Thoughts, while it's still 'local' ?
I suppose Scala Radio could fall into the “dog” category—but it should be a prestige project for Bauer, and they’ve shifted some of its costs away to other networks, particularly Simon Mayo...
Aren't Boom's total hours 5.8 million?
Good to hear that Boom Radio is, er, booming, but I think we need a fifth category for Talk/Times Radio. Even if they never turn a profit, they're still providing marketing and content for their owner's newspaper (and other media) assets. As long as they're Vanity Collateral they'll stay on air, I expect.
