Description

The former Clear Channel Twin Cities operation has vastly slimmed down from its heyday, due to massive cost-cutting brought on by the company’s staggering debt loads, but the broadcaster remains the largest operator in local terrestrial radio and has grown its portfolio of stations (now at nine) with new low-power frequencies and acquisitions. Jeff Tyler’s KFAN, K102 and KDWB are perennial powerhouses, but like all radio execs he will have to grapple with the movement of music audiences to the Internet and MP3 players.
