Matty Being Matty :  Boston radio legend Matt Siegel who celebrated his 35th anniversary as host of KISS 108’s “Matty in the Morning” in January recently sat down with WEEI's Kirk Minihane from "Dennis and Callahan" morning show to record an episode for zany "Enough About Me" podcast. You can listen to Siegel's interview here.

Video Killed The Radio Star...: When asked during a radio interview earlier about his recent comments that CBS will sell/spin-off its owned and operated radio stations, CBS Corporation Chairman, President and CEO Les Moonves told San Diego Sports/Talker and ‘Mighty 1090 AM’ morning host Dan Sileo, “As the world has progressed and as we’ve moved into much more digital and much more streaming, it is a world for us that is keyed on video. Radio is still a wonderful, wonderful business, so our intent is to spin-off radio so it is its own stand alone company, which will fit better than being a big part of conglomerate like ours’ that is keyed more on television. By no means do we think that radio’s not a great business. It’s a slower growth business, but we have 117 radio stations that we think will be a great stand-alone company.” Acknowledging Sileo’s assertion that CBS was actually built on radio from its earliest days, Moonves added, “By no means are we deserting the radio business. But video right now, is where CBS is heading with the CBS Television Network, Showtime and what we are doing digitally. Radio became a different sort of business that really doesn’t fit where we are going. As a stand-alone, high cash, relatively low-growth business it will do really, really well, and it will do better as a stand alone than as part of the other divisions of CBS.” Listen here (around 6:17 mark).
