Is This Billboard Promoting News Radio or the Internet?
This billboard on La Cienga Boulevard in LA caught my attention. Maybe it was the retro mustache and pipe? There’s certainly nothing new about poking newspapers for printing yesterday’s news — the snarkarati have been doing that since the first intrepid browsers found their way to the Internet 15 years ago. But why, all of a sudden, is a talk radio station picking on newspapers? Hasn’t radio offered live news reports for nearly a century? Are there still people out there that don’t know about live news radio??
