: This move had nothing to do with improving the Brew or starting a syndication nation for Connie & Fish. CC had no plans to promote Connie & Fish.
: BUT: Connie & Fish had an offer to do mornings on WMYX. They took that offer to their GM in Madison who reached out to the GM in Milwaukee.
: Obviously CC wanted to protect their ass(ets) so they devised The Brew/Z104 syndication agreement to block the WMYX deal.
: It's the way of the business world.
It's not as far-fetched as you might think. It's pretty well-known that C&F were offered mornings at WLUM before Kramp & Adler, and a WMYX offer isn't completely ridiculous. Given that C&F are the cash cow of Z104, if you can protect them and save the Brew morning show salary, then everybody wins.
