Are there any radio talents in STL ...

... writing any blogs of consequence?

... creating any audio podcasts for regular download and listening? Some years ago, when I was managing the Frank. O. Pinion website, I set up a timed record utility to grab The Playhouse, edit the sponsor out and post it to his website.  FOP his ownself called it off, for reasons I still do not understand.

... producing any video content/commentary?

... using their nominal websites for anything more than occasional promotional updates and promotion? How many air talents in the market actually have a website for themselves?  It's not like it costs anything anymore...

... using Twitter or Facebook on a regular basis to make contact with their listeners?

I mean, is there anyone other than KTRS' JC Corcoran, making any kind of effort at all to use any or all of the easily available New Media advantages to connect in any medium other than broadcast radio?

What the hell is the matter with you all?  RSS may be a thing of the past, but it's still useful, the 'Net lives on and your content is what keeps your name present across the media and into the future.
