Sounds far-fetched to me.
I am not so sure this is far fetched....the region could provide some pretty powerful specialty programming including College Hoops, Football, Minor League Sports, etc.
Several years ago there was some real momentum for the Reds and Clear Channel partnering where Clear Channel actually would have OWNED THE REDS...thank God that didn't happen, I can hardly stand to listen to Ryan Seacrest as much as he is on now anyway let alone if he was playing third base!
When Mr. C stepped in it put all of that to rest however, with as savvy as they are as a whole I would not count out the very real potential of this rumor, remember the revenue generated on this type of network (24/7/365) would potentially be greater than any amount a network would be willing or able to pay our beloved Reds!
