Do you live in an area that has a local affiliate station and if so, is buying all of the neccessary equipment to do what they do, mostly for free, to sell air going to net any sort of income or break even? This is so very important in the business discussion, that I think most people overlook with too little research!
Bradley, could you clarify what you're saying here. I'm not following you.
