At 10: 53 AM PT, KNBR, the all-sports SF radio station owned by Cumulus, ran 14 straight minutes of commercials --minus a one-min tease, Knibber went back to programming at 11: 07.
Followed only a few minutes later with more spots.
This, by the station that pays most of its on and off-air staff minimum wage.
This, by the station that made north of $25M dollars last year yet refuses to pay livable wages to its call screeners, producers and various other personnel who have to drive Uber cars as second jobs to afford their "dream jobs."
This, by a station whose 10-1 PM host brags about paying 4 grand for a brake job on his used Bentley and sends interns to get him orange sodas at the canteen. No, the interns weren't tipped.
One such intern muttered about the hallway: "I'm ready to go right now."
