Meet Me in St. Louis
Clear Channel is moving Albany market manager Dennis Lamme to St. Louis where he'll run the media giant's six station group. The company reportedly wasn't happy with revenues in the Gateway City, booting out the ironically named Lee Clear.
Lamme will be remembered for banning coffee and other stain inducing substances from the company's sparkling new digs on Route 7.

Golden Slumbers
In a story better suited to the front page of the business section than the sports section, The TU's Pete Dougherty today rips apart NBC's Olympic rating spin machine. Dougherty, best known for his writing on bowling, doesn't take the time to get into what all this means, or what the local numbers may look like ---or even the real story, that what we're watching is the Olympic highlight show, not the Olympics. On the other hand, you've got to admit that it's fun poking jabs at NBC.
