It was exactly one year ago that, free of a five-year CBS Radio contractual hold, Tom Leykis set out to became a master of the online universe.
Reflecting on his one-year anniversary, the former KLSX afternoon drive king makes no bones about the fact that it has all been very experimental:
We didn’t know if it would last six months when we started. We didn’t know if the stream would be dependable for a large audience. We didn’t know if there would even be a large audience.
And yet, when the first year ended, we had worked about 50 weeks out of 52, the most I’ve worked since 30 years ago in Albany, New York. When I was at Westwood One and CBS Radio, we worked about 45 weeks most years with seven weeks of vacation and holidays.
