Suddenly, The Fact John Gormley Has A Job Makes Sense …

If there’s caller on your talk radio who can put together a coherent thought, one explanation is that the caller is an actor … (Tablet)

Curious, the actor did some snooping and learned that Premiere On Call was a service offered by Premiere Radio Networks, the largest syndication company in the United States and a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, the entertainment and advertising giant. Premiere syndicates some of the more sterling names in radio, including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity. But a great radio show depends as much on great callers as it does on great hosts: Enter Premiere On Call.

The ultimate Astroturf campaign.

  1. That’s it, I’m unionizing immediately. Free commenting is for schmucks. You want this blistering insight, you’ll have to pay me. Everyone knows newspapers have money.

  2. I don’t believe Gormley has ever had “actors” call in – but callers that are “dynamic” are sometimes asked for their contact info so that they can be called at a later date. In other words – if you’re a good caller….they might wanna call YOU sometime when things are slow or boring. Whether they use this to tip the balance of opinion, I am unsure. But if you listen to his show a lot – you do hear MANY of the same voices again and again. Yawn.
