Tuesday: Links with stardom

Story of the day:
Boise State radio details [Idaho Radio News]


For those still curious as to how the whole Peak/KBOI/BSU radio deal went down, Don Day at Idaho Radio News has the details. The report from IRN is vast and impressive, giving insight into virtually every aspect of the dealings. We were particularly interested to hear about the "inappropriate overtures."

BSU president Bob Kustra mentioned several "overtures" on behalf of groups that wanted "this contract very badly." He told the board that no back-channel requests ever came from Peak. But clearly someone at Citadel did something that Kustra thought to be improper.





"It’s particularly distressing that we bent over backwards to be fair, to be objective and to ignore some overtures that I think that were improper," he said.
We imagine those overtures to be Magic 93.1's free Rhianna tickets.



The whole story is a good read, and we would suggest checking it out. Day put in some good work to get those details (200 pages of documents, emails, records, and a dozen Red Bulls), and you can tell from the final product.
