The End should end.

So, 107.9 The End began teasing “The End Says Goodbye” with a countdown clock last week. The obviously – and, come on, only assumption made by those seeing the countdown clock was that The End would go the way of 106.5’s alt format.

But oh no – who think their saying goodbye means they are saying goodbye? Sillies:

The End isn’t going anywhere. We wanted to clarify that the promotion “The End is saying Goodbye.” does NOT mean The End is going off the air. Rather than wait until Tuesday, we want to tell you today that we ARE saying goodbye to commercials after 9:30 AM on Tuesday.
We apologize to anyone who may have misunderstood the promotion.

Morons.  Now they just sound stupid.

But here’s the best part: all of this wondering about what the countdown clock meant with nothing to explain it left local news (TV and print) to add another sentence to their story by discussing the radio station’s role in the death of Jennifer Strange, the 31 year old mother who drank water to win a Wii for her kids.  By the way – that trial starts today.

Coincidence?  The station starts a promo to attract listeners the same day they go to trial?  Someone’s PR firm should be fired immediately.

Best advertisment for Sirius/XM ever, however.
