New publication: 'Twin Cities Radio Magazine'

Spreading its text thinly and in large type over 68 pages, the glossy debut issue of Twin Cities Radio Magazine is heavy with ads, and articles that look and read like ads, balancing puff pieces on local radio personalities such as Mary Lucia with celebrity Q&As featuring Carrie Underwood and Brother Ali. There's a news item or two here, but don't expect a critical word about the local airwaves--there's nothing that couldn't have been written by the station owners themselves. Sample sentence: "102.9 Lite FM brings you the Most Music all day every day including commercial free hours."
