Mocking what it wants: JACK-FM takes on the strike

Jacklogo010107LA radio station KCBS (a k a JACK-FM) is making the most of the strike.

On-air promos remind striking scribes that material can get stale– and invite them to phone-in their best stuff to the station’s toll-free hotline. The station’s website also features allegedly humorous videos of Jack’s “writers” mounting their own picket line and going on strike for an In-and-Out burger.

No word on what CBS supremo thinks of his station’s strike hype.
