Did All Radio CEO's Really Want To Be Morning Jox?

Sounds like it..

Outgoing Jefferson-Pilot Radio President Clarke Brown took his lumps during Wednesday night’s annual John Bayliss Foundation roast in New York as industry buddies teed off on Brown.

Emmis CEO Jeff Smulyan: “All of us wanted a job in radio, but Clarke got a job at Jefferson-Pilot.”

Interep President/Sales Jeff Dashev: "Let’s face it; he’s in the twilight of a mediocre radio career.”

Brown got the last laugh: “When Jeff’s wife said she wanted him to buy her a diamond, he bought the Seattle Mariners.” He then claimed that the youthful-looking Smulyan has benefited from botox and plastic surgery.

As proof, he flashed a “before” picture on the big screen — a photo of Mel Karmazin.
