The Inquirer, which filed for bankruptcy this week, took a shot at KYW 1060-AM in a full page ad in the newspaper Wednesday.
Here’s what it said:
Where news radio gets its news
If you want the best news in the region, read it yourself.
The Inquirer, Daily News, and philly.com have over 420 journalists near and far digging into the things that matter to you. The leading local all-news radio station has a fraction of that.
So where are they getting their news?
There is more news on one page of The Inquirer than news radio can read aloud in an hour. Do you want the first few lines …or the whole story?
And do you want it from a news source where nine Pulitzer Prize winners work or from a place where none do?
So many people already get their news from us. In fact, more people turn to us for news on just one average weekday than listen to the leading radio news station for an entire week.
Let’s face it, you don’t need someone to read The Inquirer or the Daily News to you. And if you really need ancient teletype sound in the background while you read, go to philly.com/teletype. It’ll play clacking in the background while you enjoy the real news sources in the region…The Inquirer, The Daily News, and philly.com.
KYW 1060’s Director of News and Programming, Steve Butler had no comment about the Inquirer’s ad.
