Radio Drama

This is not really a surprise.

The company responsible for syndicating big conservative radio names like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity has been using paid actors to call in to their radio shows.

According to a recent report in Tablet Magazine, Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, hired actors to call in as guests.

A website for the Premiere On Call service was taken offline before the report was published, but a cached version of the website is still available.

That’s going to look interesting on an actor’s resume; along with their glossy head-shot, a listing of appearances on Glenn Beck as “Racist Caller #3” right after “Dead Body in Alley” on Law & Order.
