ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX) - What happens in media may seem like smoke and mirrors. KMOX News and our podcast "What the Media?!!?" is 'pulling back the curtain' and offering access to the people who manage the inner workings of media outlets.

The latest podcast to drop in Season 2, Selling Songs in the age of Syncing and Streaming. Megan Lynch and Julie Smith bring veteran Record Producer and Engineer Carl Nappa into the studio to talk about what makes for a great song and why records don't make money anymore, but the rights to a song do.

Other questions "What the Media?!!?" is asking in Season 2: How are news stories chosen? How do broadcasters sell time? Who comes up with ideas for talk shows? Speaking of talk shows, why did KMOX move away from a national talk program over middays when Rush Limbaugh passed away? We tackle that question first with KMOX Brand Manager Steve Moore as we launch Season 2 of the podcast "What the Media?!!?" You can listen at the link below.
