The media empire strikes back….
Top song on Radio Disney is by a Disney Channel actress under contract to a Disney label.
Among radio broadcasters across the country, Hilary Duff’s sugary pop tune “I Can’t Wait” has fallen completely flat. A single station — in Albuquerque — has played the song just one time, and that was back in September.
There is, however, a glaring exception: the Radio Disney empire. On its 52 stations nationwide, “I Can’t Wait” is ranked No. 1, with Duff getting more airplay than Britney Spears. In Los Angeles, Disney’s KDIS-AM (710) has played the song a whopping 850 times during the last six weeks.
Disney will justify it as a public service based on the fact that it’s keeping Britney off the air.
