A fat disgusting pig of a human who hates music and enjoys destroying great music stations for his own financial gain. Current CEO of Merlin Media and former CEO of Chicago-based Tribune Co. Michaels became public enemy number one in Chicago
in June 2011 after it was announced he had purchased alternative radio station Q101
and planned to turn it into a news/talk station. The station's staff was let go on July 14th and the station became a news station later that month.
"My favorite radio format has always been spoken radio"
"As music moves to the ipod
, it's time for news radio to move to FM"
-both quotes from Randy Michaels, who is one of the most hated men in Chicago
