Good article in today's News & Observer in Raleigh, NC, about the G105 show condoning violence against cyclists:

In a nutshell, two big advertisers pulled all of their ads. The station suspended the "Bob and Madison Show" that aired the comments. And the station pledged to support a public awareness campaign about bicycle safety.

Ironically, what seemed to really doom Bob and Madison was the "public service announcement" they ran after the first article in the newspaper. The announcement was kind of an Amos and Andy routine making fun of cyclists that wasn't at all funny.
