...so who says petitions don't work??? Hahaa!!!
To quote from their site:
After 23 years on the air here in LA...
here’s what’s going on with the show…
---
We will stay on air Sunday mornings (10AM-1PM commercial FREE)
and broadcast “digitally” on KLSX HD 2 –
and will remain on HD Radio until we return to your local FM dial…
which I’m very confident WILL happen…
Sooner than later…….
---
Again, thanks for ALL your loyal support over the last month
in trying to SAVE BWTB.
I think it's working!
Stay tuned…..
The Fab Four thank you! We <I>think</I> you've saved the show!

The Bottom Line

I'm copying this exactly as I read it at friends.macjournals.com


Steve Irwin's "friends" and their priorities
Nowhere in the United States was Steve "The Crocodile Hunter" Irwin more widely seen than on the Animal Planet channel, a cable/satellite channel provided by Discovery Communications (they of the multiple "Discovery" channels).

Upon Irwin's tragic death Monday in a freakish stingray attack (the fish's large barbed stinger went through Irwin's heart - the poison had nothing to do with it), Discovery Communications president Billy Campbell released a statement.

See if you can guess which sentence does not belong in this statement, much less in the first paragraph where it actually is:
Statement from Billy Campbell,
President, Discovery Networks,
U.S. Discovery Communications, Inc.


Our entire company is deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. Steve was beloved by millions of fans and animal lovers around the world and was one of our planet's most passionate conservationists. He has graced our air since October 1996 and was essential in building Animal Planet into a global brand.

"Wow, what a great marketing asset he was. We'll miss his non-depreciated book value."

Crikey.
