KGO-AM paying for news tips

KGO Radio, which recently switched to all-news from noon to midnight, is opening its checkbook for news tips. “Become a part of the KGO 810 Mobile News Team and you could win $810!” the station’s website says. “Send us breaking news 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and at the end of each month we will pay $810 to the listener who submits the best story.”

KGO is now chasing ambulances. What a hoot.

What a pathetic gimmick.

Wonder how long it will be before they start paying their news sources for information? They could argue that they're "listeners" and therefore eligible for the $810. Not a good trend.
