Fox TV says its panel of judges for the tenth season of American Idol is in place, but is refusing to divulge who it is.  Our sources tell us that the network is still trying to figure out how to handle my petition for joining the show's judges in light of how many of you wrote in to have me be on the panel.  It appears that while most of the network execs had no idea who I am, their research backed up my 41-plus year in the business, and they are worried about a scandal if Mohawk Radio fans ...

The American Idol summer tour is suffering from the same malaise that the TV show has had over the last few years: lost audiences.  While Live Nation, the tour organizer's spokesperson, Liz Morentin declined to give a reason for the cancellation of seven shows, Mohawk Radio sources managed to get a look at the ticket sale reports for the tour, and in the places where the shows were cancelled, American Idol was being outsold by local events at a rate of as much as two to one.  In one venue, le...
