The Missing Link...

We have discovered the answer to the question we all have been searching for. Why did CBS Radio choose to replace Howard Stern in their flagship station with David Lee Roth. Experts have been baffled about why such a large radio conglomerate would select a non-radio talent to do the most important time slot for their most profitable stations.

Well, Cold Kiwi has been investigating and has discovered 'The Hidden Link.' We have found that Sumner Redstone was born Sumner Murray Rothstein in Boston in 1923. He changed his name from Sumner Rothstein to Sumner Redstone later in life.

David Lee Roth was born in 1954 in the town of Bloomington, Indiana. His parents Nathan and Sybil changed their names from Rothstien to Roth in 1948. Nathan had two bothers, the well known Manny Roth, is who was an influential New York City nightclub owner and entertainment entrepreneur.

But, the family secret appears to be Nathan's older brother, and David's other uncle, Sumner. Uncle Summy, as David called him growing up, decided he did not want anything to do with the Jew's so he told his family he did not want to be associated with them and created his own, non-Jew history.

Well, Cold Kiwi, has uncovered the real story. David Rothstien and Sumner Rothstein are related. Sumner gave his nephew a nice gift for his Bar Mitzvah, a morning drive time slot. Cold Kiwi is asking for a DNA test to prove they are not related. This is the only way to be sure at this point.

Note - this whole story is not a surprise given the nepotism that is rampant in CBS. With Les Moonves hiring his wife to run the CBS morning show; Joel Hollander hiring his brother Les to run the radio group; and now Sumner hiring his nephew to be the morning drive time talent.

Look, the nepotism is so obvious; Les even used 15MM of the CBS shareholders money to hire away his wife’s morning competition Katie Couric.

I guess ‘The CBS Family’ is more than just a marking pitch.
