Muzak, Seeking Bankruptcy Protection, Plays On
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
This rough economy is hitting the company that provides the soundtrack for elevators and dentist offices. Our last word in business is Muzak. It's filed for bankruptcy. The company known as the creator of elevator music now makes its money selling ambient music to stores, but Muzak is only filing for Chapter 11, meaning it's reorganizing its finances to deal with a heavy debt load. So those bland instrumental versions of familiar pop songs aren't about to fade away. And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
