Re: Larry Lujack is dead...

OKAY. Countryboy, so it's obvious you're not a Larry Lujak fan, big deal. You cannot simply write off a broadcasting legend because you think Disco Duck boy was more relevant You're wrong. I just never heard him on the radio, because I didn't grow up in the Midwest. I grew up in New York City. We h...

Re: Am I the Only one who doesn't get Bobby Bones???

The country audience is the most loyal in the history of radio, and it is insulting that radio executives have the audacity to force this poorly programmed garbage on their listeners. The problem with this is you're equating local radio DJs with national recording stars, and listeners don't do that...

Re: Am I the Only one who doesn't get Bobby Bones???

Even Crap Channel wouldn't have hired him in a major market. But they did. The reason they did is because they saw he had the ability to relate to an audience. That's what an air talent does. He did it in a unique way. He got listeners to be interested in what he and his group do every day. Not man...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

There are a grand total of 50 Jack stations in the entire country. Out of 14,000 stations, 50 are Jack. This is not a significant issue. My point is the vast majority of stations have live local personalities. Once again name one Top 100 market where ALL the stations are jock-less. If the audience w...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

Where's your "So-Called" Evidence/Research that states that people want Radio without Air Personalities, and thats giving the people what they want? As I said earlier in my post, name one Top 100 market where there are no on-air personalities. Name one. Go ahead. Lots of on-air people. Every day, I...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

An on air talent in a city gets alot of listeners, I travel a lot. I listen to radio in a lot of cities. Every place I go, the stations have local air talent. Name a Top 100 market where there are no local DJs at all. Even places like Lincoln Nebraska and Bakersfield CA have local talent. I'm here ...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

Great...then stop replying to my posts. You only want to hear what you agree with, and that won't come from me. You prefer your opinion to documented fact.

Re: The trend is changing, what do you think it will change

Of course a company that takes my money to tell me I'm doing good will report good things to me. That's not the purpose of Arbitron. Their purpose is to tell advertisers where to put their money, and they make more money selling that information to advertisers than they do with radio. Just because ...

Re: The trend is changing, what do you think it will change

Maybe this is news to you, but when people stream stations on their phones or computers, the stations they tend to listen to are their favorite OTA stations. There is no station on any platform that outranks OTA stations. None. And radio companies don't make radios, so they don't care if people stop...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

Did You Read Arbitron's ban(Neilson) on Posting & re-posting their Research?) . I didn't post their research, I posted a link to it. That's allowed. You didn't answer All the Questions at all... what about the 12-24's leaving Radio in Droves? Where did you come up with that figure? If you read the ...
