Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

You prefer to believe your opinions than read accepted facts. That's fine. Believe whatever you want. I posted you the facts, not from radio, but an independent source. You don't like what it says, so you dispute it. I'm not going to get into a back & forth with you on this. If you'd read the report...

Say whatever you want. For over 92% of the people in this country, OTA radio is just fine.

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

How much do you pay for OTA radio? Has a local station ever sent you a bill? No. You want what you want, and you want it for free with fewer commercials. And you don't care what it costs the station. I also don't know where you come up with the idea that radio companies don't spend money on people. ...

the Morons who are running many Radio properties will try, and Lose. they've forgotten about PEOPLE, and Entertaining People, because doing that costs Money, and many are unwilling to make that Investment.

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

Once the jobs become more readily available, I believe the talent of the DJs will improve the quality of the radio. My experience with that is the opposite. In the 80s, Docket 80-90 doubled the number of radio stations, and as a result led to a huge increase in jobs. But the quality of the new DJs ...

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

the Perception IS Radio as an Industry is on the Ropes from people who were displaced or Are IN Radio Now. To be honest, I don't care what former employees think. I program to listeners, not the industry. And at my station, we're making money, getting good ratings, and making great radio. That's al...

Re: School Delays with Wordpress?

The scary part of this is ensuring the information is coming from an authorized source. The last thing you want is some 11 year old kid to post that school has been canceled. The easy way is to check the "comments" box, and have systems post their status as a comment to a main story. Some schools us...

Re: Larry Lujack is dead...

I was there. They showed his picture on the screen for a few seconds, grouped with two others. Several other radio people got the same treatment. Very different from what Dick Clark got last year.

Re: Will Radio Get Worse Before it Gets Better?

So, the concept of a Good Product Has changed... so by what yardstick are we judging a Good Product by? By the same yardstick we in radio judge everything by: the ratings. We know what people want from radio by what they do and how they behave. We get that information, and make decisions. Not all d...
