See it coming

Post by danmac » Wed Nov 09, 2011 4:46 am

I hope that I'm not the only one that could see this coming. As fewer and fewer companies have gained owership of more and more Radio Stations, I felts that the best way to have Continuity throughout a company, the company would have to make all the programming and talent more of the same thoughout the company.

All the AC stations would basicly have the same people on all the shifts though the day. All the other formats would do the same thing. They would be broadcast and programmed from and a central location.

The small town stations have been doing it for years with SMN and then ABC Radio and so on. The small town station could trade 2 minutes an hour with "The Networks" get Top Talent, Top Rated Programming and never have to worry about Talent not showing up for a shift. They just had to make sure the Affidavits were sent in a timely manner.

So the Mid-size cities and Big cities have been hit with the downsize staffs. As long as there are companies trying to save money in a down economy there are going to be downsizing.

I am sorry for all the "Talent" that have lost jobs. Many of those great DJs could use their talents to get others to buy into small or mid-size or larger Radio stations that they could be in control of. They could show the "Big" company people how to do Radio best, "Live and Local"

I'm out of radio and happy. Good Luck to all those who did not deserve to get the pink slip.

Dan.
