Here's a familiar one

Are you someone who's close to hanging themselves? Have you almost completely given up on this world? Then, we may be able to push you all the way off the ledge!

WEPP, we PP on the road, and we're coming straight from our bathroom to yours! And we are in need of a new Morning Show Host!

Can you run a morning show alone? Do you burn the midnight oil trying to prepare for each days show? Are you full of energy, and love getting out in the community? Are you a PROD GOD? Can you work weekends & evenings too? Can you sell a ketchup popsicle to an Eskimo in white gloves? Can you MC everything the Station Owner's friends put on? Are you willing to travel 40 miles each day between our sister stations? Can you set up your own unpaid remotes? Do you have 20-25 years experience? Do you know Audio Vault, Selector, Cool Edit, Adobe Audition, Protools, ect?  Do you have a Masters degree and web skills? Are you willing to train new employees? Are you a Promotions wiz? Can you manage the station?

If this sounds like you- get in touch with us ASAP!

This is a PART-TIME position.

It seems like you are just trolling for a response now, Carter. Watching you two go at each other is quite amusing but nothing of value is being discussed. I understand your attempt at comedy lampooning the job posts, but that's what radio has become. It's like poking fun at sea salt. No one really cares at this point because radio will never be what it was and everyone knows that. Your posts may have had some comedic value 10 years ago when these type of job postings were first popping up, but now, eh, not so funny. It just sounds like you are bitter, if I may make that observation. The frustration with the selection of available jobs is felt by many, but I highly doubt that your posts will change anything. If you have that kind of contempt for the job postings, do something constructive to effect changes in the way radio is run. Buy up a small station and make it happen for you, then post an ad the way you think it should be posted. Be a solution, not an agitator.

You're right, I am just lampooning the job posts.

Btw- if this is a ten year old problem, then your right again, it's not funny- it's pathetic. And people who were here ten years ago, hopefully, have moved on. Just like on the air- a new audience every 15 minutes. Consider it recycling then. Or, I'll have to concede that all other Jocks, and you yourself, only roll out brand new, never been heard, jokes.

Not alot of "regulars" posting here anymore I'll agree. It was different with the message board on the main page with no topics, it was just a free for all and tons o' fun to read.

side note;
I don't do jokes, I report news, which is sometimes the joke in itself with the plethora of idiots nowadays.

Radio was like that in the 80's and it's a shame to say, it still is to this day in the small to medium markets. I find myself still working many hours. Even with the advancement of computers, things still take time to program and edit. The reel to reel and cart machines are gone, but now everything is computers. I love the business and will continue to be here until I retire.

Hope that's true. I said the same thing once myself. As it turns out, it's not really our decision.

Here is my quick reply, I am now part owner of WKVI am/fm and WYMR-fm. The General Manager and sit on our Board of Directors. I am making the change to not burn out our people. We are in a small market, with 3 stations. We use automation to help not to replace. Local News, Local Sports, Remotes, Open Houses and more. We are making the change and it shows in our billing and ratings. Which our ratings and billing are the highest we have ever had. I am willing to share with any GM, OM or PD on how we did it.
