"Losing the American Dream"

December 2011 - "He and his wife were living in their Crofton home
with their three children. Knepp earned enough at his job as retail
marketing director for HD Radio for his wife to be a stay-at-home mom.
The couple lived comfortably. In August 2009, Knepp was laid off in a
round of company cutbacks."

"Heads Roll at iBiquity, Clear Channel"

January 2009 - "This past week iBiquity, HD Radio's proprietor, laid
off 20 people. According to Radio World, these are the first bona-fide
layoffs at the company since its founding in 2003. iBiquity's web site
claims the company employs some 130 people; if that number is
accurate, that would constitute a corporate workforce cut of an
impressive 15%."

"iBiquity = Titanic
That place had around 5 or 6 "Business Actions" in 2010. Every day you
wondered if you were going to get a call from the dragon lady (AKA
Cankles) in HR to tell you that your time is up and how much "they
hate to do this". Personally, I'm glad to have gotten laid-off from
that sinking ship. I dreaded going in there on Monday, and it would
only be Saturday morning! They have been wanting to get their IPO for
the last 5 years and with the way things are going, it is never going
to happen. Investors are no longer shelling out money to make HD Radio
work. It has exsisted for over 10 years and 90% of the population
STILL has no idea what it is, or the benefits of having an HD Radio.
Another thing... I watched people who founded the company, and who
were there from the start get laid off, and basically had the rug
pulled out from under them. If anyone was ever stabbed in the back, it
was these guys. I am a guy, but guess I didn't fit into their "Ole
Boys Network". Please save yourself and stay clear of this company.
They will tell you how great you are, drop you when you've worked your
rear end off for them and then send you home with what their
definition of a severance package is. The severance was laughable,
just like those jokers in "upper management". I must explain..a single
"Business Action" would include 10+ people at
a time, when they only have around 80 people still working there. They
have a bare bones engineering department, and the way things are
going, those are the last people that should be getting the axe.

iNiquity had a big layoff in January 2009 and this occurred in August
2009. They had more in 2010, that went unreported. It is obvious that
iNiquity has bombed with the retailers, and had more layoffs than

If you need to re-license your radio station good luck getting them to answer the phone or respond to email. Is this not just like all corporate radio endeavors?
Huge plans, huge expenditures, little ability to execute anything and then financial failure.
If radio projects were started and managed by radio people then you would see little to no financial crisis and failure.
