Something Rotten in Denmark

This from the blog Engineering Radio: “Radio has lost its connection with the local community and has marginalized itself.  Now the major owners are riding the wave which is in decay. Radio is no longer about the listeners or even the advertisers… I wonder if they’ll talk about that issue at the NAB, or will it be drowned out by happy talk of The Recession ending and a bright future ahead.  More likely the latter, no one in high levels of radio management wants to admit there is a problem. A problem they created. Firing most of the local talent will be the undoing of radio. That being said, radio equipment manufactures and vendors will do pretty well this year.  After all, equipment is an asset, employees are liabilities.”
