"Create" the "Perfect" Radio Station from the ground up

Postby Tape Splicer » Fri Jun 08, 2012 7:53 pm

With the latest BBM ratings posted I thought that perhaps it would be interesting to "create" the 'perfect' radio station. (The funding is from very deep pockets with the only string attached "make it work, make a profit".)

Choose a location, frequency, call letters and format. Pick the "on-air" personalities, Reporters, production/creative/copywriters, management and sales people from anyone living or dead who you have worked with or respect from another station.

I've only worked at one station in my career so I'll leave the choices to others.... Have fun.

This just shows that there is nothing new under the sun..... Some one has thought of it before hand.

try having live announcers who think "out of the box". relate to the community. make darn sure it's live and not VT between 6am and midnight, creating opportunities for entry level announcers. maybe the occasional newscast that is more than 90 seconds long and isn't written directly from the police blotter Ii.e.: the suspect 'fled on foot"...shouldn't that be "ran away"). severe limits on the amount of banter recapping last night's reality show lineup. and i'd do away with all those "Battle of the Sexes" games. a blanket ban on RAP music. oh and my perfect station wouldn't NEED a morning TEAM save for the news, sports and traffic announcers working with the morning man/woman.

oh yeah, howaboutthat said it's been covered before. ah well, back to my Tuned-In Radio App... :rockon:
Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!
