Good Lord, it's carnage out there in Radioland.
AND WHEN you're talking about radio, that was before the economy went royally south. Now. . . .
But the small minds in expensive suits who run today's broadcasting conglomerates -- and, increasingly, public radio organizations -- need to reflect upon just one thing, which Inside Music Media's Jerry Del Colliano keeps pointing out.
How long do the suits expect they can produce any revenue at all if they keep firing all the people who produce content, which draws an audience, which attracts advertisers (or underwriters . . . or donors)?
It's carnage out there.
And the final carnage, which is yet to come, will threaten the existence of the medium itself. And there won't be a federal bailout to save the day.
