When MM Barbara Latham exited a few months ago, I had a feeling Gail would be on borrowed time. Iím not certain if this was Gailís decision to exit but usually a new manager always brings in his own team so I suspect it would be that.
Being an OM, Gail was probably caught between a rock and a hard place as you say. In a business known as a revolving door, she lasted longer than many. I think she deserves a lot of credit keeping WQIK on top albeit a couple times and it was still close. Two stations against one. It's called a winning strategy. Enough said.
The only thing thatís left for me to say is best of luck to you, Gail. I caught the story in All Access. I guess Iím guilty of stereotyping. I had an image in my head as to what an OM number cruncher type looked like. LOL. Boy was I wrong!
At any rate, should you chose to stay in radio, your experiences and successes too should open the right doors. Best of Luck, Gail!
Take it from numerous folks that have worked for Gail, she was not the most pleasant person to be around most of the time. She rarely, if ever, answered her phone or returned messages. She was known for some very demeaning language to her constituents as well as saying nothing to those that would give her a simple "Hi" in the hallway.
Before you attempt to paint a gleaming picture of someone you don't even know, do yourself a favor and check your facts. You weren't even close with this one.
