I am going to have to disagree with you here. You all forget who is calling the shots with this station, Lisa Adams. And from what I hear, she is calling the shots. She has a history of training from within and paying a high premium for creativity. When jocks come on to MOViN, they will bring all personality to the station, and not just be voices.
You think Lisa Adams is calling the shots? Do you really believe that? Check all the trade publications. The beat-my-chest quotes were coming from Alan Burns and Marc Kaye. Lisa Adams being the PD was barely a blip on the radar when you read those articles.Not to mention Alan Burns is trying to make this format into a sellable commodity. Do you really think Alan Burns is going to sit on the sidelines and let Lisa Adams drive this inaugural format with his name written all over it?On another note -- she might be everything you claim she is in working with 'personalities,' but if she treats staff on a similar level as she did with some of the outgoing KLSY staff, she'll lose credibility and respect real fast.
We all complain that radio is getting redundant and stale, but then when someone goes out on a limb to be inovative and try something different, you shoot it down before it gets off the ground!!!
Right. So where are the flurry of copycats across the country?Look, radio groups in Seattle looked into things like 'Jammin Oldies' and other rhythmic variations. There's a reason other stations haven't flipped to the format -- you figure it out yourself as to why. THAT'S why some people on this board are skeptical about the success of Movin.
As for the Sandusky group as a whole, they needed to get shook up!!! I think that it will all be for the better for the cluster in the end.
So, the ends justify the means? Yes, Sandusky needed to do something with 92.5, but it was consecutive dumb decisions on their part that completely imploded on them.
