Friends don’t let friends drive their radio careers into the ground.
With the radio industry kicking up turmoil these days – and the largest group (Clear Channel) possibly in play – targeting solid companies to find a radio career that can last has become more difficult.
My no-holds barred assessment is in this article and includes …
1. The safest radio companies to work for. That means, work here, not there. I name names. Read this and save the grief.
2. Which radio groups are career killers? You know one, but do you know them all? You should if you want to keep working in radio. And avoid them.
3. Future employers with whom you must proceed with caution – and why. You know me; I’ll lay it out honestly.
4. A break down of each of the following radio groups: CBS, Clear Channel, Saga, Entravision, Cox, Cumulus, Townsquare, Cox, the new Hubbard, the old Bonneville, Entravision, Beasley, Spanish, Salem, Radio One, Emmis, the merged new Citadel and Entercom.
Plus, the four best radio companies with a bright digital future. You’ll want to know which companies these are because radio without a strong digital component could be a dead end even if your future employers are nice.
Nowhere in print or online will you read a more complete list of where to work and who are radio’s jerks. Must have.
