Visual Howlaround Title Sequence: RICO THIS ENTIRE ORGANIZATION


I personally enjoy the schadenfreude of them taking over terrestrial radio right around the same time iPods came about. Now we're in a world where you can stream anything you want to listen to at any time with no annoying ads with a paid Spotify subscription.

They may have ruined terrestrial radio, but it is increasingly irrelevant to the modern world, especially when you can just glance at your phone to see what traffic and weather are like. Even without them the format would be on the decline because of a massive loss of listeners to streaming.

Part this, part lack of innovation. Where is any of it? The same morning crews doing the same things you can watch on YouTube, that no-one wants to listen to on the radio anymore. But the answer? Keep doing that. People also wouldn't mind hearing actual local content mixed in with their terrestrial radio. Better have a national stream going the entire time with nothing coming from your local other than the guy on Saturday mornings doing a "hey we're down here at such and such car lot broadcasting live, come on down and see what they have to offer."

They have an app and have stations ther are only there and produce podcasts.  Not sure if it's bringing home the bacon

So that would be the people hosting The Worst Year Ever? That's 4 people, plus the dog.

It's not. They recently went through bankruptcy:

I'm sure the lack of commuter traffic this year hasn't helped their plans to get back to profitability.

Stupid phone.  Fark a clear channel and every corporation that helped destroy radio.  When I had to go to Facebook to find out about a multi car crash on the interstate, I knew the career that I used to work in, and love, was over.

Little to no local content.  The rise of shock radio jocks. 25 minutes worth of commercials? And all the good concert tickets going to the morning hosts, the sales staff, their clients, families and friends.  Why the fark should I talk up a Taylor Swift concert if I can't go? You'll get the promo, but it wont be genuine.

Stringent formats for computer generated playlists.  Remotes at farking Home Depot Your audience is older now. The older they get, the less they spend. And their heirs are content just to stream Spotify.

I listen to Tune in for my news, Spotify for my music. I miss the fun I had, but not the business.  Well, at least I miss the business it was when it was mom and pop owned. It's just sad now. Give it back to individual owners, or let it go.  It's dead Jim.  Just move on.

IHeart took the once proud sports station in Phoenix and made it into a laughingstock over the past couple years. They used to have provocative hosts, now they've settled for a third rate duo who does their shows from the showroom of a high-pressure car dealership. Granted, they pay for the airtime, but they can do better.

I use TuneIn as well. I only listened to terrestrial radio for a NFL game.
