Why radio isn’t a great career move…

…at least, not as a full-time career offering a ton of stability.

With the firing of Joey Butler and resignation of Kelly at Oldies 107.3, I am now the senior member of the airstaff at Main Line Broadcasting, with my 3 1/2 years of part-time service for MainQuad/Main Line.   And this is, unfortunately, fairly typical in radio.

Don’t get me wrong – in terms of actual on-air experience, I am the least experienced member of the airstaff.

But in terms of continuous service with what is now Main Line… my 3 1/2 years is the longest on the airstaff and is probably 2nd or 3rd in the entire Richmond cluster, on- and off-air.

So if you’re looking for a business where you can stay a long time and build some seniority… radio may not be it.

On the other hand, it’s still a lot of fun. 🙂

And I’ll see you on the radio… Sunday, noon-5 on Oldies 107.3…
