From where I sit On The Kowch, it’s time to enjoy the good weather with family and friends during the hot hazy days of July and August. So, I’m going to take a break from writing my blog (first time in four years).
Instead, here are some of my favourite summer time On The Kowch blogs. There are a lot of new readers so for many of you, this will be an opportunity to catch up on what you didn’t get to see in past summers.
From where I sit On The Kowch, July is a good month to send out resumes and demos for that new job in radio. That’s because radio management is probably looking now at who they want to replace come the Fall ratings in September.
Don’t be fooled by the lazy, hazy days of summer. There’s a lot of meetings going on between radio program directors and general managers this time of year. I always found July and August was my crazy period as a program director. We had to deal with budgets and figure out who was staying and who was leaving before the end of August to make sure severance costs weren’t carried over into the new fiscal year starting September 1st.
