As every radio person in L.A. now knows, country KZLA blew up this morning at 10:15 and signed on with the new “Movin'” format. The legendary Rick Dees will be returning to radio to host mornings, but the date hasn’t been announced yet. It’ll be interesting to see how the great morning battle unfolds as Dees squares off with Ryan Seacrest.
The sad news, of course, is that more radio people are out of work today. More of us are competing for even fewer jobs.
Hey, wouldn’t it be weird if the jocks canned this past year outnumber the ones who still have jobs?
On the good news side of things, I’m doing a few part time radio gigs here and there, some commercial and voiceover work, and (I’m not superstitious, but knock on wood just in case) I have some very cool, very exciting possibilities just over the horizon. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s hoping that light isn’t illuminating a sign that says, “Wrong way, go back!”
