Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

A question for folks in the biz

Post by Mega Hertz » Tue Nov 13, 2018 8:31 am

It seems to me that, years ago, stations programming would be decided locally. A PD, Sales Manager, even GM. Programming decisions would be made in house. But since deregulation, it seems more decisions are made at the corporate level. National formats, cluster tweeks and numerous stations flipping to the same format around the same time. Did it always used to be this way? It seemed like for a time, things like this were done in-house. Anyone that's been around a while care to chime in?

Mega Hertz,when slobberers rather than the mellifluous voices of my boyhood infest the airwaves,it's because the suits are going for the lowest common denominator to soothe rather than challenge or even entertain the masses.
