A Little Good News

OK, I was feeling a bit ornery when I layed down that previous postin'.

Not to wimp out, but in fairness I can say there are indeed some hopeful signs. To wit:

The continued meltdown of certain mega-companies will mean more diversified ownership...

More of said companies going private means less pressure from the Wall Street bean-counter types...

The return to prominence of programming-oriented people like Dan Mason and Randy Michaels...

More and more industry captains are coming forward and prescribing serious changes to our troubled industry (check Tom Taylor's excellent newsletter for updates). Even puffpiece publications like Talkers magazine are beginning to acknowledge that all is not right with the biz. Recognizing the problem is the first step...

With the continued downtrending of conservaclone squawk radio in many markets, eventually, even management will get the message...

It's still pretty grim out there, but there are indeed hopeful signs. Keep fightin' the good fight...
