This is what happens when big money consolidators come to town and buy up the original content producers.
They believe the mall boxed experiences imported from five states away sells just as well in your town as mine, although we are on different coasts, the weather is different and people are slightly oriented differently.
To combat all that, they produce blah, uninspired, neurtal noise and content about vapid emptiness.
They milk the money out of local businesses for ads. The listeners flee, the ad rates and ad uptake drop. They fill the slots with national rubbish. Soon the local talent is shown the studio exit door.
It is time to get these on air personalities together and form community stations and push the ugly corporations financially off the local dial.
