Re: Lots of fans on AA boards...

If you're going to do sales you should go sell something people actually want to buy - NOT radio. And if hearing your voice on the radio is still exciting to you after a few weeks of being on the air you're just a suffering ego. My advice to air talent: start a podcast or better yet a youtube channe...

Re: Salary question, please help

40k is like 80k in other professions - a very good salary. There is a person doing afternoons in LA making 50k. You will be lucky to get 40k and if you do, you will have to do much more than an air shift. Good luck.

Re: What do you predict about Radio's future?

Radio frequencies will be around, because it is still a way to reach people and there will always be some advertiser willing to try it - even if it's return is nil, it may cost next to nothing to use. But radio is done as far as being relevant and cutting edge. I learned of Whitney dying thru my iPh...
