'Decision Time' -- Are You Planning On Staying In Radio?
November 3, 2011 at 12:03 PM (PT)
Radio Programmer/Consultant/Talent Coach JJ DULING asks in his current blog, "Is It 'Decision Time' For You?"
He writes, "I think it's safe to say the radio talent world was rocked last week by hundreds of 'R.I.F.' firings at the two biggest companies. It's put a lot of you (even those still employed) in the position of having to soon ask yourself, 'what's next for me?'.
"Earlier this year, I found myself in a similar position and it can be...well, challenging," he continues. "You may decide to hang in or opt out and re-invent yourself, perhaps in a completely different profession. A couple of colleagues suggested I re-post this blog so those of you not sure of your next move might see that you're not alone. You'll hear a lot of noise in the near term, some affirming your love for your craft and others telling you it's the end of the road. It can be terribly confusing and demoralizing and I feel your pain."
