Wright Media Group consultant Brian Wright is calling on the NAB & NRB to turn up the volume on their communication with the Federal Government. Brian says, “They need to make a strong push RIGHT NOW, beginning with the FCC, to convince them that radio is an essential product & service to nearly the entire US population! These radio stations, big and small, will need just as much help as banks, restaurants and hotel chains. Station managers, call your lawmakers today. Radio is a primary source for millions on how to get through and out of this crisis.”
KSGN/Riverside PD Bryan O’Neal (at left) checks in with HisAir. Bryan says, “Hey Ted, just want to fill you in on what we’re doing during this coronavirus time. Brandi and I are broadcasting using Comrex from our respective houses. I’m using our remote gear which makes it sound like we’re still in the studio, Because it has the exact same Voco8 processor that we use in the studio, but we are totally being upfront and telling people that we are not all in the studio together. Melissa’s midday shift is also done remotely, she is tracking that from home.”
