I told him he was preaching to the choir. Everything he told me I dealt with in Wichita, Fresno and Yuma. Ego-centered morning shows not wanting o tbecome part of the process of moving the radio station and their shows forward. Complaining to senior manager's that I was making them work (not really, they would tell them I am changing the way they do things that work). If it worked you wouldn't have a new PD telling you how to do your show and the fine points of success. Manager's don't listen to programmer's problems with morning shows. Most of them consider them to be revenue commandos and actually enjoy their ego-centric persona, it reminds them of themselves. Get a senior manager on your side to help you with your concerns. Don't sweat this yourself or you will be driven crazy. Lip-service senior managers suck, ones who act concerned, but really don't care. They don't want to get involved. You need a Mike Wheeler, Scott Mahalick or Bob Glasco type that get it too and can un-stick something that's stuck.
I felt sorry for my boy and everything he went through, but I am so glad it wasn't me!
