ok, I've seen your comments and I know you want to see the e-mail that was sent by a potential WXYT-FM employee and I've decided I'm not going to post it. I've gone back and forth because I know this is the only web site that provides many of you with your "inside radio scoop," but I think it is best for all the parties involved if I just leave it alone.
The person who wrote the e-mail sent it directly to the person he had an issue with and that should be enough, I don't think making it public serves a good purpose for anybody involved. The person who was upset about the situation is a VERY passionate radio guy, he wants to be in radio and help make it entertaining for the audience so I don't want my blog to be the reason he doesn't get another job from CBS or any other company. He's an advocate for great, entertaining radio and when he cools off I want him to give radio another shot without his anger and frustration hurting his long term job prospect. However, I think him sending the e-mail will have an adverse effect on any future opportunities with CBS in Detroit.
I am doing what I wish somebody had done for me when my frustration may have gotten the better of me, I am saving him from his own passion for the business. I'm hopeful that as time passes he will get back into the business (working with me) and he will be thankful that this e-mail didn't go public.
Radio is a nasty business on the inside, there is very little regard for what the audience wants, so you need to maintain your relationships if you hope to have opportunities. If I post this e-mail, the people who were the object of his scorn can and likely will hold it against him in the future.
