Radio Business Report quotes from the cover story of Barrons, which features what RBR calls “a scathing attack on radio stocks as a place to invest.” According to RBR, the story says that the folks who run radio companies “may not be facing up to the full extent of the industry’s challenges.” While the demise of radio has been forecast many times before, “things could really be different this time,” the article said.
Not to suggest there aren’t elements of truth in this, but where in God’s name is Radio’s PR campaign? Are we really that bad off as an industry? Are we going to simply stand by as Barrons uses the photo shown here to illustrate their story? Is this an accurate depiction of YOUR corner of the industry? Because it sure doesn’t describe mine.
