Another Bend group hired another Bay Area vet, Jack Friday years ago. I think what we are seeing is radio pros looking for stable situations in markets that are not controlled by corporate stock quotes. What a strange turn of events. Now the trend is real pros are in the small markets. I would hope many listeners in these smaller markets realize it, but I doubt it. It also reveals radio pros who love their industry so much it doesn’t matter where they do it, and at what price.
