I'M THE GOAT
On the heels of my piling-on tirade about radio stations opting for syndicated programming over creating opportunities for local broadcasters, Virgin in Montreal is apparently dumping Ryan Seacrest and hiring an honest-to-goodness, warm body to do evenings and weekends. Kudos to program director Mark Bergman for "getting it." It took a guy who spent years on the air to understand that it takes someone who lives in Montreal to connect with someone listening in Montreal. Go figure.
