Once again, a big Canadian network announces an on air shake up. That’s not what this blog is about.
I am an on air person on a much smaller scale than the Toronto TV market…and when I was on an even smaller scale…my first radio job…I got a phone call once from someone telling me that they didn’t care what I thought, what I was talking about, and they said that my job was only to report the news and weather. (I was an on air announcer, not a news person but anyway…) that phone call will stick with me forever. It was the first time a listener had spoken to me like that and I had to continue my live shift. I couldn’t get it out of my head…to be completely honest I was fighting back tears for the rest of the time.
Today details were announced for a new morning show with new, younger hosts, there’s no denying that about them. Whether you like it or not, whether you will watch this new show or not…that’s up to you. But PLEASE there is no need to SLAM the on air people just for taking on a new position, or because YOU don’t like them. I read some of the comments regarding the new hosts of this new morning show and I must say that I’m sad and disappointed. (I will not repost the rude comments as they don’t deserve my time and your attention.)
If you’re not fans, can you not just MOVE ON? Find something else to do? Find another morning show to watch??
They are REAL people who have their own reasons for taking these positions and who are you to judge and attack them??
