Radio Station Projects - My Project Philosophy

Most radio station projects began with a station changing the way they run their operations. The stations played all their audio from CDs, carts (tape), or live. The systems we put in place replaced that by playing back their audio.

The system was controlled by different departments of the organization depending on their job task. Producers would produce audio, music, commercials, station promos, etc. The music programming department would schedule the music to be played, when the commercials could be played, as well as the station promos. The traffic department would schedule the commercials that are to be played and have the clients subsequently be properly billed. The on-air talent would playback the audio as dictated by the scheduling. The on-air talent now had more time to prepare better live content. Ultimately, the engineering department was responsible for installing all equipment and maintaining it on a day to day basis.

As you can appreciate, the project covered every department of the organization. Radio is a special industry and one must work with, and motivate people with diverse motivations.
Engineers are technology driven people
Traffic people are accounting and numbers people
Producers are perfectionists
Program Directors carry the weight of the station on their shoulders
On-Air talent gets a wide range of people
Owners are… well owners and worried about their bottom line

In the end, these people involved in radio love the life. They do it for their passion for broadcasting. The pay is lousy, the hours are long, and getting fired is a rite of passage.
Convincing people that are this passionate that change is necessary takes a great deal of patience and understanding. Getting people to buy into a plan that has been developed, usually without their input, takes a special amount of skill. This is where I shine.
My expertise is working on a plan and bringing it to completion. This involves working with people and getting them motivated to do what they need to do. My attention to the details as the plan is being designed is one of the keys to my success. When all aspects of a project are accounted for beforehand, it makes the project flow better. My strength is in planning, executing, and working with people to get the project done.
