Buzz Brindle

When I was part of the day-to-day radio world, there was rarely a morning when I didn't wake up and hop out of bed with a sense of purpose.Even as corporate concerns about shareholder value forced programming to focus more on bottom-line budgets & revenue generation more than on creativity & content creation, there was still driving desire to provide an experience of value to the station's listening community. In other industries, I haven't found this to be the case.

Lately, though, I've been reading & hearing a lot of talk from motivators which have similar themes to what Simon Sinek discusses in his TED Talk. I find that trend to be encouraging.


It IS encouraging. Radio is unique in its ability to tell stories, reflect the local vibe, provide experiences and even escape. As Simon points out, it is less about the how and what, and so much more about the why. This quality is within the heart of many station brands if programmers and managers are willing to let it out. Thanks for commenting, Buzz.
