    His 'Harley,' or 'daughter's fancy clothes' are purchased through money he EARNED while pushing his company's agenda and increasing their bottom line.
    Don't make it sound like his f&*&ng company paid for that stuff. HE DID! Because he was employed by them.
    The fact of the matter is, at least in the states, radio companies are shedding talent. Radio isn't dying but radio jobs ARE. There are mom and pop ownership out there, yes, but the vast majority of radio jobs are through companies like IHeartRadio, Cumulus, Entercom, etc. and these companies (especially during COVID) are finding new ways to provide content without adding jobs.
    There will come a time, again in the states, when most on-air jobs will be done remotely and they'll be done by a few people.
    There are those of us who DID adapt, who did change, who did do podcasts for the group, who did interview sales clients because the sales manager wanted us to and we STILL got let go. Ratings? good, cost of our show? low.
    I don't think you're aware of just how bad it is out there in radio.
    I'm speaking from the context of radio in the US. I'm guessing it's different in Canada as there's different federal rules as it pertains to ownership in markets, etc. but it was only October/November that THOUSANDS were laid off.
    I think letting a few of these people rage about a career identity being killed (and seeing the future prospects not look so good) is okay. I don't think anyone should be meant to feel ashamed that they were fired or didn't do enough to keep their jobs.
