Entercom’s Networks; Every Market Sounds The Same

Jessamyn McIntyre leaves 710 ESPN Seattle after Wednesday. She will become an Executive Producer at Q13 KCPQ TV.

Entercom adds New York station WNYL’s Sunday feature, Postmodern to the schedule of 12 Entercom stations, including KNDD 107.7, Seattle, and 94.7 KNRK, Portland. The program is hosted by Scott Lowe and feature Alternative rock from the 80s and 90s.

Ellen Tailor, formerly with KCPQ TV, recently purchased a new car. It came equipped with Sirius XM radio. Ellen is being bothered by those non-stop sales calls from Sirius XM.
Also, from Ellen: “Lady in Michigan recognized my Seahawks sweatshirt and said she has a cousin that lives in Seattle. I asked whereabouts. She told me Kennewick.”

    1. Would you rather take a cut in pay to help the company get through this Covid-19 crisis, (We Are In This Together), or would you rather get pink-slipped?
      According to Payscale.com: Entercom Communications Corporation pays its employees an average of $42,237 a year. Salaries at Entercom Communications Corporation range from an average of $26,813 to $83,724 a year. Entercom Communications Corporation employees with the job title Radio Producer make the most with an average annual salary of $31,265, while employees with the title Radio Producer make the least with an average annual salary of $31,265.
      You are supposing that the disc jockey is in the $60k-$83k range?
      Where the average Joe gets a yearly 50 cent raise (we live in a master/slave society) it seems incomprehensible that a corporation suffering such financial losses, as Entercom has during Covid, could muster up much more than a small bump for more work by a surviving minion.
      “Reflecting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy at large, the broadcasting sector and Entercom’s business, net revenues for the quarter were $175.9 million, down 54%, compared to $380.7 million in the second quarter of 2019
      Spot revenue declined 65% on a year-over-year basis while digital revenue rose 19%.”
      I don’t know how the Fields family can continue putting food on their family under such dire circumstances! (I learned grammar from my good buddy, GW.)

      1. So then “false” is the true answer.

        Entercom radio producers are already being paid sixty-three-and-a-quarter cents per hour above Bernie’s Dream Wage, presuming they work five days a week, eight hours a day and get two weeks paid vacation. Is that eatin’ high on the hog or what?

        But wait! What if there’s a creative crisis?

        “Oh Krisstle, I’m going to have to ask you for one more scintillating seven second liner before you go. Hurry up now, girlfriend, you should still make your bus or the next one. Maybe rework my classic, “At home, at work, or in your car” (that I wrote!), to maybe “stay at work or go live in your car” (that I wrote just for YOU HA HA!). Go gurrl. Make it fun and peppy and have a sooper dooper staycation!! Luv ya, BFF!!!!!!!!!!!!”

        P. S. I already punched out for you.

        1. Overworked and underpaid these days. I never thought that could be said about disc jockeys, but I remember the biz as being fun.

  1. Congrats Casia! You posted the item regarding Jessamyn McIntyre a day before all other media blogs had the story. Nice when that happens.
