I worked at Clear Channel part-time (More than a year)

Pros

As a producer for 3 local news-talk programs for WRVA, I learned my way around a board, how to edit and finalize audio in less than 15 seconds, and I developed an on-air personality through my interactions with the hosts. That helped me to land a gig DJing for the local indie radio station, WRIR which I love.

Cons

Clear Channel is an utterly evil corporation owned by the Romney family with it's tendrils sucking the life out of low-paid college students across the country. I slaved away with no hope of a raise, worked insane hours, and had to put up with affronting and insulting political opinions that often targeted me. It was not a happy place for me.

Advice to Management

Find a way to offer raises to those who deserve it, stand up for your employees.

    Pros

    You're employed. That's about it.

    Cons

    The management sucks and the culture reflects that

    Advice to Management

    Get all new management. All of them are shady self centered bigots who will sell their souls and yours for the right price

    I worked at Clear Channel part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Market Leader with a national footprint of stations

    Cons

    Went private and tried to cut their way back to profitability. It did not work. They lost too many dedicated people.

    Advice to Management

    You can never go back to what radio was. Times have changed.
