Paragon media sent us a blurb on their new blog that says since the Grammys are using their CBS telecast to attack radio, radio should return the favor and not promote the Grammys..I got news for you..the ratings were so bad for the last Grammy telecast that the general public was doing enough "ignoring" for everyone...
Ignore The Grammy’s
The favorite past-time of other media, their PR organizations and now the Grammy Awards of all things, is to smear radio to the general public. As others from radio have already chimed in to say (Bill Stakelin, Bob Neil, Randy Kabrich), the Grammy nominations television show opening theme that radio is no longer relevant is the ultimate slap in the face to radio so far.
So here’s a short and sweet suggestion to the entire radio industry:
IGNORE THE 2009 GRAMMY AWARDS.
