How We Scoop Other Media
You probably noticed that our new web pages kick ass. This isn’t an exaggeration, we literally kick the t.v. and newspapers asses on most stories you care about. You see t.v. and newspapers are built from pre-internet models. Read more after the jump.
The newspaper has to gather up the days news and get it to the printer late night (or early morning) in order to have it on your front porch, so essentially, you are always getting the day befores news, not that days news. The t.v. is essentially the same thing. They make their money at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. so everything they gather is in relation to those times (and their morning news is just highlights of the stuff from the night before).
We here at the radio stations have a news team on hand finding out whats going on that day before the newspaper even hits your porch-we’re already 24 hours ahead of everybody. We have all the morning jocks (and jocks through the day) preparing for their shows, combing the net, checking out the news and entertainment channels and more. You see, in radio, we don’t care when you listen as long as you listen. These habits made us poised more than any other media source to bring you the latest, hottest news. Now as a rock station we’re not generally going to be covering hard crime and politics, but we’ll keep your eyes full of the fun, freaky and even helpful news you need 24 hours a day.
Yep, in the words of Tom Petty, “The future ain’t what it used to be”. Check out this fake newsreel.
