I think both television and radio really need to:
1-Make their basic entertainment content better. Entertaining, Interesting, Informative, SPECIAL. The basic core of what you do, whether old or new media. If your steak isn’t there, the sizzle doesn’t matter. It’s like a pretty menu and the food sucks. Look at everything you can do: Elements of Television, Radio, Music, Movies. You can be a media monster in your own way. Own the special things. Everyone shares so much of the same things, so having special personalities that can be relatable should be more important.
2-Grow the avenues of web, social media aspects, apps etc. All of this is important because the traditional ways are dwindling in certain ways. That said, this doesn’t matter if #1 stinks.
3-Podcasting. It’s growing in major numbers. There’s a million ways to do some unique podcasting. Media people should be all over it. Whatever gets your brand created into the everyday life of the regular person.
