Pros

Great properties to sell. Clear Channel offers amazing resources and training opportunities

Cons

Very little thought to the individual and LOTS of paperwork. They are more concerned with managing the processs than closing the sale. Too many different agendas/initiatives to follow and they seen to change on an almost weekly basis.

    Pros

    The product itself, radio and TV programming/marketing is fun and challenging. There are some talented people in the organization

    Cons

    The home office is relentlessly fixated on maximizing profits to the detriment of the product. Corporate made the statement several times: "We are in the business of selling advertising. Not entertainment." and this mindset hurts the company and contributes to its shrinkage in use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some radio product experts and give people reasons for listening to on-the-air radio. And get back to 12 minutes an hour of commercials. 22 minutes an hour is way too much. You are driving people to their Ipods.
