But wait, there’s more?
If it wasn’t for the references to digital listening methods, that ad could pass for the early 90s. Station logo, design, style of ad, even Fordham himself. Dire.
google and alexa
Yep, this has been done by some 80+ year olds.
It looks like it’s from the '90s for sure lol.
When I saw the first one above I thought someone was showing an ad for when he first was on radio or something.
The station promos on 2CA mention Google and Alexa. I’m assuming 2CC runs similar promos, though I don’t listen to the station so I’m not sure.
I didn’t know BOG can make ads for other networks? That’s as appalling as the Laws PowerPoint ads.
And isn’t Google and Alexa a brand so should start with capital letters?
As for the logo, what is the reason for it looking like a tab for an app they don’t use this version on their website.
All the ‘Forever Classic’ stations I’ve heard mention smart speakers as a way of listening.
Either Gem has left hit104.7 or this is just ARN letting her spread across their network?
Can anyone confirm?
This is the case as I understand it
Interesting as I always thought SCA had full programming control over Canberra, with ARN managing people/employment.
Many of you my know that after a susscessful nine-year radio career that saw me launch three radio programs and rack up nine Australian Commercial Radio Awards, I was made redundant in the great purge of 2019.
Then COVID-19 came along and needless to say the last six months were tough and I went through some pretty dark periods. To those who reached out and offered support, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
But I can now reveal some exciting news! From Monday 13th July I’m returning to radio launching a brand new local breakfast show on 2CC, talking all things Canberra.
I’m in the process of packing for the big move on Frjday, so have pity on me.
Interestingly, the return to local breakfast on 2CC comes almost exactly a year after the station started to relay Alan Jones live on breakfast.
Good to hear that 2CC is re-instating a local breakfast program after just a year of 2GB, although this really should’ve been done from the Monday after Alan Jones’ final show.
Yes- pathetic that they networked Alan Jones in the first place. Not that I listen to 2CC (and Canberra is a small ‘L’ liberal skewing ABC town) but a locally presented breakfast talk show is still required.
I thought Canberra skewed more Labor considering the number of public servants.
From memory the local ACT Assembly has more Labor pollies then Liberal.
As @dxnerd said, liberal (small L), not Liberal party (LNP).
It’s an anniversary i’m not particularly thrilled with
Wasn’t Tim Shaw’s letter to management convincing enough
I get the impression the original decision was more about getting rid of Tim than putting Alan on.
unfortunately Tim wasn’t the only casualty almost a year ago. But that’s in the past.
