Back in the day when I was in radio, me and my morning show partner begged the company for a prep service.
Something similar to ACN. There was one such service that we really wanted to get, but we were told that a cross-town competitor had it. What really ticked us off was the fact that the station didn't have a local morning show, but John Boy and Billy. Since JB&B is syndicated, who was using the prep service? The afternoon jock? Nope. All he did was read liner cards. Then we found out the competition's owner bought the prep service AFTER signing on JB&B. They didn't want ANYONE to have it. I don't know who I was angrier at: the competition, for pulling this stunt, or the prep service. They didn't care that the station wasn't using their prep; they just wanted the money.
Has anyone else here had this situation happen to them?
