    One thing I will give Entercom credit for is that they're working on the podcast thing. Cadence 13 is a great source of content.

    But again, that's a dedicated podcast network.

    What is Entercom doing to shift the balance of content creation away from the terrestrial signal to an online presence beyond saying "a Radio.com station" in the ID and maybe having a few jocks do podcasts?

    Yes, I was speaking generally. No, I did not work in Chicago. Do you?

    I have a lot of friends there.

    I wouldn't recommend shifting a lot of content creation away from on air, but rather find more ways to use the same content. On-air is inefficient. Once it airs, it's gone. Online is a way for that content to live, and find new audiences. Think in terms of musicians. They sing a song live once, and the audience enjoys it for that moment. But they record it and distribute it, then more people can hear it. Someone at a station does an interview, and that interview should be used on air, online, and in a podcast, as just one example.

    How am I ignoring it?

    I don't have any objections before, now or later. They are doing what they have to do.

    Here is more

    Terri Hemmert will step down from her midday shift at Entercom AAA 93.1 WXRT Chicago in the coming weeks.

    As first reported by Robert Feder, Hemmert will remain with the station to host “Breakfast with The Beatles” and fill-in when needed. She has hosted middays at the station since 1992.

    WXRT OM/PD Greg Solk told Feder that the company faces ““the awesome challenge of finding a successor to Terri for the midday shift in the coming weeks.”
