Is This Supposed to Motivate You?

The iHeart letter:

I intentionally waited to talk about this because I wanted to be certain I wasn’t reacting out of frustration or cynicism.

I thought I’d share it after Covid. I had no idea we’d still be dealing with the pandemic, still dealing with thousands dying here and abroad. But we are, and I don’t want to wait any longer.

I’m talking about the “open letter” from Bob Pittman to all iHeart employees. It appeared in AllAccess over a year ago, and you can read it HERE.

I read it again yesterday.

I still can’t find one reassuring, positive word about the air talent on iHeart stations who are responsible for building the listening audience used to make Bob so optimistic and wealthy.

That tells you everything you need to know about your role in iHeart’s success moving forward.
