RAMP video: John Loscalzo conducts our exclusive interview with Lee Abrams. The former Chief Innovation Officer of The Tribune Company grants his first video interview after resigning to My Damn Channel.
Lee Abrams spent a great deal of his media life in radio. John Loscalzo asks Abrams in our exclusive interview for his lay of the land . Abrams says, “Obviously, the Internet is going to be their future.” Abrams: “Right now it’s on auto pilot. A lot of people say, I ruined radio by tightening it back up in the 70s. That was what was necessary competitively back then. Now it’s the exact opposite. Radio is too tight. Too researched. It has to re-engage with music beyond focus groups and callouts.”
