RFFocus READER STATES: Brian McKnight, Keith Sweat Don't Deserve Radio Shows

keithsweat“Kevin,

Ed Pearson and are both history and screwed 18 year ABC vet Mel Devonne in Feb 2009 to add Brian McKnight without consulting the affiliates who were satisfied with Devonne for 18 . This was not reported. Also Brian McKnight has a IRS bill of 200k, a recent divorce and weak single and a even weaker CD week, and none of this is being reported. This dude needs cash. Brian McKnight, , Keith Sweat and other called singers DO NOT deserve opportunities in the biz. All programmers who give these called singers radio positions DO NOT respect our business and should be put on BLAST ()“…Izone

I agree with several of your points, especially the part about who are disrespecting our craft and our business by doing these crappy ass shows. How would they feel if we went on stage and sang their songs (without giving them credit).   I like both Ed and Doc and I don’t what parts they played in the decision to add these shows. I have never met Ken. As far as Brian.. would it be a stretch to assume you don’t like him? (laugh). Those Cali   divorces are infamous. I wish him luck. I have heard from various sources that some of these former celebs are calling the programmers direct to sell their own shows. To a large extent, I think Citadel is the model for what’s to come for most companies. In the next couple of years, as radio scrambles to find revenue, the concept of will be less appealing….kevRoss
