I was talking to a black radio legend who made me swear I would not reveal who he is.. but when I mentioned the need to have radical talk shows on the urban side to compete with the Rush Limbaugh’s and other conservatives, this executive told me, and this is a black man…. “As a rule urban radio does not hire intellectuals but ignorant niggas who just like music who are glad to have a job.” OH NO, I exclaimed there are some intellectuals in urban radio and he agreed and disagreed. He said “If they are intelligent, it would benefit them tremendously not to reveal it on the air.” I called a program director that I know and thought that he would disagree but he actually agreed. He stated we have been dumbed down to such a degree we don’t even realize it. He agreed that corporations on the urban side have no interest in losing the few ad dollars they have now and even if we had a number 1 talk show on, we will still only get 25% of the advertising the top white shows get. What do you think? Are urban radio announcers collectively stupid?
