I saw something similar to this posted by Dallas sports media writer Barry Horn, and thought it would be an interesting topic for Boston, as well.
Let’s say you’ve just bought up a radio station in the Boston area. You’ve got a great reach with your signal and money for talent isn’t an issue. You can sign anyone, even someone already working somewhere else.
What’s your schedule? Who do you sign to fill the following slots:
- 6:00 am to 10:00 am
- 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
- 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm
- 6:00pm to 9:00 pm
- 9:00 pm to midnight
Everything is up to you. You can have solo hosts, or teams of hosts. You can hire people who are already working at various outlets. (Let’s try to keep it to Boston media figures, though)
What other features would you incorporate into the programming? What wouldn’t you do?
