Lochlin Got Fired From 95.7 Cruz FM, State of Radio, Moving Forward

The Dean Blundell Show

About the Episode

Welcome Back!

It’s a big show today. If you’ve been fired from a radio gig or ever had your employer decide they will change your life to no fault of your own materially, this show is for you.

Lochlin was let go from Cruz FM last week after a nine-year run. He was and is one of the best radio hosts in the country, with huge ratings.

We talk about Loc’s firing experience. How weird it is to be forced and how they let him go (a box of dildos is involved in the story).

We talked about:

– how to not take getting fired personally

– the state of the industry and context around Radio’s attempt to cut its way to profitability.

– What does firing successful radio talent to save on big salaries do, and what is the cascading effect of future losses for a short-term decision?

– What Lochlin loved about doing morning radio and what’s next for him and so many incredible content providers who get fired for being too good at their jobs.

– Advice for anyone in Radio or thinking about getting into Radio.

– Dean waxes about giving your agency to people who control your life and well-being and why it’s never been more critical to protect your agency and advocate for yourself. No matter who you are or what you do.
