From experience, management may have said there was no budget... or to get reimbersed for the expense of the domain it would be a hassle, so someone on the airstaff just did it for the better of the station. There are a lot of stations that operate this way.

From talking to people at other stations there are not a lot (except the big companies like Clear Channel who have a web department) that have a standard way to handle web domains and hosting, it just happens as they move along.

: Anyone else find it interesting that Midwest doesn't have an official policy regarding domain names and hosting its station web sites?

: Normally domain names are held in the name of the corporation with someone like legal counsel as the authorized contacts, and web sites are hosted on internal company web hosting servers.

: For example: madisonjamz.com is registered to WJJO's afternoon guy Ozz, to his home address, and is hosted by a random third party web hosting company called Gothamweb. Anyone who has any management experience whatsoever should know that's a recipe for disaster.
