: true. but he's connecting with listeners so it also represents the station and its management. he should have a like page and keep his actual profile for friends and family not the public. by having it public he opens himself up to scrutiny like that of this board.
Totally agree. It alienates a huge chunk of listeners when you post about politics, especially in a music format. And it's not like he's posting links to report the news; he's posting his personal opinion and links to Fox and other right-wing propoganda. Yes, it's HIS page. But he's representing his radio station and his company. It's inappropriate and unprofessional. I hate it when jocks don't have personal pages. It's lazy, and it blurs the line of professionalism. Then again, it's his PD's fault for not enforcing it.But if Bryan is as great as he claims to be, he should know better.
: : It's his Facebook page!! He's free to write whatever he wants!
: : : : : Thanks for the shameless self-plug, Bryan. I've signed multi-year deals in the past without press-releasing it, but to each his own. Now you can go back to bragging about your weight loss program and talking Conservative politics with your listeners.
: : : :
: : : : yawn,
: : : : It grinds my gears too when he gets all Conservative on his Facebook. Maybe it's the format he's on but as a Top 40 guy I'd never talk politics at all with listeners. It's just a recipe for disaster IMO unless you're on a politically driven radio station and have a heavy base.
: : : It's irresponsible of him. And it's not the format; country radio isn't full of a bunch of bubba hicks in overalls anymore who have Dubya tattooed on their arms. The format is younger nowadays, but regardless. Unless you're a news or talk station, it's inappropriate. Can't believe his PD allows him to do that.
