An Email From The Radio Chick
As of Jan 3rd, weâ€™ll be doing afternoon drive (3-7 pm) for Infinity broadcasting. Weâ€™ll be based out of the WXRK in NYC (Howard Sternâ€™s current station) and will be adding additional markets throughout the course of our employment with Infinity, as part of the expansion of other â€œFree FMâ€� hot talk stations around the country.
When Infinity first approached with their generous offer, I turned it down. Twice. They then returned with an irresistible combination of situation, compensation and guarantees. It is a tremendous package and big opportunity for all us on the show. My contract with Sirius did not prohibit us from doing terrestrial radio while broadcasting at Sirius. While it would be tough, we were prepared to honor our commitment to Sirius, and continue to host the midday slot on Stars 103, as well as PM Drive for Infinity. Sirius instead opted to release us from our contract. I completely understand their position.
We were saddened we were not able to explain, or even say goodbye to our Sirius listeners on air, but that was not our call.
You will be able to listen to the Radiochick show online beginning Jan 3rd, 2006. You can also stay in touch with the show by signing up on the mailing list at www.radiochick.com so we can notify you of big news, like new market announcements when they happen. We might be coming to a station near you in the not too distant future.
Our listeners at Sirius were tremendous. We are very grateful to you for making the experience at Sirius so enjoyable for us. Thank you.
