I had kept away from listening to local morning radio for a few years. Last April I decided to come back to listen to a voice who brings positivity and great vibrations via the airwaves while I made my morning commute. That voice was @nelsobermejo.
I met @nelsonbermejo by interacting via twitter even though he has been a Radio Personality for many years. My perception of him online was so great I decided to tune into his radio show. Today I read the bad news that @nelsonbermejo has finished his contract with SBS.
I think many agree with that we need more people like @NelsonBermejo to change local Puerto Rican Radio industry. Having more people taking @nelsonbermejo’s approach I sincerely feel would be healthy for the complete industry but overall with fill a big gap.
The local radio industry has worked very aggressively contaminating the airwaves with the same old jokes and suppose bad taste comedy. Just by listening to most of these radio personalities I feel robbed and insulted when they approach everything with the same bad comedy they have been doing for ages.
While most big players like SBS are looking to follow those ratings by Arbitron which in my opinion are completely useless. If you are familiar with the sample taken to conduct these ratings and the old style method you would understand how invaluable they are. That might be one of the reasons why they have steered clear from trying to measure success with online campaigns because they would clearly demonstrate how off those ratings really are.
Many years ago while I was on a train commuting into New York City going to work i was reading Jesus, Life Coach: Learn from the Best which changed my life into doing something productive early in the morning other than reading the newspaper, listening to nonsense radio, or watching the news on tv. Since then I have a huge issue when I see people every day reading a newspaper with almost useless information. Listening to @nelsonbermejo gave me hope and inspired my day with most of the great content and thought provoking phrases he shared with us via the airwaves.
Last May I wrote De Seguidor en Twitter a Radioescucha (in spanish) for the blog @noveltica on how @nelsonbermejo had made me come back to listening Puerto Rico radio.
I guess hearing today’s news I will back off from Puerto Rico radio until @nelsonbermejo is back on the air or the Radio Industry follows Nelson’s lead.
If you live in Puerto Rico are you happy with how most radio stations insult us with terrible content ?
Would you be willing to boycott and let the radio industry know we need positive inspirations during the morning hours? Am I the only one that feels this way?
