This will, as the title to the post says, be brief. I will explain in greater detail the decision in a few days – perhaps in the pages of the Herald if they accept my submission. It is important to note that the sale is of the terrestrial radio signal and the license to transmit on it only. We are planning to maintain our studio in Sand City and to continue broadcasting as similar a lineup as we can at www.radiomonterey.com. Michelle Jackson is going to take a more active role in operations as I pull back in light of my move back to MD full-time.
The reasons are: 1) the increasing onerousness of flying back and forth across the country twice monthly, 2) my desire to spend more time with my wife and sons, the years are flying by – with Michael now 15 and William 13 – they won’t be living at home that much longer, 3) somewhat disappointing financial results, 4) the expense of maintaining two residences, and 5) concerns about the viability of AM radio going forward.
