Looks Like I’m On The Job Endangered List
I love being a radio broadcaster and I've been fortunate to have been able to make this my career for close to 30 years.
I got started in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Washington playing 45's and 33's in the middle of the night on the Country radio station on the weekends and I became hooked. I decided to make a career of radio broadcasting.
We now flash forward to 2017 and a new survey of the worst jobs of 2017 has me and a lot of other folks on the danger list.
Take a look at the list and see if your career is on the list as well.
According to them, these are the worst jobs of 2017.
1 newspaper reporter
4 military personnel
5 pest control worker
6 disc jockey
7 ad salesperson
9 retail salesperson
10 taxi driver
It's a scary list especially with Fire Fighters and Military whom we depend on for safety.
I don't think this comes as a surprise as technology makes it easier and easier to replace these jobs and the consumer isn't overtly aware of any change so the back lash is minimal.
There is a silver lining in every cloud and I'm lucky that I have enough experience at my chosen trade and have kept up with blogging, computers and the technology to keep radio stations running.
I think I was lucky to get started when computers where starting to be a part of everyday business in radio, so I've adapted to the new way to do business.
I still don't think we are safe altogether but I know that those that love their professions will stick with them until the end, and if they must, they'll change careers.
I'll be here as long as you want so today isn't the day for me to walk away from radio.
I need you reading this blog and listening to our morning show on The Bull, because without you, I'd be talking to a wall, and then I'd just be plain crazy.
