WHAV Premiere Screening – Corporate FM: The Killing of Local Commercial Radio

Six experts will discuss the state of the media following nonprofit WHAV’s New England premiere screening of “Corporate FM: The Killing of Local Commercial Radio”.

The panel includes Corporate FM Director Kevin McKinney; Dan Kennedy, assistant professor, Northeastern University School of Journalism; Dr. Donna L. Halper, associate professor of communications, Lesley University; Scott Fybush, WXXI, Rochester, N.Y., and former WBZ and WCAP broadcaster; William J. Macek, owner of WPKZ, Fitchburg, and New England radio owner/operated for 22 years; and Marc Lemay, communications manager, Greater Lawrence Family Health Center, and former WHAV news director.

“Corporate FM: The Killing of Local Commercial Radio” features interviews with Jewel, The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, former Butt Hole Surfers manager Tom Bunch and a wide array of DJs and experts who have witnessed radio’s destruction from the inside. McKinney warns “the death of privately operated local radio stations is not just destroying the stations that are bought up, but damning the future of all stations on the dial—the public and college stations as well. The entire medium of radio becomes threatened when there are only two stations worth listening to.”
