Beyond the expected

Better than skyfire?

By Tinka 3 February 2008 28

Saw this on a radio blog. Sure, it’s a great publicity stunt but what about young children? And when’s it on? Perhaps the whole thing’s a hoax?

Naked Ambition

In a daring move, 2CA’s vibrant new management team has apparently
issued a brazen ratings challenge to its FM competitors, saying: “if
we don’t get our ratings up we’ll take our trousers down.”

It has been reported that if 2CA rates under 10% overall in the next
radio survey, their management team will walk across Commonwealth
Avenue Bridge naked, except for pink bunny slippers and ribbons.

All money raised from this frightening spectacle will allegedly be
donated to charity, and the idea was apparently inspired by one 2CA
announcer’s involvement in a “full monty” activity last year.

According to industry sources, Canberra FM management is being
approached to do the same if 2CA rates at 10% or higher.  However, in
a bold demonstration of confidence, 2CA have apparently vowed to go
ahead regardless of whether Canberra FM accepts the challenge.  

What’s Your opinion?

Depending on what school you went to, sure.

Oh an ryed1, you may be right. I like to think that the Win News half hour is pretty darn shoddy. Pathetic audio quality, magnificently cheap-amateur type music sound-bytes, presenters that have about as much personality as a piece of wood…

If 2CA didn’t sound like an on air version of a funeral with announcers that sound like every family member just died, it may have more people listening. The inept current management of the station is so obvious that anyone could do a better job broadcasting from a garage. The blatant inbred relationships in the station make for a completely unfair working environment, with the only people getting ahead, the ones with a relationship connection within the station. In the recent past 2CA has lost some of its only staff that had half a brain and the qualifications to actually do the job, including a member of the management team who left in December after a very long term with the station. Being a former advertiser on the station, i was apalled that no effort was made to keep hold of the previous sales manager who was more interested in keeping and building a rapport with advertisers over filling pockets with money. Now replaced with a very confused has been business man, the once guiding light of Canberra radio is now a sad reflection of incompetence.

10% may be cracked by risky behaviour at an indoor party ?

Isn’t risky behaviour medical codespeak for men having sex with men?

wishuwell 3:39 pm 05 Feb 08

Risky behaviour. 10% might not be the only thing being cracked.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for the free publicity.

I can verify though that this particular stunt won’t be happening and 2CA’s announcers will be keeping their clothes on for this survey.

Nor have we dared our opposition. The last thing we want to see is Mark Parton naked on Commonwealth Ave Bridge 🙂

However, if my guys here at 2CA crack a 10% in the next survey they’ll be a mighty big “indoor” party and risky behaviour can’t be ruled out! 🙂
