My Letter to NJ 101.5 Management
Here is the letter I sent to our corporate Big Wig's in response to a recent memo. Is it obvious that I was trying to be funny, or am I going to be fired for this?
I'm in receipt of two memos from B.W and J.W., respectively and I must admit, I have some strong concerns!
As an old radio hag, I'm going to profess my complete ignorance of the following achievements, all enumerated in B's recent letter:
1)Meeting Q4 budgets
2)migrating all sites to the new template
3)launching TSI (our B2B platform)
4)our new loyalty platform
I believe these are just "mock" achievements, fabricated to make us feel good about ourselves. Furthermore, Mr. W, I believe that you stole the aforementioned phrases from some weird "office space"-type movie or sci-fi novel. "Platforms"? "Templates"? and my personal favorite, "Q4 Budgets"?
The following are the only achievements that are even REMOTELY comprehensible to us radio types:
1) getting free tickets
2) getting free meals
3) getting free anything
It's that simple!
Why complicate matters by including such sophisticated terminology in correspondence that will be read by--well, let's face it--social misfits who think they look really cool in headphones?
I suggest you update any future memos to include the above items, thereby communicating in a language we can ALL understand.
Thank you for your interest,
