As we get ready to enter month 5 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in the U.S. we have experienced a lot of “New Normal” in our everyday lives.
Paramount, of course, is everyone’s health. Daily we hear of rising cases, more deaths, overburdened hospitals, and front-line healthcare workers, who are also not immune to the virus they work with daily.
Perhaps your work has changed. A lot of us started, for the first time, working from home. A lot of us were also laid off or furloughed. All of a sudden, the new normal was setting in, and we’re all just starting to realize that a lot of this normal is probably here to stay.
As radio station corporations around the world struggle to keep staff on and off the air due to the economic fallout of the pandemic, Boss Boss Radio and our family of stations continue to provide live programming around the clock for our listeners, and the new normal is really a lot of the same normal we’ve been operating with since our inception.
When the pandemic hit earlier this year, many radio companies either laid off their air staff or scrambled to get them set up in their own homes to continue broadcasting. Back in 2012, we invented decentralized programming on a fulltime basis for radio and we continue to bring you talented personalities from around the world every day. Back then, it was a bit more difficult to bring you shows 24/7 from anywhere on the globe than it is today, where all we need is a hot spot and a microphone to bring you The Boss.
Over the years, we’ve heard broadcasts from Bob Ray from South America, Vietnam, Memphis, and from cruise ships around the world. Imagine that shipboard wi-fi bill! And daily, our Boss Jocks continue to entertain you safely from their studios where ever they call home.
John Van Camp has brought you the Big Boss Show from Las Vegas and the NAB convention as well as San Francisco for the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame presentations, and even from beautiful Lake Tahoe before we were on KTHO!
And we’ll continue to offer up excellence in everything we do on and off the air, and when the world opens back up, we hope to be out and about, bringing you entertainment and information from all points of the world.
