Corey Deitz: Long-Time Radio Guy

Corey Deitz has a popular morning show on 100.3 The Edge (KDJE) in Little Rock, Arkansas, and has worked for several years in radio all over the country, including WRVQ (Q94) in Richmond, Virginia, where his show was one of the first "zoo" formats in the country; WFYR in Chicago; WLTF in Cleveland with the "Corey, Jay and Desiree" show, and where he also worked for a "moronic" program director; and KLOU in St. Louis, where he had a "psycho" program director and did the morning show because John Records Landecker rejected that gig. He talks about how radio used to be fun, how deregulation and consolidation affected the radio business, why he got fired despite being successful, what makes a successful radio show, how 9/11 affected radio, why he and Jay Hamilton redid their show, how people responded to him in Little Rock, what he thinks about larger markets vs smaller markets, and more. He's also written several books, created jokes for Comfax and Dialogue joke service in Toledo, Ohio, and writes the About Radio website.
