One of the things I’ve been pushing for at work is to start podcasting our news. Not that people can’t get local news some other way, but I thought it would be nice to try being really progressive.
In discussions with the suits who run the station, the idea of podcasting other shows came up, most notably, American Idol. Now, Fremantle’s contract is air-tight (and, to be honest, scary), so we didn’t think we’d be able to do it. Still, it can’t hurt to ask, right?
So up the ladder it went.
Here’s the e-mail I received from the GM of the station:
But, I think it caused them to pause for thought. I have a feeling they’ll be working on that idea for future consideration.
A number of people have pointed out that they’re stealing my idea, but I’ve chosen to look at it differently: that I, humble FOX affiliate employee, have potentially managed to change the entire FOX Network.
