WHO ARE WE
Because we are an independent broadcast media radio service, the perception could be that we are all the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. The editorial material to be aired on our media services is prepared independently from other media outlets. We may express a "difference of opinion" or "very different editorial philosophies" regarding our news reporting from other competing news staff. This allows us to be a separate voice in the community. Thus, because of our different editorial philosophies, we may operate under a JOA (Joint Operating Agreement), which is a U.S. Justice Department approved method of maintaining competitive distinct voices in radio markets.
