SCOOP APRIL 1 The ACMA will this morning issue a press release announcing that commercial radio stations are and have been in breach of their licensing conditions if they provide automated programming including where the air shift is networked from a sister station or interstate source. All shifts including mid-dawns are going to have to an announcer live to air with stations having a minimum number of 6 daytime jocks. The move will send shockwaves across the industry and station bean counters to the drycleaners. Our source for this item was Issie Joshing.
