I used to work at MBS Radio. I left the company primarily because I got tired of working for a company that didn’t seem to care one iota about the people who worked for it. For the most part, I enjoyed working with the people I worked with. But the company itself drove me (as it had countless others) away.
Anyway, I was made aware that the Charlottetown stations (CFCY and Magic93) are looking for a new producer, and that their online advertisement was rather, um, unique?
Here it is, in part:
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Some say that primates are a gene or two short from
being human … so we could actually hire a monkey as a producer, but we’re
looking for more than a button pusher … we want someone with that special touch,
a magical touch when it comes to producing commercials and station
imaging. A producer
who understands the entire process of production from client expectations to
“we could actually hire a monkey”. Is this really supposed to entice a potential producer to come and work there? Anyway, perhaps it’s just sour-grapes on my part, but this made me laugh.
At any rate, I see a potential sitcom for Bolo, the Monkey President.
