Illusion of Choice

The below graphic is fascinating. It is from the United States, so it has no practical impact on Australia or New Zealand. The graphic tracks media ownership in the US from 1983 to 2011 and shows the impact of consolidation.

The graphic is from the website 'frugal dad', and you can visit their site by clicking on the image.

The duopoly of Australian radio is the worst thing to have happened to the industry.
Sure the corporations can run it cheaper, but you have fewer jocks, journos .. staff in general.
And in many cases the profits go out of the country.
Then they wonder why retailers are doing it tough, and therefore advertising is tough.
It also limits your employment options if you don't like your current situation, as you may not fit the format of the alternate networks.
Let's hope the government doesn't allow even more stations to be owned by each corporation.
