As a aspiring radio show host, I know there are going to be a lot of interviews that will be start up interviews. When I say start up I mean D list and C List celebrities. This is all practice for when it is time for you to expand and become bigger. This is an online radio show which is a common format now for many people that want to start their own careers in radio. If you have a following then you can get some interviews. This was totally wrong. Just like in a retail environment, we say the customer is always right-in radio you have to learn to let some stuff go or stop it from escalating. True. This is perfect for viral-bility. I am sure many of us that never heard of this show will probably watch it now and it will get plenty of traffic for the next few days. Is this how you want to come up though? This is how this could have been avoided.
The other host on the show could feel the it when it was getting intense. Spears made it clear he was wasted and that is when it should have been cut short. The host who started to fight spears should have walked away. Although spears may not be too famous now, with a little research we all know that he is not a easy person to interview at all. I think he could have a attitude towards the industry in general and it shows in almost all his interviews. This could have been avoided. We can only hope to see if we will see some apologies in the next few days.
Side note: don’t ever start the light skin verse dark skin comments with nobody. That is a long standing embedded feud that will always get your ass kicked.
