Radio One is not For Sale

On the corporate recommendation to sell Radio One
[Original post at https://www.facebook.com/notes/sean-norling/on-the-corporate-recommendation-to-sell-radio-one/10150284177981252]
On Friday the 5th August, Radio One staff came out of a meeting with the OUSA General Manager and members of the Executive with regards to the Deloitte (international consultancy and management firm) recommendation that Radio One 91fm be sold by November 2011.

In the last month we have had a multitude of meetings and conversations with executives, industry types, members, deejays past and present and people that were generally concerned.
The recommendation to sell Radio One received over 140 written submissions, from an outstanding array of individuals, that were passed on to the decision makers.

On Friday we got the word officially - The Deloitte recommendation had been rejected. RADIO ONE IS NOT FOR SALE. RADIO ONE WILL NOT BE PRIVATISED OR DISESTABLISHED AND REMAINS OPERATING UNDER THE UMBRELLA OF THE OTAGO UNIVERSITY STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION.

Radio One and the Exec will put together a plan to "ensure greater engagement with students and increase financial performance"
We have many great plans and initiatives. These things will be achieved to ensure the longevity of our fine station without compromising the diversity and excellence of our programming.

Thanks to you all for supporting the station, the employees, the listeners and each other through this difficult and uncertain time. Without your efforts and concern, the results may have been very different.

Long Live Radio One
