What's Really Going On?

As many of you know, I began as a print reporter down south with "The Los Angeles Sentinel", a black weekly in South Central and started my professional career here with "The Bakersfield Californian". So I could not have been happier when "The Suits" here hit me up about writing a blog.

My goal: to write twice maybe three times a week delving deeper into issues talked about on the show or reaching out to subjects that, for whatever reason, we didn't tackle on the broadcast. In the meantime, if you have topic ideas or want to comment on past blogs feel free to contact me at the website or via e mail at ralphbailey@kernradio.com.

Just Had to Say ... Thank You

In the wake of a very Happy Thanksgiving it’s great to get back to work and to be able to stop and say THANK YOU to the greatest listening audience in radio and the best sales staff in the business. The last nine months and the transition to American General Media have been the scariest conversion of my life. Would my sponsors come with me? Would my audience follow me and can we build an audience where there was none?

Many folks, even those close to me, thought I was nuts to give up all that I had at the other place…ratings, an FM simulcast and an audience I personally built up from nothing over nine long years! But after feeling taken for granted, underpaid and unappreciated I was welcomed here with open arms by the staff and all my fears were quickly laid to rest. We, or I should say I, never imagined the kind of early success we have enjoyed here and after the New Year we should have some more solid numbers that should give us a better idea where we are.

But after my mother asked me what I was thankful for I realized it was you all! You people have stood by me during my personal foibles, trials and tribulations, failed relationships, illnesses and changing stations and I could not be more grateful. As I redundantly state it is a heavy head that wears the crown of a “TRBS” listener. I ask you to not only listen but be my personal PR agents by spreading the word to friends and foes alike patronize our sponsors and remind businesses where you heard about them.

So if you’ve never tuned in to “TRBS” and you’re looking for insightful political analysis or deep insight on today’s societal ills or the GOP talking points, then DON”T tune me in!!!!

 “The Ralph Bailey Show” is about entertainment, information, fun and a little more entertainment. I’m here to make you smile but most importantly make you think. I’m not paid to be a genius. I’m paid to be the master of the obvious and to remind you as to what’s really going on in our community. Thank you, again, for your seemingly undying support and here’s to 2014, the year we put “TRBS” firmly and forever  BACK on top of the local radio heap!

How gracious of you Ralph. You are a jewel to radio media; once in the rough and now shinning brightly. I do enjoy your show.
