I noticed you didn't really dwell on this issue today, though I don't know how you were able to get through the hour without dwelling on it. Proud of you for that. I love your show, Jenny.. I look forward to it every day. It's too quick, that's my only complaint. Anwyay, I'm wondering who you're going to get to replace Sean? Will Sirius just give you someone? Will you have a choice? I was trying to think myself of someone to replace him.. I'm not sure. I thought "what about Shuli", from Howard's show? He's funny, insightful, and might be fun for you. Not sure of his skill set , but I do know that he also does Jay Thomas' show, and possibly others. Meaning maybe he would be available.... But other than him, I don't know of anyone. Not that you're looking to ME to help you .. you certainly don't need that.
But I want you to know I certainly took notice of the disrespect you're getting. I think it's because you're just too nice. You know, you're kind of bubbly, gregarious, etc.. people may perceive that they can take advantage of you, and you'll just "go along". After all, look what you've been through so far with MSO. They assume you'll take anything, and survive. It's wrong. It pisses me off. Anyway, that's my 2 cents. I know you'll be ok.. you always are.. but it sucks that you have to go through yet another set back.
Love ya, Jenny...
Terri: Thank you for your lovely words. I appreciate the good cheer and the understanding that I move forward through all of the changes. I am viewing this as yet another opportunity. I don't feel disrespected, rather I feel inconvenienced! But isn't everyone inconvenienced some of the time?
I love Shuli! But he is spoken for all over the place. Sirius Xm will find someone who fits. And should that person leave then we will find another!
People bounce around in radio engineering. I get it. It was just a little jolting to hear about it 3 minutes before today's show.
And EVERYONE knows I am the emotional kind. So yeah, was hard for me to not dwell on it in a way... and in another way so easy because the Trayvon Martin death is so abhorrent I can't stop dwelling (rightfully so!) on that!
But you have no idea how much your seeing who I am and totally getting my "wink and a nudge" snarkiness with Sean matters to me. He and I get along great! And I am excited for him to move up his own darn food chain.From Rose: Sorry to hear Shawn is leaving the show but were you REALLY SURPRISED? I mean, you went on a rant about how you wouldn't have involved him in the show if you knew, but you hardly let him talk! It won't make a difference who your assistant is, we'll hardly ever hear him/her over you if you keep this format. I've heard him on the other show and Shawn is great. Patrick lets him talk and is very polite,... if/when he interrupts, he apologizes and gives the person a chance to speak. For Shawn, moving to the other show is the obvious better choice regardless of compensation. I like your show but am finding it more and more difficult to listen. I support you and wish you will take this as learning point. Please take this opportunity to make improvements and progress. Take it as constructive criticism, pull the camera back on YOURSELF. Don't blame the "higher ups" as you put it... they did this for a reason, figure it out and fix it. If you're overlooked then make sure you are the spotlight by IMPROVING your show, keeping and getting more listeners. THANK YOU ROSE! I will figure this out. Of course. Today was the day I heard Sean's leaving was a probability. Hadn't known before. Now I will deal with it. In terms of Radio Sean Ryan's role on the show (and I'm certain he'd attest to the same)- He was hired to run the board, assist in show prep and be on air when we deemed it appropriate. I've loved his contributions. I've never had an "assistant" and I'm pretty sure Sirius Xm won't be hiring one for me. But yes, I will be afforded another board op who I hope will involve himself with show content and me as well! I wish Radio Sean Ryan only a prosperous and long term career in whatever field he wants! And I believe he wants the same for me. Thank you for your feedback! xo jenny
