It is official, Three Eagles is flipping the Blaze to News/Talk. Here is the email from inside the Mankato Three Eagles Building:
As you know we are changing format on The Blaze at 11am Monday. We have many passionate listens to that station who will be disappointed in the change. This can sometimes cause nice people to do nasty things. I am expecting phone calls, e-mails and possibly station visits. Therefore here are a few rules to follow:
1. You are not authorized to speak to the press. If contacted let them know that you cannot comment and direct them to me. Any quotes or comments from you in the press, blogs etc, will lead to your immediate dismissal from Three Eagles.
2. When listeners call, direct them to the Blaze listener line where they will be directed to leave their comments.(Iíll have the number for you Monday morning)
3. You are not allowed to give out my e-mail addressís, Or anyone elseís for that matter. Just say,ďIím sorry Iím not allowed to give out that information.
4. If someone comes into the station and you feel threatened, page the name ďRolland Johnson to the front deskĒ and we will come up to help.
5. Do not open any packages or letters without my approval.
6. If I am not here and you feel threatened in anyway call ď911Ē Itís better to be safe than sorry.
Iím sure everything will be fine, but itís better to have a plan just in case.
Also, we should all be excited that we are launching a new station! News, Talk and Sports will be a fun format.
