New testing platform taking shape

The new method of testing completely shields you from bad stuff unless you make a deliberate choice to be unprotected

Let’s say you decided to be in charge of “Full Service” radio stations – stations (mostly AM) that don’t carry syndicated programming other than top of the hour news. You’ll see a list of stations due for a test, including a screen shot of what the home page looks like. The radio station never sees you, Google isn’t tracking you – it’s just a picture. Along with the title, description, keywords and relevant snippets, in most cases you can confirm that it is the right page matching the station and the format is correct – just from the information in front of you.


In this example, it is pretty clearly the correct station. Is it really a local talk station or might the program schedule point to Beck/Limbaugh/Hannity/Savage? The lack of their faces and names suggests this is just local, but the link is there to open up the program schedule to see if you choose to look. Since you are seeing a picture of the real web site, it’s unlikely the schedule page is controlled by hackers from Bulgaria.

Brian is currently covering Christian Contemporary Music, Christian Rock and Spanish Christian music. That leaves lots of obvious genres people might want to take charge of – Classical Music, Jazz, Sports talk, NPR are some obvious choices.

So who would like to give it a try? You’re not doing this to help me, you’re doing it for you. If you’re not interested, that’s OK. My guess is this is a commitment of an hour a month to manage one of the smaller genres. Just Do It.
