No longer being able to tune into 99X on the airwaves is going to be a strange thing, considering the legacy of the station and the amazing things it did over the years. With the changes, a lot of people I care about lost their jobs. It sucks, but we all know that this is a ruthless business, and we deal with it as best we can. The down time between jobs is a drag, but the truth is that five years from now, we'll all be at different places in our lives, with new worries and new concerns.
I also think Bert deserves the opportunity to be on a bigger signal. He's kicked ass over the past few years, and is a perfect example of what a good radio show can do for a station if the management is willing to put in the investment and let it grow. No consultants, no micro-managing - just a group of talented people that were trusted, left alone, and allowed to do their own thing.
I will miss 99X, but change is a constant. It's not always wanted, but it's there. All you can do is keep the memories and move on with your life.
