What are Scott Paulsen’s thoughts on the former “MAN Station”? “R.I.P. and good riddance,” he told fellow Observer-Reporter writer Terry Hazlett. Paulsen says he’s been trying to create a “creative and popular” afternoon program for about seven years but has been hampered by several factors including management and his own doing that he couldn’t really make that happen. He also admits that the creativity has been all but taken out of music radio, but it is flourishing in talk radio which he’s been attracted to since the mid-90s.

He has learned something after the situation with the former WTZN. “I’m in no hurry,” he tells the O-R, “If there’s anything I learned during the last fiasco, it was to look extremely carefully before you leap, and to, above all, take everything a corporate radio executive tells you with a huge grain of salt.”
