Somehow I thought since this is a site for management and marketing professionals I'd find less bashing than on the other radio sites. I was wrong. Good luck with that. I'm out!

The Peter Principle is a belief that, in an organization where promotion is based on achievement, success, and merit, that organization's members will eventually be promoted beyond their level of ability. The principle is commonly phrased, "employees tend to rise to their level of incompetence." In more formal parlance, the effect could be stated as: employees tend to be given more authority until they cannot continue to work competently. It was formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in 1969. Scott Welsh is one of the last remaining examples of this principle. Period.

I have read the comments on both Bpb and Scott, and they are very precise. Bob is a real salesman, whereas Scott simply isn't; he talks, talks, and talks, without stopping that he kills the sale--call the current sales staff how many of them would rather not take to a meeting with a client. Time will prove what everyone else has stated here, and I'm sure it won't be very long...

I worked with Scott Welsh from 1993-1998. The negative remarks I'm reading about him do not describe the guy I worked with during those five years.

Fred: If you're so sure of the inaccuracy of everyone else's statements, then I propose you the following. Being the successful radio guy you are, you could easily quit where you're working and go apply at KGGI---a successful guy like you shouldn't have any problems building up a solid and profitable account list, while at the same time, having the honor of working with Scott Welsh; then, you can return and tell us how inaccurate our statements are....

I worked at Clear Channel Riverside, with Bob Ridzak and Scott Welsh. I left on my own because of this guy, Scott Welsh. If you don't know the guy then, don't comment. Everything that describes Scott Welsh as a terrible sales person and manager is true, as I know it first hand (No one told me about it) Can you tell everyone when did you actually work for Scott, and where are you currently working that you're so successful to dare deny other people's real experiences???
