The Radio Guild Review

Whether you are a broadcaster, DJ, or a producer, there are a number of benefits to becoming a member of the Radio Guild. These benefits include access to a network of other radio professionals, a minimum basic agreement, and the ability to create content that will reach your audience.

History

Originally called The Rockford Review, this was a literary magazine that published works from authors all over the world. It was produced three times a year for three years. Hundreds of submissions were received and then selected for publication. The cover of the magazine featured a traditional needlework sampler. A few of the Guild’s members contributed to the Rockford Register-Republic, and others wrote for Chicago newspapers. A number of the Guild’s members also published books of writing. It was a subscription-based magazine. There were three editions a year and membership was limited.

The Guild also produced radio plays and television shows. It produced fifteen plays by George Bernard Shaw, and Robert Sherwood’s Back to Methuselah was the first to be broadcast on the radio. Other notable authors of Guild works included William Saroyan, Maxwell Anderson, and Sidney Howard. During the 1930s, the Guild also produced a number of Shakespeare adaptations. They included Hamlet with John Gielgud, and Macbeth with Maurice Evans.

Network-Minimum Basic Agreement

Those who work in the media industry know that the Network-Minimum Basic Agreement is not the only contract on the table. Typically, agreements in this field are contracts negotiated by guilds representing writers and artists. The terms will vary from the types of compensation and benefits to the length of the working day and the amount of overtime pay.

Among other things, a collective bargaining agreement, or CBA, is a document that outlines the terms and conditions of employment. The contract will be ratified after the union members vote for it to be effective. The best part is that it will only take effect once the union has been certified as the official representative of the workers at the company. A CBA is also known as a Broadcast/Cable/Streaming News (BCSN) contract or an Online Media contract.

The Radio Guild’s CBA is not the only contract negotiated by the guild. The Guild is involved in negotiations with companies for compensation, job security, and creative rights. The union is responsible for negotiating three-year, four-year, and two-year contracts.

Agency-MBA

Founded in 1937 by a triumvirate of literary luminaries, the Radio Writers Guild (RWG) was a sister organization to the Authors League of America and the Dramatists Guild. The RWG was best known for protecting the literary rights of its members, a noble endeavor in an industry where libel and plagiarism are both endemic.

The guild has an impressive membership base and a knack for the most interesting projects. The company’s portfolio contains a plethora of media properties. The gist of it all is that the agency has a slew of contracts that cover a gamut of media, from TV to podcasts, to web series, to live events, and everything in between. The agency’s most notable acquisitions include Wiip, a joint venture between WME and Korea’s CJ ENM, and Civic Center Media, which is the brains behind WME’s signature television series, Breaking Bad. The agency has also expanded its slate to include a number of digital production studios that are home to a number of notable titles.

The Radio Writers and Media Group’s best-kept secret is the fact that the group has a plethora of bona fide movers and shakers, which has helped the agency expand its repertoire. The guild’s current roster of talent includes a few notable names, but the organization’s most impressive achievements include the naming of the competition and a new contract securing the rights to the venerable old standby, the eponymous television series. The organization’s latest signings include a new exec tasked with overseeing the production of the hit series. Among the agency’s sexiest members is a female superstar whose pedigree reads like a who’s who in the entertainment industry. The organization’s top talent has also forged new business relationships, including an announcement of a multi-year, multi-platform partnership with ABC Studios.

Production staff

During production, there are a number of different people who help get a project to the screen. Some of these people work directly with the director, while others are responsible for helping with the technical aspects of the shoot. Depending on the specific project, these people may all have similar responsibilities.

Production office coordinators are responsible for logistics and arranging hotels and vehicle rentals. They also keep track of purchase orders and make sure that the budget is being tracked properly.

Set Production Assistants are assigned to each member of the set, and are responsible for certain tasks such as grabbing coffee or moving talent in and out of the set. Other duties include holding cables and holding petty cash.

Script Coordinators are the liaison between the studio and writers. Their role includes proofing drafts, vetting scripts for continuity, and ensuring that credits paperwork is completed. Their duties may also include working on story continuity research and distribution list management.

Digital Imaging Technicians are responsible for image quality control, on-set color correction, and managing production workflow. They typically spend as much time on the set as they do in the production office. They may be confused with Data Wranglers.

Shop Stewards are on-set labor representatives. They ensure that employees are organized and that they have a safe working environment. They may also be responsible for organizing workers’ compensation benefits.

First Assistant Director is a production department member who helps the director keep the cast and crew on schedule. The director works closely with the production designer. The set decorator ensures that the set is decorated in a way that suits the needs of the project.
