Complaint Review: WRBS Shine FM 95.1 - Baltimore Maryland
WRBS Shine FM 95.1 TERRIBLE AD INVESTMENT, LOCKED INTO HORRIBLE TIME SLOT, NO RETURN EMAILS FROM MANAGER Baltimore Maryland
FIRST, I was SOLD a bill of goods! The presentation given by the salesperson was wonderful and the numbers looked good. I signed a contract which is the only way you can advertise with this station. I advertised through the Summer of 2014.
My commercial was awesome however I made my salesperson aware the first week that I was nervouse about the time slot. Saturdays from 10-3...3 spots. I felt as if no one listened to Christian Radio during this time.
"Oh, no...we have LOTS of listeners..you will do fine...give it some time". The second week into it I expressed concerns because I had not received one phone call nor any additional clicks on my website. (I have a form for buyers/sellers to fill-out if intersted in my services).
Several months went by....NO CALLS....NOT one person filled out my form to search for a home...sell a home...inquire about a home...NOTHING....My intuitions became reality. This was a lousy time slot and I paid full price for it. I was scammed from the beginning and felt cheated. I asked that the commercials immediately end however I was under contract. I stopped paying at this point. Then I received the endless emails..."Your account is pass due"
Once my contract ended the Salesperson was either fired or left the company and I received a letter from the General Manager Steve Lawhon demanding payment.
This was my letter to him:
