cruciating," he says. "We did
not know from day to day if
UPI was going to survive or
not. That's quite an anvil
hanging over your head when
you've got a wife and two lit-
tle babies. Still, it was the
best move we ever made."
Seven months after he ar-
rived at UPI, Freedman
became the network news
director, in what he called
"One of many political
purges" that occurred. And
for the next year, he helped
direct the complete overhaul
and upgrade of the network.
Eventually, Freedman moved
up to the position of broadcast
operations, where he con-
trolled both the UPI Radio
Network and the National
Broadcast Wire Service.
Freedman considers last
year to have been his career
high point, not just with UPI,
but overall. During a hectic
two-year period, Freedman
coordinated the research,
planning, and producing of
the major events of 1988, in-
cluding both political conven-
tions, both sets of Olympic
Games, the presidential cam-
paign, election and inaugura-
tion, and the NASA shuttle
launches.
"People work their whole
lives to do these things, and
if they get to do one of them,
they consider their careers a
success. From start to finish,
I was able to serve as the ar-
chitect for network coverage
of every major event of a
quadrennial year."
He has seen many changes
in the industry that not only
worry him, but distress him.
In 1984, the Federal Com-
munications Commission de-
regulated the broadcasting
industry, giving managers
and owners a much more
liberal hand in what kind and
amount of programming they
could put on the air. Without
a definitive broadcast news
mandate, radio stations were
allowed to reduce news com-
mitment, and in some cases,
it completely disappeared.
Freedman views radio news
as an integral part of pro-
gramming that must be
maintained. He fears that, in
the wake of deregulation,
radio news is becoming an en-
dangered species, a "dino-
saur" teetering on the edge of
extinction.
"I don't think the next
generation of radio news-
casters is being generated,"
he says. "There is no next
generation right now. Dereg-
ulation virtually eliminated
the farm system. You don't
have the training grounds for
young people anymore. The
people getting out of school
don't want to go to the small
markets anymore." Ei
