TBS’s handling of the media seems to be “outdated” after Hikaru Ijuin left the radio

TBS Radio’s “Rajioto” will be ending at the end of this spring. There are rumors of a feud with the station, including allegations of power harassment…

There has always been something that has not been clear to me about the way TV and radio stations handle things. That is, “Why doesn’t the media give sufficient explanations?

TBS Radio’s morning program, “Ijuin Hikaru Torajito” (Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.), which was expected to be long-lasting, will end this spring.

This information had been in the news for some time, but at the ending of the January 11th broadcast, Hikaru Ijuin himself announced

The show will end at the end of this spring.

He announced in the same tone of voice as usual. TBS Radio’s response to the announcement was really indifferent.

According to Nikkan Sports

According to Nikkan Sports, “It’s as broadcasted,” and “We’re not answering the reason for (the program’s) termination.

Sports Hochi said

“We don’t talk about individual programs.

Sports Hochi replied, “We do not discuss individual programs.

What can be seen through these responses is, “Why do you need to answer? It’s our internal situation.

In the past, when the media such as TV and radio interviewed people about their programs, they would say, as if they had a single memory.

“We can’t talk about the programming process or the production process.

“We can’t answer questions about individual cases.

We can’t answer questions about individual cases. This is highly questionable, and I wonder if it is acceptable in this day and age.

If you think about it, “I can’t answer your questions on a case-by-case basis.

It makes no sense when you think about it. Most of the time, interviews are for individual projects.

When we go somewhere for an interview, we press the other party to “disclose information” or “lack transparency,” but when we are interviewed, we act as if we are protected by “stubborn privilege,” a misunderstanding that is very out of touch with the times!

I’m sure they have an excuse to say that when they are covering a story, it’s a corporate scandal or an economic incident, but shouldn’t a broadcasting station that uses the airwaves, the common property of the people, have more accountability than that?

“This is why we are changing the program. “This is why the program will be changed, the host will be changed.

And so on. TBS Radio’s response this time was as if it was a natural tradition not to do so.

In the broadcast, Ijuin said something that bothered me.

Ijuin said something on air that bothered me: “If I wanted to talk, I could talk for three or four hours about why I quit, but if I say too many things, I’m afraid I’ll only give the wrong impression.

“The upper management of TBS Radio suggested, ‘Ijuin-kun, why don’t you talk about something like this today? “The higher-ups at TBS Radio suggested, ‘Ijuin-kun, why don’t you talk about something like this today?’ But if I follow that suggestion, I’m no longer a radio personality, so I’ll refrain from doing that.

It’s a very ironic statement, just like him.

It’s clear from this that there was something going on between Ijuin and TBS Radio. Even if TBS Radio can’t reveal everything because of Ijuin’s intentions, at the very least, they can say, “We’re going to try to reconcile the facts.

Even if TBS Radio can’t reveal everything, they can at least say, “We’ll try to reconcile the facts and announce as much as we can.

It was an incident that made me feel again that a response of some sort is necessary in this day and age.
