The answer is "mu". The question is broken.
Why do you still beat your wife? Why do Slashdotters hate (country they live in)? Why does the porridge bird lay its eggs in the air?
Why isn't anyone calling for boycotts of LG? Samsung? Has anybody sent radio reporters to THEIR factories?
P25 also had its issues, like not all radios use the same CODECs (I'm looking at YOU, Motorola), all digital voice codecs do badly in the presence of lots of noise (next to a fire engine pumping hard, in a K9 cop car with the dog excited, sirens blaring, low-air-pressure warning going off inside the resipirator). Also from what i hear, I believe the encryption has been cracked.
Not a panacea, P25.
Yet another reason I'm happy with PagePlus http://www.pagepluscellular.com/ ! Mobile Virtual Network Operators FTW!
Depends on the size of the place.
Of course, engineering gets stuck with it at first because < cynical broadcast engineer mode > we are the only ones who can actually deal with physical reality </>... A separate IT department doesn't really start to make a lot of sense until you have radio AND TV who already have separate engineering groups with different takes on IT. CBS in SF has a separate IT group (run by a former radio CE) but that's with like 3 TVs and 4 FMs in the same building.
If your station is the hub for all 5, well, maybe but I think it might be a hard sell to the pointy-hairs / showbiz-money types. Maybe better off re-org'ing engineering with a separate IT subgroup and breaking out its expenses and tasks sepatately for the time being.

If Wolfe & Homestead is the middle of nowhere, then I am Marie of Romania. HP has been there since the '60s.. It'll be replacing one suburban office park with another, nicer-sounding one.
You had a box?! and a glacier... luxury.
Can I patent crowdsourcing Big Brother? Is it possible to trademark that phrase, "Crowdsourcing Big Brother"? Service-mark it?
