dc.description.abstractTransformational leadership theory has found wide acceptance and use since its introduction by Bernard M. Bass in 1985. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire {Form Sx) was administered to full-time announcers at 13 radio stations in West Texas. Results showed that the managers in the sample were rated higher on transformational leadership factors than on transactional factors. In addition, transformational more than transactional leadership factors were found to be strongly related to measures of organizational commitment, perceptions of leader effectiveness, satisfaction with leadership, and extra effort. Finally, announcers at the top five rated stations not only reported higher transformational leadership scores, but also higher commitment, effectiveness, satisfaction, and extra effort scores than did the rest of the sample.
