The Auto Industry To Radio: Crank It Up!

By Fred Jacobs | May 3, 2024

The “AM For Every Vehicle Act” continues to make progress in D.C., no simple task given these contentious times. But hearings earlier this week had their share of fireworks and even controversy, thanks to a “crank’ idea from the auto industry. No one said it would be easy.

Generating Content with AI

By Fred Jacobs | May 2, 2024

This week has been a rarity in the AI world, a week where there have been no major press releases, upgrades, mergers, affiliations, or PR disasters. Behind the scenes, there have been previews of upcoming things to look forward to, such as a recurring rumor about Apple both teaming with ChatGPT for upcoming iPhone releases and Microsoft releasing a…

How Are Your Ratings?

By Fred Jacobs | May 2, 2024

The loneliest job in the radio station? Hands down, it’s the PD. Everyone in the station likes to think they’re a program director – until the book comes out. And if it’s taken a tumble, the PD is likely suffering alone. Today’s #TBT post is an homage to all those radio programmers – past and present – who are cranking out multiple music logs before holiday weekends while everyone else at the station is out the door, making out those weekend schedules, and taking complaint calls from angry listeners. Hats off to the PD.

First I Look At The Purse

By Fred Jacobs | May 1, 2024

When the going gets tough, the tough find reveneue somewhere.

These days, radio’s directors of sales have to creatively divine money wherever they can – even in unconventional places.  But when you’ve got ample audience in unpopular demographics, you’d better make the best of a challenging situation. A very popular brand you all know has launched a slick media campaign unashamedlly targetting mature adults. If they’re right, there will be important lessons here for radio broadcasters.

Radio’s Game Theory

By Fred Jacobs | April 30, 2024

Playing the ratings and revenue game has become precarious for radio in 2024 – whether you work for commercial or public radio stations. In an environment where ad dollars are increasingly hard to come by and the competition seems to be expanding exponentiallly, radio organizations need innovative solutions to traditional challenges. The answer may be puzzling in more ways than one. But, of course, that’s the game we’re playing. (Click “read more” to escape from my lame puns.)

Hey Radio, Are You Ready For An NFL Bake Off?

May 21, 2024

Imagine a 4 minute playoff that would pit all 32 NFL teams against each other in head-to-head combat. Well, that happened last week – but not on any football field. Instead, every NFL team competed hard on social media to produce the funniest, cleverest, and most viral video short to highlight the 2024-25 schedule. It’s a case study in creativity, celebrity, and humor. And there are great lessons here for radio stations and their personality shows. Are you ready for the “2024 NFL Schedule Debut Bake-Off?”

Let’s Eat Somewhere Else

May 20, 2024

The restaurant business is littered with eateries that started with great promise, only to fizzle out. Kind of like radio station formats. For today’s blog, it’s a look at consumer food products and the lengths they now go to in order to stand out and grab attention – without compromising the essence of their brands. I hope that deep into my many analogies, you’ll walk away with a different way to think about the radio stations you program and market.

Pulling The Plug On A Radio Brand

May 16, 2024

What makes a legendary radio station? Is it about how many Marconi and Crystal statues it manages to snag? Is it about how much cash flowed during its lifetime? Or is it more about longevity and whether it stayed with its original format throughout its radio lifetime? That’s the topic of today’s #TBT blog post where the center of attention is a long-running radio station whose plug got pulled five years ago in 2019. You know the call letters, but can we consider this station an iconic radio brand?
