“The One Thing” About Techsurvey 2024

By Fred Jacobs | April 26, 2024

Yesterday’s industry presentation of Techsurvey 2024 seemed to be the right data at the right time. But to get a sense from YOU about what stood out, I asked webinar attendees to tell me their “one thing” takeaway from the study. The response was excellent, as you’ll read in today’s post.

What Advertisers Think About AI

By Fred Jacobs | April 25, 2024

The last several issues of this AI newsletter have covered a lot of ground from AI workflow to new AI technology to audience perceptions of AI.  But none of it matters if the advertisers aren’t on board. Below is a fact-packed conversation with Corey Elliott of Borrell and Associates that gives insight into what local advertisers are thinking…

Three Stories From The Techsurvey Trenches

By Fred Jacobs | April 23, 2024

On Thursday, I have the pleasure of presenting the top-line findings of Techsurvey 2024 to the radio industry. This year, 31,800+ core listeners weighed in on media, technology, AI, and of course, their perceptions of AM/FM radio. This is our 20th survey, and perhaps one of the most revealing and actionable. In today’s post, I broke down three current media stories in the news, and integrated corresponding TS 24 data to help bring them into focus for broadcasters. At this precarious time for radio, we need numbers and findings we can rely on. Let’s try to figure it out together.

2024 Could (Should?) Be A Good Year For Radio

By Fred Jacobs | April 17, 2024

As the credits being to roll here in Las Vegas, brother Paul Jacobs – the glass-half-full-one – grabs the keyboard to find not only a bright side, but a strategy for the months ahead in what has already proved to be a challenging year. Time to turn those frowns upside-down with an inspirational guest post.

What’s Your Radio Station’s Response To AI?

By Fred Jacobs | April 16, 2024

Dateline:  The NAB in Las Vegas
The scene:  The bar in both the Encore and Wynn (you can’t tell ’em apart) is teaming with radio’s C-suite executives, hangers-on, job seekers, and a lot of tourists wondering what the fuss is all about.
The big topic:  AI, what else?

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?
