WHY NOT SYNDICATION?: “How Does It Play In A World Asking For Live & Local?”

It’s been around for decades and still thrives. The #1 reason to go syndicated to save on operating costs. That shouldn’t be the only reason.

Not everyone can do it and some great local shows would make bad syndicated shows. Learn the pitfalls.

SPOKEN WORD: “Whatever Happened to Talk Radio?”

Talk remains one of the biggest radio formats, but the future is unclear. Has the format boxed itself into conservative political talk? Is podcasting the new talk radio? Is public radio the alternative talk radio? Has sports radio replaced “guy talk” radio? Is there room for less politically-oriented talk? Can AM stations find happiness reborn as streamers? Where has the audience for spoken word gravitated, and is broadcast radio up to the challenge posed by new media?

MODERATED BY: PAIGE NEINABER, President, CPR PROMOTIONS
PROMOTION & MARKETING: “Bringing Bigger Than Life Fun Back To Radio”

Live, local and interactive – those are the essential entertainment elements that broadcast radio brings to the media mix that no other content platform can duplicate.

RADIO FUTURECAST: “Brand Loyalty Still Exists, But How Our Brands Are Chosen Has Changed”

For a brand to capture new fans as well as remain relevant with its current base, it must always be in “conquest mode,” identifying opportunities to consistently create meaningful moments. Whether on-air or in the social space – there’s a new loyalty model. And it starts with the brand voice reflecting what matters to the audience. It’s no longer how our stations perform, but how the station fits and feels in their lives. We will explore takeaway daily practices to adopt and drive more value-based experiences for the audience while building on the long-term health of the brand.

The moment we’ve all waited for! Who wins the BENZTOWN IRON IMAGER BELT?

WOMEN IN RADIO: “Make Yourself (un) Comfortable”

Advertisers want us.
Our spouses and kids love us.
Our friends need us.
But our industry rarely hires us …

Hear from women who have, in the words of one, “kicked the doors down.”

The first step in making change…is listening. From consulting and coaching, to atypical on and off-air roles. We’re not just sidekicks, sales foxes, sexy voices, and giggle boxes. Women who have made their way in non-traditionally female areas of broadcasting talk about why they started, why they stayed [or left], and where they’re going next.

If you want women to listen to your station, download your podcasts, engage with your shows—you need to hear how these pros succeed. ….and we’ll also tell you what NOT to do.

MODERATED BY: STEVE REYNOLDS, President, THE REYNOLDS GROUP
AIR TALENT SESSION:  “It Happened to Me!”

One thing about we radio people – be in the business long enough and you collect some weird stories. Listeners propositioning you or making odd requests, things you did that landed you in the GM’s office within minutes, jobs you took that went south very quickly.
