LISTENER DRIVEN RADIO has hired GABE HOBBS to be a Strategic Advisor. HOBBS will advise LDR on the long-term development of LDR.TopicPulse, a new system that offers real-time social media topic tracking, so News/Talk stations can see what local audiences are talking about up to the second.
HOBBS, a 35-year radio veteran, has been responsible for the programming oversight of CLEAR CHANNEL’s 275 News, Talk and Sports-formatted stations, served as a consultant for PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS, and worked on the launch of FOX SPORTS RADIO.
"GABE HOBBS is one of the most-respected names in the industry when it comes to News/Talk programming," LDR CEO DANIEL ANSTANDIG said. "His vision and insights are key in achieving success with our systems for spoken word radio."
"LDR's team is the finest group of interactive innovators in the country," GABE HOBBS noted. "I'm proud to join the team to translate the success LDR is having at music radio to the News/Talk/Sports formats."
