ALL ACCESS & A&R WORLDWIDE really feel honored to have had so many wonderful delegates and speakers from across the U.S. and around the world attend our WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2014 last week. And we sincerely thank you. Two of those speakers were jacAPPS Pres. PAUL JACOBS and EMMIS Pres./Programming RICK CUMMINGS.
ALL ACCESS President & Publisher JOEL DENVER noted, "In checking out the JACOBS MEDIA BLOG this morning, the title "No Shortcuts To Success" rings true as it has taken four years of hard work to get #WWRS2014 to the level of success it enjoyed, with your support this year.
"But this is not about #WWRS2014 -- this is about NEXTRADIO -- and the hard work that EMMIS CEO JEFF SMULYAN, SVP/CTO PAUL BRENNER, RICK CUMMINGS, VP/Programming JIMMY STEAL and their staffs have put into this venture -- not for personal gain, but for the gain of the entire radio industry.
"Yes, there are growing pains, and challenges to be met and overcome in terms of spreading this great technology to other devices and carriers beyond SPRINT, VIRGIN and BOOST, but I feel extremely confident that this will indeed happen.
DENVER concluded, "For this reason, I'm personally asking that all of you take a moment to read 'No Shortcuts To Success' -- and if you've not had a demo of NEXTRADIO, please do so. You'll be a believer. It really works.
"And that's why ALL ACCESS will do all it can to help spread the word about the importance of both the radio and music industries and the need to truly get behind NEXTRADIO. Please join us with your support for NEXTRADIO."
