Where Art & Commerce Meet: Turning Up Radio's Profitability Volume To 11

Programing Your Station On Another Level
This will be one of those memorable learning sessions that will make your head spin as The Science Behind The Sound: "Programming The Intangibles" explores the cutting edge of programming and throws into question everything you've considered as accepted practice to build ratings and your brand.
Radio is a mix of art and science. For 2015 and beyond, is the science side of the equation as important as it once was? Given the abundance of choices, does it really matter whether a programmer schedules song “A” in front of song "B" anymore?
Couldn't that time be better spent on developing relevant, creative curation of content? Sourcing and coaching new talent? Setting moods, generating surprises and providing life's soundtracks (all of the subjective qualities that separate radio from the algorithmic science that runs pure-plays). Are we researching the product to death?
Is our quest for people-meter dominance impeding our ability to create engaging, unique and interactive radio stations? Our panel of programming experts will share their knowledge on these and other subjects in a no-holds barred discussion, on THURSDAY, APRIL 23rd, 4:45–5:45p
MODERATED BY: PAT PAXTON, Pres./Programming, ENTERCOM
- JOHN DICKEY, EVP/Content & Programming, CUMULUS MEDIA
- GREG SOLK, SVPP, HUBBARD BROADCASTING
- ROB CRESSMAN, OM, iHEARTMEDIA/INDIANAPOLIS
- MANUEL SANGUINETTI, PD, RADIO DOBLE NUEVE, PERU
