Jacobs Media's Techsurvey11
JACOBS MEDIA'S TECHSURVEY11 is one of the most anticipated highlights of WORLDWIDE RADIO SUMMIT 2015, APRIL 22nd-24th, presented by ALL ACCESS and A&R WORLDWIDE!
JACOBS MEDIA Pres. FRED JACOBS will share the first exclusive reveal of data from radio's largest annual multi-format survey, JACOBS MEDIA'S TECHSURVEY11, at noon THURSDAY, APRIL 23rd at the HOTEL ROOSEVELT, HOLLYWOOD, CA.
Where Art & Commerce Meet: Turning Up Radio's Profitability Volume To 11
The session will identify unique opportunities for programming and sales management to leverage radio’s secret sauce -– unique programing and on-air talent. ERICA has brought in top names from radio management and programming to assess how both disciplines unlock revenue opportunities together.
Look who is joining ERICA on THURSDAY, APRIL 23rd at 10:45a:
- MIKE McVAY – SVP/Programming, CUMULUS MEDIA
- RICK CUMMINGS – Pres./Programming, EMMIS
- GEORGE COOK – Dir./Operations KKDA & KRNB/DALLAS
- MIKE FITZPATRICK -- 3MMM Content Dir./Head Of Triple M Network
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

Ellen K, Bubba The Love Sponge, Fred & Angi On The Air Talent Session
