Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business. This week, they've chosen WNIC’s “Pillow Talk” with ALAN ALMOND.
JACOBS writes, "Those of you who have been following our innovation series know that we’ve been bouncing around between today’s hot new innovations in radio broadcasting to the amazing inventions and experiments from the past that turned out to be highly successful.
"Some of our innovations and the people behind them are familiar to you, but hopefully, there’s been a surprise or two along the way. I’m thinking that this week’s 'Radio’s Most Innovative' honoree, WNIC’s 'Pillow Talk' evening show starring ALAN ALMOND is one that many people don’t know about. And because it’s VALENTINE’S DAY weekend, it is only appropriate to shine the innovation light on one of the most romantic, intimate radio shows of all time.
"But Pillow Talk wasn’t just about love songs and candlelight. It is a great object lesson in risk-taking, boldness, trust, serendipity, teamwork, and what has always made radio a special medium: theater of the mind."
