On JACOBS MEDIA's JACOBLOG, EMMIS COMMUNICATIONS Chairman/CEO JEFF SMULYAN talks with FRED JACOBS about his pet project -- NEXTRADIO. JACOBS writes SMULYAN, "has tirelessly led the charge to build awareness and acceptance of NEXTRADIO. In the form of an ANDROID app, the NEXTRADIO technology contains interactive technology that includes features, information, and data that could change the face of radio broadcasting."
JACOBS continues, "JEFF never misses an opportunity to tell NEXTRADIO’s story. At the CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK CONFERENCE in TORONTO in 2014, I bumped into JEFF and the CEO of the CONSUMER TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATION (nee CONSUMER ELECTRONICS ASSOCIATION), GARY SHAPIRO, in the lobby of our hotel. JEFF immediately pulled out several devices to show off NEXTRADIO technology to GARY -- a guy who truly personifies innovation. The next morning, GARY gave JEFF and NEXTRADIO a shout-out at his keynote."
"JEFF continues to work hard to tell the NEXTRADIO story," continues JACOBS, "part of which is his quest to help make radio cool again. In this installment of 'The Guest List,' JEFF explains 'The 5 Things Every Radio Professional Should Know About NEXTRADIO.'” Read it here.
