PARAGON CONSULTING NETWORK has named two radio groups as winners of its "Radio Stimulus Package." RADIOJONES LLC, owner of a cluster of stations in southeast GEORGIA, and NEW HAMPSHIRE PUBLIC RADIO, a statewide public radio network that covers seven markets. were selected from a field of 27 entrants. The winning companies are now receiving free consulting services from the multi-platform media consultants within the PARAGON CONSULTING NETWORK.
"All of the entrants are on intelligent paths to higher ground and deserving of our industry’s support," PARAGON’s MIKE HENRY said. "I wish we could have 27 winners, but we picked the two winners because they are highly committed to providing local media to their communities. Both companies have long-term multi-platform strategies and are building for the future. Essentially, we selected the situations where we felt our services would be most impactful."
"These are tough times for the industry and for the broad economy," RADIOJONES Owner DENNIS JONES said. "We believe that with PARAGON’s help, we can gain significant ground on our long-term strategic plans and parlay these fabulous free consulting services at just the right time -- when the industry and general market are poised for above-average growth as we come out of this downturn during the second half of this year."
Both companies have agreed to share the consulting process and relatable activities to the industry as a whole. The industry can follow updates on the activity at www.radiostimuluspackage.com.
