Radio Performance Legends Launch Talent Coaching

Two of the industry’s most prolific personalities will soon be available to help craft advanced skill development for people with a commitment to rise above the field.
Through the '70s, '80s and into the '90s, NAB HALL OF FAME inductee RON CHAPMAN and then-FAIRBANKS KVIL/DALLAS were synonymous with the rare air of achievement. KVIL was acclaimed "AC Station of the Year" season after season, while its revenues set records. Behind the scenes, says AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT GROUP’s managing partner TIM MOORE, was GEORGE JOHNS -- architect of FAIRBANKS’ success in DALLAS-FORT WORTH, INDIANAPOLIS, BOSTON, PHILADELPHIA and WEST PALM BEACH.
MOORE adds, "The irony of this development is its 'back-to-the-future' implication. Here are two gifted people who bring incredible stylistic techniques from the past, into today’s talent void, bereft of most of the secrets of pyrotechnic stylistic delivery, at a time when its arguably more critical than at any time over the last 30 years. RON and GEORGE’s presence in a radio environment equate to master painters or sculptors as visiting faculty at a great university. Their ability to transfer rare skill-sets to good radio talent is game-changing."
The pair have partnered with ROY LAUGHLIN, former GM of KIIS FM as well as a new player in the private equity entertainment world to negotiate and select their projects. You can contact LAUGHLIN at firstname.lastname@example.org.
