COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS has announced SCRIPPS NETWORKS Interactive CEO KEN LOWE as the keynote speaker for COUNTRY RADIO SEMINAR 2011, to be held MARCH 2nd through 4th in NASHVILLE.
Since 2008 LOWE has served as President, Chairman and CEO of lifestyle media group SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE. The company comprises GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY (GAC), HGTV, FOOD NETWORK, DIY NETWORK, TRAVEL CHANNEL and COOKING CHANNEL.
LOWE said: “It’s no coincidence that a lot of folks who had a hand in the development of cable networks came out of radio. They had a better understanding of a more niche type of programming. Radio was truly that, whereas in broadcasting, so much of a local station's content came from the network. Radio folks tended to be more hands-on and more promotion and marketing driven.”
CRB Execc. Dir. BILL MAYNE said: “KEN LOWE brings an amazing perspective on the innovation, leadership, product development, marketing, risk taking and accountability it takes to build great companies in today's new media marketplace.”
