Where Are Your Stars, Radio?

“Inspired.” “An engaging read.” The critics gushed over the new book by Robert Galbraith. Imagine the author’s disappointment, then, when after three months, his book had sold only 1,500 hardcover copies. Until one day. That was the day the book shot from #4,709 on Amazon’s bestseller list to #1. What happened to make this dog into a […]

Hey Radio, What Happens Next?

I heard a story recently from a Buzzfeed exec. As part of their never-ending experimentation with new platforms – and as part of their desire to play a joke on the boss – they filled the boss’s office with goats and hay while the boss was temporarily away at a meeting. What would happen when […]

What Podcasting Can’t Do

Is podcasting the hot new thing? Maybe. But it is not the hot everything, not even when it comes to audio. Look at Facebook, a platform that was driven primarily by text until recently, when it became driven primarily by images and later by video. Now the big news is that Facebook is pivoting towards […]

It’s Time For Rush Limbaugh To Go

Rush Limbaugh’s contract is up and it’s decision time – not only for Rush but for the industry which awakens to a 2016 where, for better or worse, Rush is the most famous name in radio. And it’s time for Rush Limbaugh to go. Now this is nothing personal. Rush has had an amazing symbiotic […]

Your Audio Does Not Want to Go Viral

Everybody wants to go viral. It’s as if your little corner of fame or infamy is not complete unless you have some tidbit of content achieving the kind of exponential exposure that used to require things like, say, TV or radio. The same goes for those who create audio content and post it online with all […]

Radio Social Media Managers Are Near Tears

Yesterday I published a post that detailed how the typical radio station’s Facebook strategy is, at best, off-base, and at worst, non-existent. To coin a phrase, that post “went viral” and generated a bunch of response, most of which came privately (such is the fear of consequences in the radio industry). I’m going to share some of […]
