Revenue, Audience & Digital That Makes Money

These are the three things that can make the biggest difference to radio in a difficult year.

In a week and a half we will be having a conversation about these issues in Philadelphia.

Changing the way we engage audiences as Millennials now make up the entire 18-34 year old demographic and yet there are still 70 million Baby Boomers and 45 million Gen Xers to consider.

Growing on-air revenue in an era of large companies driving rates down with bonuses and by selling across their platforms.

Making money from digital which is now not just an option but mandatory and yet few stations derive significant revenue from digital.

And doing a Millennial radio makeover to make our stations sound more inviting to a large audience that has turned to their own devices.

Driving future innovation is new thinking based on a better understanding of generational media.

Jerry Del Colliano invites you to join radio broadcasters and digital executives for a one-day interactive conference focused on leadership, responding to disruption and new content, programming and sales models.

Advanced Radio Management Program Preview

In less than two weeks, we will be having conversations in person about four of the most critical things as they relate to the future of the radio industry.

Changing the way we engage audiences – Millennials make up the entire 18-34 year old demographic and they are not responding to the way radio is doing things now.

Growing on-air revenue in tough times considering that some ad agencies are diverting up to one-third of their traditional radio budget to digital and just as large consolidators are dropping prices and using bonus spots to lower ad rates.

Making money from digital which had been an add-on to the radio business and is now becoming an essential part of radio’s survival.

And retrofitting our radio stations to be more Millennial-friendly so that these critical audiences can know radio is now talking to them.

Driving the future innovation necessary to meet these challenges is a new approach that involves a better understanding of generational media.

Jerry Del Colliano invites you to join radio broadcasters and digital executives for a one-day interactive conference focused on leadership, responding to disruption and new content, programming and sales models.
