    This is one of my favorite Q&A’s from this year’s hivio audio future festival. Content marketing is one of the hottest new trends among brands worldwide, and the audio space is primed to excel in this area because audio media companies have been creating content for decades. So how can audio media companies leverage their own content across platforms and help brands embrace this trend? Robert Rose is Chief Strategist for the Content Marketing Institute.

  • Surprise! Radio Disney Doesn’t Need Radio!

    15 Aug 2014 | 5:43 pm
    So Disney sells of all of its Radio Disney station assets – 23 AM and 1 FM –  save for its LA flagship, which is evidently a content creation hub and not simply a means of distribution. …and the radio industry goes wild! What does this mean? What is Disney signaling? Does this even matter? These are the questions that were on everyone’s lips last week. But to me, the larger question is this: How come this took so long? Does anyone think Disney chief Bob Iger awakened one bright day in the summer of 2014 to discover that his army of primarily AM radio distribution…
  • Chevrolet’s Plan for Built-In Wi-Fi In Your Car

    mramsey1@ix.netcom.com (Mark Ramsey)
    13 Aug 2014 | 12:58 pm
    There’s a tendency for some broadcasters to put too much faith in the idea that consumers will prefer traditional radio over the online variety because of scarce and expensive bandwidth. But the reality is that bandwidth is neither that scarce nor that expensive, when compared to the value derived from it. And one way to circumvent the limitations of your mobile phone’s bandwidth altogether is to access the net from another hotspot. Like, say, your car. That’s exactly Chevrolet’s plan. It’s already on display in the 2015 Malibu and Impala, and it’s coming…

  • A Remarkable Conversation with Glenn Beck

    If you are a regular watcher of CNN’s Reliable Sources, then last weekend you saw the first part of a remarkable interview with the equally remarkable Glenn Beck. Always a great talent and once a polarizing lightning rod for controversy, Glenn reveals new layers of thoughtful complexity and a humanity that will surprise those who know him best from his Fox News days. I thought it was quite striking. Watch for yourself and see if you don’t agree. One of the great challenges of commercial spoken word radio is that audiences and broadcasters alike are pigeonholing the format as the…

    News around the US radio industry over the past week included Disney’s announcement that it will shut down operations at 23 of its 24 Radio Disney stations and concentrate on digital distribution platforms for the Radio Disney format. Partnerships with Slacker and Aha Radio – two streaming platforms, as well as Sirius XM satellite are the preferred partners mentioned in the announcement, and I suspect direct distribution will remain part of the formula as well. As if to echo and underline that sentiment, on Friday the RAB released a 2Q Revenue Report that reflects a 3% drop in…

  • Liberty Media Now Controls 56% of SiriusXM

    Spencer Osborne
    7 Aug 2014 | 5:49 am
    The ownership of Liberty Media in SiriusXM has been able to increase even while the company sold shares back to SiriusXM.  This happened because SiriusXM is in the midst of a share buyback program that has the company buying up shares in both the open market as well as private agreements.  SiriusXM’s stock has been in a funk ever since early this year when Liberty floated a buyout offer that the media giant ultimately pulled off of the table.  Previously Liberty Media ownership in SiriusXM was at the 53% level. If Liberty Media does not participate in the $2 billion in share buybacks…
  • July Auto Sales Strong, But Below Expectations

    Spencer Osborne
    4 Aug 2014 | 6:14 am
    The headlines for auto sales in July of 2014 will read in a disappointing fashion, but the reality is that overall we saw a 9% gain over last year.  Expectations were for a gain of about 11%, which is why the street seems to feel that the sales in July were a miss.  The industry sold almost 1.43 million cars in the month, and July was actually about 11,000 units better than June. For satellite radio, the numbers for July were very positive.  The mid summer action in the new car channel has been a big boost in seeing the installation of more radios than we have seen in years.  If SiriusXM…

Born and raised in the sunshine state of Florida, Karegan credits her country spunk to inspirations like Kelly Clarkson, Paramour, and Cassadee Pope.

    Introducing HOSTS, the forthright pseudonym of Miles Patzer. The Nashville-based Milwaukee transplant is a singer/songwriter capable of evoking levels of emotion through his bare-bone sets that leave his listeners in an unfathomable state of introspection. Upon first listen, the candor and somber disposition of HOSTS' debut album, Hearttaker, conveys a seemingly bleak outlook, but upon further examination, Patzer asserts that even in an utter moment of destruction and sadness, there's literally nothing you ever have to worry about again. Patzer is unabashed in recounting episodes of animosity…
