    SiriusXM will be reporting its quarterly financials this Thursday.  In my opinion the key element of this call will be expectations.  Right, wrong, or indifferent, Sirius has shifted from a “darling” when Liberty Media made an offer to bring the company under its umbrella to “questionable” ever since Liberty pulled its offer off of the table.  The reasoning is actually pretty simple.  If Liberty does not want the deal anymore what is wrong?

    Everybody wants to know what’s just over the horizon for radio. That’s why I talked with BIA/Kelsey’s Managing Director Rick Ducey about their new report, “The Internet Radio Revolution Has Arrived,” a fresh look at how platforms, services, audiences and advertisers are reinventing audio.(Lesson number one: Think “audio,” not “radio.”)“Radio has a strong future,” says Rick, “but there are challenges.”Digital will soon make up a third of media spend, Rick tells me, and for audio specifically, 21% of the overall audio…

But the play doesn’t venture much beyond the facade of its true-life model. Fierstein... Read more »

    “When it comes to mobile devices, we need to remind listeners that radio is FREE – that its use does not sap so much precious battery energy and even more precious data plan bandwidth.”So argue the folks I call the “freeks.”These are the well intentioned folks in the radio industry who believe that listeners do not have their own best interests at heart. That listeners are, as a group, a bit dull-minded. Thus, listeners must be marketed at and advertised to in order to convince them of what they surely would be better off knowing: That free radio is better than…

And, no evidence was provided that either plan to become local. The FCC said, “only local broadcasters provide programming based on the unique characteristics of their respective local markets.

  • We. Humans. Fools.

    1 Apr 2014 | 10:35 am
    It's April 1st, but this is not an April Fools joke. The truth is that we really haven't written anything for the past few months and that's not funny. We feel bad, shame on us fools. We're fools for failing and forgetting. We've been busy, but that's no excuse. However, we're also fools for being so human, so human we smile, cry, enjoy, and even laugh at GIFs like these:   I want these two in my team!   Hi girls, please play the part that says... #not   That should be more than a quadruple, right?   We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did, us fools. :) Happy day!
  • Everyone Does Customer Support (at Streema)

    Today we wanted to share a practice with you that we started in mid-2013 and has been doing great at Streema. First, a short story that may sound familiar... There was once a young company that wanted to grow quickly. This company learned that, to build things fast, many times it was better to just focus on as few activities as possible. And with such a focus and lean operation, there was only a small amount of resources dedicated to things like Customer Support. As a matter of fact, the Customer Support team was a very thinly stretched operation (one person, very little time) that addressed…

    If you are a frequent user of Streema.com, you may have seen brands promoted on our website. Today we want to talk about that: Advertising. Streema's business model is based on advertising, that means we develop and maintain our application, content, infrastructure and support with the sponsorship of third-party products and services. That might not surprise you, after all, most of the web works that way, a few good examples are: YouTube, Google, Facebook and most of the newspapers. And that makes sense, since the Internet is a communication medium, and media connects people with people,…
