NAB Accepting Applications for Leadership Programs
RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, February 9, 2016 | 10:55am CT | Share

The NAB Education Foundation (NABEF) is currently accepting applications for two leadership development programs: Broadcast Leadership Training (BLT) and the Executive Development Seminar (EDS). The BLT program is designed to prepare senior-level broadcasters to advance into ownership or executive positions. EDS provides broadcast managers and professionals with tools to increase managerial effectiveness and advance career opportunities.

Broadcast Leadership Training is a 10-month, MBA-style program that guides participants through the process of assessing, purchasing, owning and operating radio and television stations. It is taught by senior level broadcast managers, FCC staff, communications attorneys, investors and members of the banking community, as well as academic faculty from leading universities. The training begins in September with meetings one weekend a month, and fellowship opportunities are available.

Held June 17-21 at NAB headquarters, EDS teaches attendees to meet the challenges of the rapidly evolving business environment of broadcasting. Participants learn effective negotiation strategies, develop peer networks, and learn how to establish a successful managerial style. Fellowship opportunities are also available.

"Both the BLT and EDS programs provide broadcast industry professionals with the knowledge and tools necessary to further enhance their skillsets," said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. "The information obtained and connections made provide a more direct path to professional career advancement for participants."

Applications for BLT are being accepted until Tuesday, May 31. Early bird registration for EDS ends Tuesday, May 31 and regular registration runs until Thursday, June 30.


Study: Radio Increasing Focus on Digital Sales
RADIO ONLINE | Monday, February 8, 2016 | 3:17pm CT | Share

The radio industry grew its digital ad revenue 11.4% last year, to $550.8 million, and is poised to grow even faster this year, according to a study conducted by Borrell Associates on behalf of the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB). "Benchmarking: Local Radio Stations' Online Revenues," the 4th annual benchmarking report, showed that the average market cluster made $951,756 in digital sales last year, with the average station making $231,210. With forecast growth of 14%, the report said, digital advertising will account for 6.5% of station revenue by the end of 2016, a full point above what it was in 2015.

"All signs point to the radio industry mobilizing even more in the interactive space," said Borrell Associates CEO Gordon Borrell. "Eighty-two percent believe there is strong potential-the highest we've ever seen; 62% believe that their sales teams' ability to sell digital products is solid-up from 52% a year ago; and 37% believe their digital strategy is headed in the right direction-up from 27%."

"Digital continues to be radio's fastest growing sector. Stations that are laser focused on increasing revenue beyond their core broadcast business are experiencing the benefits," added RAB President/CEO Erica Farber. "The results from this study provide us with insights of where efforts are paying off and what additional training is needed for radio to continue with this trajectory. The RAB is here to help with that knowledge and training."

The research studied digital revenue for 2,704 stations and surveyed 250 managers on their attitudes toward digital ventures. It documents digital revenues, market share, sources of revenue, methods of billing, and opinions on station strategies. Among some of the findings:

  • One-third of stations surveyed believe their sales reps are talking to the wrong buyers when trying to sell digital products. Three years ago, two-thirds believed that was the case.
  • Only 16% believe that radio sales suffer because reps are forced to sell digital advertising. That's down significantly since 2014, when more than half felt that way.
  • Conversely, 24% believe that digital sales suffer because reps focus on radio advertising. Three years ago, twice as many felt that way.
  • The average radio cluster received 0.26% of all locally spent Internet advertising. There were some, however, achieving 15 times that - up to nearly 4%.


Media Monitors Issues NH Primary In-Depth Report
RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, February 9, 2016 | 1:04am CT | Share

Media Monitors has released its update on the primary election that is taking place Tuesday in New Hampshire. The company has been tracking the political radio spots in Boston and Portsmouth-Dover, NH, for its focus markets. All the data captured for the radio report was from January 1 to February 7.

Hillary Clinton aired the most number of spots with a total of 2,710 -- 758 in Boston and 1,952 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Bernie Sanders was next with 2,362 spots -- 791 in Boston and 1,571 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Next biggest advertiser was Carly for America (A Super PAC) with 686 -- 103 in Boston and 583 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Carly Fiorina For President also ran 135 spots -- 53 in Boston and 82 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. That would bring her effective spot count to 821 spots. Marco Rubio's PAC Conservative Solutions ran 467 spots -- 114 in Boston and 353 spots in Portsmouth-Dover, NH.

Donald Trump, the frontrunner in New Hampshire according to most polls, ran 360 spots -- 186 in Boston and 174 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Ted Cruz seems to have an army of PACs running spots for him. First, his own campaign aired 308 spots -- 164 in Boston and 144 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. One of his Super PACs, Keep The Promise I ran 139 spots in Portsmouth-Dover and Courageous Conservatives cleared 120 spots in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. And finally, the Lone Star Committee bought 100 spots for Cruz -- 18 in Boston and 82 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. That brought his effective spot count up to 667 spots.

Chris Christie's Super PAC, America Leads ran 233 spots -- 134 in Boston and 99 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH, while Chris Christie For President aired only 24 spots in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Christie's effective spots count was 257 in our two spotlight markets. The Super PAC supporting Jeb Bush, Right To Rise USA, ran 94 spots -- 37 in Boston and 57 in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Jeb Bush ran no ads from his campaign.

With the debate performance of Chris Christie last Saturday night, it's clear why he went after Marco Rubio. The most negative or as we call them "Against" spots were run by Marco Rubio's supporting PAC Conservative Solutions against Chris Christie. They ran 524 spots in Portsmouth-Dover, NH. Marco Rubio's Super PAC Conservative Solutions also ran 65 spots against Ted Cruz in Portsmouth-Dover.

Westwood One has announced the winners of the third annual Westwood One Super Bowl Sound Awards, recognizing excellence in audio creativity and celebrating brand advertisers and radio creative. The company asked listeners to vote on their favorite audio commercials airing in the Westwood One Super Bowl 50 broadcast. Consumers could listen and vote on the ads at www.thesoundawards.com. In addition, Westwood One commissioned a Nielsen study of 3,030 consumers who rated all 45 commercials on a series of key attributes.

And the winners are:

Listeners voted for Service King's "Mission 2 Hire" ad as their favorite Super Bowl commercial. The ad promotes Service King's Mission 2 Hire program, which is dedicated to hiring 500 veterans at Service King locations around the country. Here is a link to hear the ad: http://thesoundawards.com/service-king/

Motel 6 was rated the most likeable ad in the Westwood One-commissioned Nielsen study. The brand's "Designer Dogs" ad features long-time Motel 6 narrator Tom Bodett, who promotes Motel 6's great rooms and low rates while poking fun at trendy dog breeds with silly names. The Motel 6 ad also received top consumer ratings for relevance, engagement, and memorability. Here is a link to hear the ad: http://thesoundawards.com/motel-6-3/

Service King also scored top marks in the Nielsen creative test, along with Motel 6's "Political Ad" (http://thesoundawards.com/motel-6/) and Wendy's "$4 for 4" (http://thesoundawards.com/wendys-2/).

The Motel 6 creative tested much stronger than Nielsen norms for radio advertising creative. Motel 6's winning ad scored an amazing 72% on likability versus the radio ad norm of 46%. On memorability, Motel 6 scored an impressive 78% versus the 59% radio advertising norm.

"Audio builds brands and drives sales. Today we celebrate excellence in audio creative on the Golden Anniversary of the Super Bowl, Super Bowl 50," said Westwood One Senior VP/Sports Sales & Marketing Brandon Berman. "We congratulate Service King, Motel 6, and Wendy's for their audio excellence."

Berman added, "More than 28 million fans engage with Westwood One's Super Bowl coverage via on-air, digital, and social platforms. We created the Super Bowl Sound Awards to encourage brands and their agencies to fashion memorable, breakthrough creative that resonates with listeners."

This package allows any imaging director to enhance the sonic identity of their station right out of the box. Truly cutting edge sounds coupled with a Benztown Extra-Terrestrial named Gary make AI-FX2 exactly what your station needs to sound out of this world."
