Programming Note: This will be our last episode before a hiatus of a couple weeks as Chris Kelly goes on his previously planned honeymoon, and as this also completes the ‘soft launch’ beta phase of the podcast. Once we’re back, the full blown launch of the RadioDaily will occur. In THIS episode, Pandora extends their footprint to reach Satellite subscribers by getting their own channel on Sirius XM. Promotions at labels and new program directors all across our fair industry for a Friday. And Ryan Kramer tees up a weekend mix tape for your listening pleasure. It’s the Radio Daily for Friday April 5, 2019.
iHeartMedia stock… coming soon to a portfolio near you while Bob Pittman is tearing up the media circuit talking about audio being “hot” again. Industry moves… an EVP out and a new one up at Alpha Media. And more new-ish faces at iHeart, Entercom, Cumulus and Bonneville in various markets across the country. Plus Drew Carpenter returns for part deux of “From Radio Zero to Voiceover Hero.” All in the Radio Daily for Thursday April 4 , 2019.
Getting back into the groove after WWRS … A former PD rises to an owner’s chair for six stations right smack in the middle of the entire United States of America. The Rolling Stones call a timeout on the North American leg of their tour, and I’ll tell you why. Kinda. Plus the usual industry moves and Ryan Kramer has the Tuesday version of his Music Meeting for you. It’s the RadioDaily… for April 2, 2019.
Ignoring R Kelly’s request to “keep it on the down low.” The re-imagination of a Washington DC morning show on a new platform. And a Tuesday Music Meeting with new tunes going for adds today at CHR & Rhythmic. All that and more in this special “Testing 1, 2, 3” episode of the RadioDaily.
