What’s Radio’s Future? That’s the Wrong Question

What’s going to happen to radio in the future?

That’s what everybody wants to know, and it’s the wrong question.

Here’s a better one:  How do broadcasters leverage the relationships we have between our consumers and our clients mediated in our presence or, as I like to put it, our “sandbox”?

Do our brands need a regularly updated website or a mobile app?  Again, the wrong questions.

It’s not about the fads you should follow, it’s about what business you are in and how to maximize that business.

What follows is a really good interview with me recorded just prior to my presentation at this week’s National Association of Farm Broadcasters conference.

Listen!  You won’t regret it.  Yes, it’s short.

    “The future is disorder. A door like this has cracked open five or six times since we got up on our hind legs. It’s the best possible time to be alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong.”–The character Valentine, in the play Arcadia by Tom Stoppard
