Hey Radio, What Happens Next?

I heard a story recently from a Buzzfeed exec. As part of their never-ending experimentation with new platforms - and as part of their desire to play a joke on the boss - they filled the boss's office with goats and hay while the boss was temporarily away at a meeting. What would happen when he came back to his office to see...that?! The whole scene ran on Facebook Live and the metrics, as with all things Buzzfeed, were through the roof. But here's the interesting part of the story: While the goats were grazing around the office all alone views grew and grew and grew. But … [Read more...]

What Podcasting Can’t Do

Is podcasting the hot new thing? Maybe. But it is not the hot everything, not even when it comes to audio. Look at Facebook, a platform that was driven primarily by text until recently, when it became driven primarily by images and later by video.

And Radio’s Secret Power is…

Recently one of my radio clients explained how his 20-year-old daughter uses radio: “She chases her favorite songs around the dial,” he said. For her, every station button is another chance at hitting the proverbial jackpot. Either I land on a song I love or I don’t. And if I don’t, I move to the next button.

But this is the behavior of someone who is using radio because it’s convenient, not because it’s her preferred way to solve a problem. Let’s face it, if it’s your … [Read more...]
