What Broadcasters MUST Do in the Online Radio Space

What is REALLY going on in the online radio space in local markets all across America? Triton Digital Chief Strategy Officer Patrick Reynolds lifts the veil on one local market, San Diego, at hivio 2013. In this presentation, Patrick brings us up to date on trends in online radio and explains just how much online listening is happening to Pandora at the local market level (it's pretty astounding). In the month before hivio, about two-thirds of the market's online listening was to Pandora, while the rest was spread across an astounding 4,754 different sources, including many broadcasters … [Read more...]


Representing Radio at SXSW

One of the drumbeats at the recent hivio radio ideas festival was that broadcasters spend too much time in their radio-only silos and not nearly enough time crossing media and conference boundaries to mingle with new people and new ideas (indeed, this was one of the motivating drives behind hivio in the first place). Here's a chance for you to change that. Patrick Reynolds, Chief Strategy Officer of Triton Digital, is trying to get a session related to radio and audio on the agenda for the upcoming SXSW conference (you and I are the folks that vote for the "winning" sessions for SXSW). … [Read more...]


Key Takeaways from the hivio Radio Ideas Festival

What are the key takeaways from hivio, our inaugural radio ideas festival? Listen and find out! Earlier this week I was honored to be one of the featured interviews on the Radio Stuff Podcast published by Radio consultant and programmer Larry Gifford and radio personality and producer Deb Slater.

Increase Radio’s Profile at SXSW!

In this transmedia world of ours any gathering that attracts only folks from one medium is missing the point. SXSW is no such gathering, and radio should be represented alongside music, film, and interactive.  Want to know where radio's future is?  It's in attendance at SXSW and other such conferences. Now you have a chance to elevate radio's role at SXSW and it's only a click away. If you think, as most everyone in radio does, that the current system of music royalties is an almost arbitrary crazy quilt mess of onerous free enterprise-killing penalties, then here's your chance to do … [Read more...]


Key Lessons from Online Radio Abroad

Two things separate the way online radio works in the US from the way it tends to work internationally. First, there's far more cooperation between the interested parties abroad. And when people work together on common goals, common incentives, common platforms, they are more likely to achieve results. Broadcasters in the US need to recognize that the online radio marketplace is not an extension of the radio platform - it's an all new platform.  And new platforms grow because they're nursed with tender loving care by all those who stand to benefit from the new platform.  If it's … [Read more...]


The State of Online Radio

What's new in online radio and what are the implications for advertising? That was the topic in a recent conference call hosted for a technology audience, not an audience of broadcasters. One of my great joys is listening in or participating in the Yi-Tan Tech Community "Conversations about Change" call.  It's a weekly conference call directed towards tech-savvy listeners, executives, and investors, and it's hosted by Jerry Michalski and Pip Coburn. Recently the topic was the state of online radio and its value as an advertising medium. I was one of the guests on the call along … [Read more...]
