CRS-40 Research Study, CRB Vision, CRS-41 Registration, Executive Memo Updates Available
(Nashville, TN – April 13, 2009) In recent weeks, Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. has posted several updates on their website at www.CRB.org, including the full results of the CRS-40 Radio P1 Study.
Together with Edison Research, CRB, Inc. has posted the full CRS-40 presentation of their recent National Country Radio P1 Study findings in the form of a video slideshow, complete with audio commentary. The study revealed noteworthy trends regarding repetition in country radio playlists, how listeners are finding new music, syndicated versus local programming and the importance of social networks.
In addition to the research findings, additional content featured on the CRB website includes the streaming video page “CRB Vision,” the advance CRS-41 registration option and the Executive Memo updates.
CRB Vision is an exclusive virtual “video classroom” that houses clips from five of CRS-40’s most popular educational panels, “Talent with a Capital T,” “40 Great Programming Ideas,” “40 New Media Ideas,” “Music Scheduling for Dummies” and “40 Great Promotional Ideas.” The new content is made available by Tampa Digital Studios and can be viewed for free. Additionally, visitors can also stream an interview through the website with this year’s CRS-40 keynote speaker, marketing expert Seth Godin.
“Although there is no substitute for the amount of knowledge that can be gained by those attending Country Radio Seminar in person each year, these audio and video clips give a glimpse into the types of information available at our panels and seminars,” says CRB Executive Director Ed Salamon. “We hope this kind of exclusive content educates and encourages people to attend future CRS conventions.”
Registration for CRS-41 (to be held Feb. 24-26, 2010) is now available on the CRB website as well. A four-part installment plan is currently being offered for a limited time. CDs from the last four Country Radio Seminars can also be ordered through the website.
CRB.org continues to post current news updates in the form of the Executive Memo, a weekly commentary on a country radio industry topic, posted by a prominent Country Radio or music industry leader. Recent topics include a recap of CRS-40, a look ahead to CRS-41 and coverage of Nashville’s recent Leadership Music Digital Summit.
