Its a short news week this week as most of the news I could find online centred around the Radio Mercury Awards Nomination Finalists being announced – read the short story on RADIO INK – HERE – it looks like this years awards are dominated by comedy commercials – which isn’t a bad thing – see the full list RIGHT HERE on the Mercury site.
An story from RADIO INK about how a Commuter Metric Could Unlock Higher Ad Spend – According to a study commissioned by the Cumulus Media/Westwood One Audio Active Group – its a great read for us data nerds!
Loyd Ford chats on the RADIO INK site about Five Steps To Improve Your Sales Training Process – I agree with Loyd, and training for your sales team should always be ongoing.
One of my favourite radio competitions/promotions is back in BRISBANE Australia – MEDIAWEEK drops the details on the KIIS 97.3FM secret microphone in a mysterious location find it and win $20,000!
I have to give space to this story from NPR’s from UA’s LITTLE ROCK – NPR’s Stephen Thompson’s top Weird Al songs, 40 years after the parody genius’ debut – I am a HUGE Weird Al fan – play the audio file or read the transcript about the king of parody.
That’s it for today – there’s not much here unfortunately, as I said the majority of sites covered the Mercury Awards and the Eurovision competition – sigh!
