CRS and Edison Research Presents Details on CRS Presentation

Country Radio Seminar (CRS) shared details about its annual research project, which will be presented on Tuesday, February 6 at 9:30 a.m. (CT) during CRS 2018.  Edison will delve into the popularity of Smart Speakers with the growth of the devices expected to quadruple in 2017 compared to last year.

While fewer and fewer people have FM radios in the house anymore, Smart Speakers are seen as an opportunity for radio to get back in the home. According to new research, 71% of Smart Speaker owners who listen to Country radio said listening to their favorite AM/FM radio station is a reason they wanted the device. 

The presentation will look at the new devices form the perspective of the Country listener in order to understand how they are already using Smart Speakers and how they use the technology to connect with their favorite radio stations. Edison Research will present ideas on how to use Smart Speakers to strengthen the already strong relationship between the listener and Country Radio. 

“This is technology that is not just being used by young people. We’re seeing so many different kinds of owners who enjoy interacting with these devices. Smart Speakers present a tremendous opportunity for radio,” said Megan Lazovick, Director of Research at Edison Research. 
Drawing from new behavioral data and opinions from in-person interviews with Country fans, the research will pinpoint how radio can use this technology to their advantage. Edison, known for putting on an entertaining and informative show, will bring videos that walk through the process of creating and using a skill on a Smart Speaker –with interviews with developers, Country Radio programmers, and Smart Speaker users. 

To review more of this year’s agenda, please visit www.CountryRadioSeminar.com or download the CRS mobile app.  As in previous years, the CRS app provides attendees with an expanded CRS agenda, panel descriptions, speaker bios, live performances, CRS after-hour activities and more.
Country Radio Seminar will be held Monday, February 5 through Wednesday, February 7 at the luxurious Omni Nashville, in the heart of downtown Nashville.  Register to attend CRS 2018 today by visiting www.CountryRadioSeminar.com or by calling the CRS offices at 615-327-4487.  Registration is now available at the “Final Rate” of $699.

Harrison New OM For Townsquare Media/Wyoming

Townsquare Media/Wyoming and tapped Don Harrison as OM for its Cheyenne and Laramie markets including Country KLEN, 106.3 Cowboy Country.  Other stations in the cluster include News-Talk KGAB-A, and Classic Rock KIGN (101.9 KING FM)/Cheyenne and News-Talk KOWB0A and Country KCGY (Y-95 Country)/Laramie.  They have also extended OM Donovan Short's services through 2020.

Short said, "We’ve been on the hunt for a strong leader to build on the great things happening with our teams on Wyoming’s front range, and were fortunate to connect with a talented programmer like Don, who truly gets the Townsquare approach and is excited about putting down some Wyoming roots –- can’t wait to set the table for 2018."

“I almost moved to Florida in late August/early September but Hurricane Irma made me reevaluate because my next destination needed to be a place to settle down and call home," said Harrison. "I quickly identified Townsquare Media as a company in the top echelon of the radio industry and was determined to be part of something special. Fortunately, my patience paid off when some OM positions opened up this fall. Thanks to Kurt Johnson, Donovan Short, Leslie Hill, Jordan Dawson and Bob Price for providing an amazing opportunity to manage a couple Townsquare clusters and live in one of the most beautiful, healthiest areas in country –- hot springs, snow-capped mountains, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone -– Wyoming is a natural wonderland!”

“Working alongside our Wyoming crew, most of all Wyoming Market Pres. Bob Price, has been the highlight of my career," added Short. "As my ‘radio odometer’ gets ready to turn over 20 years with these brands next year, I’m mindful that it’s rare in our biz to get an opportunity to stay in one place for that amount of time, which speaks to a great team and a pretty incredible place to call home. Thanks to Buffalo Bob, Bill Wilson, Dhruv Prasad, Erik Hellum, Kurt Johnson and Kevin Godwin for the confidence, excited to be in the ‘Townsquare’ for more years to come.”

Mueller Pays Up

As was reported here, last August an eight member jury ruled in favor of Taylor Swift's counter-suit of former KYGO/Denver personality David Mueller, who was accused of assulating and battering the entertainer.  As Swift's suit requested, the jury has awarded her $1.  The jury also found that Andrea Swift, Taylor's mother and Frank Bell, her radio liaison did not intentionally interfere with Mueller's employment.

Mueller was fired two days after the photo-op backstage at a 2013 Swift concert in Denver.  It was at this concert that she and her team claimed he touched her in an inappropriate manner.  Mueller filed suit, naming Swift, her mother and Bell saying they had "intentional interference with contractual obligations," and "interference with prospective business relations." He was seeking $3 million in damages.  Swift fired back with a counter-suit seeking $1 and saying that any furhter damanges awarded her will be donated to charity.

Now, the New York Daily News reports that Mueller has paid Swift with a Sacagawea coin last week.  

"Mueller provided a letter to the Associated Press showing the payment was sent November 28th," writes the paper.  "Mueller previously told the AP he inteded the coin fearuring a prominent Native American woman was a final job at the singer in a case her side called a wine for all women."

Nielsen Repots Radio Listeners Spend 58% Of Their Tune-In Time With Their Favorite Stations

Nielsen has released audio data from second quarter 2017.  This report found radio listeners spend 58% of their tune-in time with their favorite stations.

Nielsen writes, "Less Than a decade ago, most consumers could not have imagined the plethora of ways they’d have to engage with content. But the rise of technology and smart devices has opened the media option floodgates and consumption and old habits have changed accordingly. Engagement with AM/FM radio has not been immune to these changes. Now, with the click of a button, consumers can access their favorite radio station in sunny San Diego, listen to weather updates in New York or listen to pop music walking to school in Denver." 


How can AM/FM stations compete to have a greater listenership with consumers.  Nielsen suggests, "Location, Location, Location rings true when it comes to radio," adding "Americans spend 87% of their AM/FM radio listening tuning into their three favorite stations (based on the amount of time spent with each). What’s more interesting is that 58% of all listening goes to just one station, the listener's favorite (called the '1st Preference' station, or P1). While format preferences differ by listening habits, geography and even demographics, one thing is certain, AM/FM radio plays a very important role in the daily lives of consumers."

Compared with choices 10 years ago, audio options today are much more diverse, but AM/FM radio still reaches 93% of U.S. adults.When it comes to listening to AM/FM radio, more than two-thirds of listening happens away from the home--when people are working or close to the point of purchase when they’re shopping. According to the report, at least 65% of American adults listen to the radio away from the home between 6a and 7p during weekdays. And consumption peaks at 75% outside of the home during the afternoon drive, between 3p and 7p during the week. Not surprisingly, Americans who are employed listen to AM/FM radio more than those who don’t work. 

The report's data also showed that 76% of radio listeners are between 18-64 and are in the workforce.  Listeners who are employed full-time engage with radio 2.5 longer per week than listers who are not.  The average commute to work in the U.W. is nearly 26 minutes and it's no surprise that peak hours for listeners who are employed fulltime are between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.  Nielsen writes, "For advertisers, these are critical insights because they provide details about when they can engage with an attentive audience—an audience that spends nearly 2 hours and 45 minutes with the medium and has disposable income."
 

Knowing which formats consumers tune in is a critical part of understanding their listening habits.  Of the top 20 formats in 2017, Country and New/Talk were the top two, securing 13.6% and 12.2% shares of audience, respectively (of all radio listening nationwide, 13.6% went to Country stations, and 12/2% went to News Talk). 

"Because radio formats are tailored to reach large groups of people with common interests," notes Nielsen, "it's an effective media to reach more diverse audiences For example, at least 67% of black and Hispanic consumers listen to AM/FM radio daily: Hispanics tune in an average 5.2 days per week, and blacks tune in 5 days per week." 

Nielsen sums up, "While the change in seasons brings changes in media consumption, there is very little seasonal fluctuation when it comes to AM/FM radio. Over the course of the year, the monthly radio audience in Nielsen Portable People Meter markets changes by only around 10% from the most-listened-to month (May) to the least-listened-to (January). Radio listening is also consistent year round, with a very high reach and frequent usage among average listeners (5 out of seven days per week tuned in)."
