(Nashville, TN – April 19, 2010)  Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.® announces a unique educational opportunity for Country radio programmers with the debut of its “CRS: One on One” mentoring session, to be held May 7 in Nashville, Tenn.

KYGO Program Director, Joel Burke, and president of Rusty Walker Programming, Rusty Walker, are the featured speakers at the one-day session, which encourages candid, one-on-one interaction and discussion between participants about the current issues and challenges faced by those working in the Country Radio industry today.  Twelve applicants will be accepted for this session.

“As we continue the evolution of Country Radio Seminar, the idea to bring a select group of radio programmers together to learn and exchange ideas in an intimate setting is a logical step in the process,” says CRB Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “Much like ‘Inside the Actors Studio,’ this will give upcoming programmers an amazing opportunity to gain perspective and specific feedback on issues shaping the course of their career.  With candid conversation being the only agenda at CRS: One on One, we are eager to gauge the response from this event for consideration towards future endeavors.”

“CRS: One on One” will be held Friday, May 7, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the newly remodeled Country Radio Broadcasters offices in Nashville.  Programmers interested in attending must submit the application found on www.CRB.org before Friday, April 23 at 5 p.m. CST.

Eligible applicants must have radio programming experience (any market size) and pay a $59 participation fee, which includes lunch during the session.  A random lottery system drawing will determine the 12 accepted applicants.  Those accepted will be notified and listed on the CRB website no later than Monday, April 26.

The CRB offices are located at 819 18th Ave. S., Nashville, TN, 37203.  For more information, visit www.CRB.org or contact the CRB office at 615.327.4487.
