CRS 2010 Hot Topic Panel Announced

Additional Panelists, Performance From Rodney Atkins Also Announced

CRB, Inc.® has announced “The Art of Transition” as this year’s Hot Topic panel at CRS 2010 and finalized several additional panels and speakers for the three-day seminar, held Feb. 24-26, 2010.

According to the official CRS 2010 agenda, The Art of Transition focuses on the “life changing transformation we must all prepare ourselves for in today’s evolving business environment.”  The panel will be held from 11-11:50 a.m. in room 204-205 of the Convention Center.  Eric Samuels of Magic Motivation will open the panel, and Dan Halyburton of RadioTime will moderate.  Panelists include R.J. Curtis (Sony Music Entertainment), John Grady (Borman Entertainment) and Todd Cassetty (Hi-Fi Fusion).

“When planning this year’s CRS, the agenda committee left an opening for a ‘Hot Topic’ panel that addresses a far-reaching and timely issue,” says John Paul, CRS Agenda Chair.  “It's clear that anything regarding employment and transitioning from one job to another is a huge topic for many people right now, so we decided to dedicate a panel to career transitions and employment issues within our industry.”

Also announced is a 3 p.m. acoustic performance from Curb Records’ Rodney Atkins at the end of the “Label Partnerships” panel on Wednesday, Feb. 24.  One radio station in attendance will win a free show from Atkins.

Other recent panel updates to the CRS 2010 agenda include the addition of panelists Bob Richard (Emmis Indy) and Dave Demer (Clear Channel Atlanta) to Thursday’s “360 Experience” panel, the addition of moderator Lon Helton (Country Aircheck) and panelists Jeff Green (Country Aircheck), Jeff Garrison (KILT), Mike Brophey (WKLB) and Rick C.
