Only 2 Weeks Until CRB, Inc. Radio Outreach

CRB Radio Outreach, the newest educational offering of The Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. (CRB) is approaching fast.

The event will take place at the Courtyard Marriott in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Friday, April 20, 2007 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. "CRB Radio Outreach" is being offered free of charge to Country radio programming, sales and management personnel. It is designed to reach out to smaller markets and stations to share the expertise of the Country Radio community in a "growth through sharing" experience.

Topics scheduled to be covered during the one day event include:
  • On Air Talent
  • Program Management
  • Revenue & Sales
  • How To Make Your Station Sound Bigger
  • Labels and Networking
Participating panelists include: Blair Garner (Host of After MidNite and The Blair Garner Show), John Shomby (Director of Programming & Operations/Max Media of Hampton Roads), Vonneva Carter (General Sales Manager of WGH Radio), Robynn Jaymes (Music Director of WSLC-FM Radio), Mark McKay (Music Director/ Air Personality of WGH Radio), David Haley (VP of Promotion Equity Records), and John Zarling (National Promotion/New Media at Big Machine Records).

Big Machine recording artist, Dusty Drake will perform during the label sponsored luncheon.

John Shomby, Director of Programming and Operations for Max Media of Hampton Roads explains the impetus for the CRB Radio Outreach; "I remember the first regional radio seminar I ever attended. I was excited at the prospects of learning and meeting some big names in the business. I left that first seminar with myriad ideas for my radio station, a deeper knowledge of radio AND a strong list of new broadcast friends and contacts. CRB Radio Outreach is designed to do just that for the smaller markets. Our first event will offer discussion on everything from developing your in-house talent to making your station sound bigger through imaging and syndication. We'll have very experienced managers here to share secrets of maximizing sales, including non-traditional sources of revenue like the Internet and cellular phone. There will be a few labels here to discuss ways to build a strong relationship between your station and the record companies."
