CRS $99 Unemployment Rate Returns, Submissions For Radio Humanitarian Awards Now Open

CRS $99 Unemployment Rate Returns, Submissions For Radio Humanitarian Awards Now Open
(Nashville, Tenn. – Dec. 7, 2011)  For the third straight year, the $99 Unemployment Rate is being offered at Country Radio Seminar, to be held Feb. 22-24, 2012, at the Nashville Convention Center.

Available through Jan. 27, 2012, the $99 Unemployment Rate provides CRS attendees access to more than 30 on-site educational panels and roundtable discussions.  Tickets to the Lady Antebellum show, New Faces of Country Music Show® and daily luncheons must be purchased separately at additional cost.

“As our industry continues to weather the effects of an unpredictable economy, we felt it was the right thing to do to offer the Unemployment Rate again this year at CRS 2012,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “We are lucky enough to be in a position to extend some help to those currently without a job in Country radio, and the networking opportunities at CRS cannot be stressed enough.  I’m looking forward to a day soon when we won’t need an Unemployment Rate at Country Radio Seminar.”  

An on-site $99 Unemployment Rate will be available for walk-up registrants, but advance Unemployment Rate registrations must be received at the CRS offices for processing no later than Jan. 27.  Contact Kristen McRary at (615) 327-4487 or Kristen@CRB.org for registration materials.  Proof of unemployment may be subject to verification.

Submissions are now being accepted through Monday, Jan. 9, 2012, for the Radio Humanitarian Awards.  The awards are presented at CRS to full-time Country radio stations for their efforts to improve the quality of life for the communities they serve.  Awards are presented to stations in Large (markets 1-50), Medium (markets 51-130) and Small (markets 131+) categories for public service performed between Nov. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2011.

Applicants should submit a brief written presentation (two pages maximum, including photos) to humanitarian@crb.org, summarizing the details of the station’s community service efforts performed during that period.
