Quincy, IL (January 23, 2009)--Topics from survival tactics to new revenue sources will be discussed in "Main Street Radio," the second Town Hall webinar from Broadcast Electronics (BE), being held on February 4.
The webinar will be held online from 1:00 to 2:00 pm, Eastern, on February 4, and will focus on operational and financial solutions to help group owners, general managers, program directors and chief engineers of small- to mid-market stations maximize their capital and human resources.
Radio operators from all walks of main street will speak, including Ron Davis, the National Chairman of the Small Market Operators Caucus and a member of the NAB Small Market Committee who owns and operates four stations in Montana. Larry Patrick, Wyoming station owner and operator and station broker who has helped transfer ownership of more than 500 stations in the past 20 years, will also speak. In addition, WKHM 105.3 FM owner Bruce Goldsen will talk about how his Michigan station is remaining relevant in the economic downturn.
Other topics to be discussed include why community stations are at an advantage in an economic downturn; financial and operating benefits of today's main street station as compared to "Wall Street" stations; why some small town stations are seeing an uptick in revenue, by as much as 10 percent; the latest technologies benefiting radio, their applications and the potential for new revenue; and more.
The webinar is free to all broadcasters. To register, broadcasters can click on www.bdcast.com/bulletins/townhall.
The "Main Street Radio" Town Hall webinar is the second in a series of webinars sponsored by BE, which hosted an HD Radio Town Hall in November.
