The Week In Review: 10/22 - 10/26

This week’s eQB Cover Story features a one-on-one with WNOU & WHHH/Indianapolis PD Leo Baldwin who celebrates year one of overseeing programming at two of Radio One's most important radio stations. In Programming To Win, Richard Harker tackles the concept of “listener fidelity” with the ways that a listener’s loyalty can reward your station in the ratings in both diary and PPM markets. Question of the Week asks: "If you could dress up as any recording artist or Hollywood celebrity for Halloween, who would it be and why?" Plus Hot Shots and the History Page. [more]
