The Week In Review: 12/9-12/13

In our Year-End Cover story we ask our panels of experts to address radio’s urgent needs to align the medium up with some “best practices” perspectives that will enhance its position as a competitive multi-media player. Dom Theodore, Peter Smyth, Chris Oliviero, Rick Cummings, Pat Welsh, Fred Jacobs, Buzz Knight, R Dub!, Erza Kucharz, Richard Harker and Bob Quick inspect: radio’s product, delivery systems, digital platforms and social media and what to expect in the future. In Programming To Win, Rich Van Slyke has put together a to-do list to easily create your holiday liners in just 15 minutes. Question of the Week asks: Most Memorable Moments of 2013: 1) Proudest moment of the year? 2) Most embarrassing moment of the year? 3) Major influence of the year (person or event)? Plus, Hot Shots and the FMQB History Page.  [more]
