This week’s Cover Story features Triple A KTAO, LUNA103/Taos Owner Katie Speirs. In her first full industry interview since taking ownership, Speirs tells FMQB about KTAO, LUNA and the Solar Center, each entity’s place in the community and how they tie together, and why she thinks “mission statements” are not just for non-commercial stations anymore. In Programming To Win, Bob Quick shows you how Candy Crush and Star Wars tie in to radio programming. Question of the Week asks: If you could be BFF with any artist, who would it be and why?? Plus, a special Hot Shots from the Rita Ora showcase in New York and the FMQB History Page. [more]
