In this week’s eQB Cover Story we catch up with the inimitable Fishboy of WKRZ fame. Born and raised in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area, KRZ’s resourceful Music Director/Night Jock has such an uncanny feel for his market and his audience that it materializes into huge night ratings and a music mix on the station that hits the bulls-eye. Entercom’s KRZ has been in the Top 40 business since 1980 and Fish and his fellow staffers make the station as relevant as it’s ever been. In Programming To Win, the Nielsen Audio Programming Team takes a close look at summer listening trends for the past few years and analyzes what factors could lead to a ratings spike in the upcoming months. Question of the Week asks: What was your best artist interview and what made it great? Plus, Hot Shots and the FMQB History Page. [more]
