I was at the NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Convention in Las Vegas and attended the radio luncheon. They announced this years Crystal Award winners, inducted Chicago, radio legend Larry Lujack into the Hall of Fame and former MTV and AOL leader Bob Pitman was the key note speaker.
I thought Bob Pittman had some great things to say about radio and it's future. He stated that radio has a bright future because it is a Great consumer business. He went on to say that a good consumer business is about two things; convenience and branding and that radio has both. Pittman added that radio programmers are some of the best brand-builders in the world, a statement that I definitely a agree with.
Pittman was very bullish on radio and its future!
Kelly M. Brooks of Radio World did a nice job of recapping Pittman's address and comments by NAB President, David Rehr and Larry Lujack. Read it here ==>
