BEHIND THE MIC with Allan

PRESS RELEASE

Boomer Public Radio looks to build a better radio network.Allan Holender is the founder of Boomer Public Radio.

 

The first internet radio broadcast in Canada was in 1997, and Allan Holender was behind the microphone in a little studio at Dowco Entertainment in Burnaby, B.C. That was  excatly 20 years ago. So it’s fitting that some of the most creative experiments in the growing medium of radio online were developed by Holender over that time by building five global online radio networks.

Boomer Public Radio, a year-old company headquartered in West Kelowna , is trying to build a better listening experience for the underserved 98,000 Boomers in the Okanagan Valley and the 10 million Baby Boomers and beyond in Canada that are “hungry” for a radio network  they can call their own. One that will remove nagging roadblocks for creative broadcast professionals and listeners alike. That puts the startup in competition with terrestrial radio stations both AM/FM with their default way of listening to radio in cars and at home on old style radios. BPR now is on the virtual dial streaming live.

If chief executive Allan Holender seems unfazed, it’s probably because he’s not new to the task. As the founder of terrestrial radio station C-ISL 650 in Richmond, and online radio networks like Media On Tap, Positve World Radio, Conscious Planet Radio,and recently Okanagan & Peachland Radio. Holender’s  been working in the field since radio first crossed paths with the Internet.

“If you were to build radio now,” he says, “this is how you’d do it.”

Veteran broadcast executive  Allan Holender brings a fresh take to the radio of the future.

“Radio is currently in the throes of great transformation with the rise of podcasting and live audio streaming services, and it’s being  reinvented by young people,” said Spreaker CEO Francesco Baschieri.
NIELSEN MAKES “GOOD PROGRESS” ON WEB RADIO RATINGS

Nielsen chief executive Mitch Barnes thinks the radio industry may finally be coming around to an agreement on how his company reports streaming audio ratings. The build-out of the measurement service has been completed, but its rollout has until now largely been stalled by broadcaster resistance to a product that would put FM/AM streaming alongside pureplay data.

AM’S A BLANK PAGE FOR FOUR -IN-TEN AMERICANS. 

Compared to FM, AM radio has a low approval rating — just 13% strongly approve and 31% somewhat approve of AM, according to a new online poll from Mark Kassof. The low rating is symptomatic of a bigger problem than programming dissatisfaction. A growing number of listeners never tune to the legacy band.

 

Until next time,
Allan
