Real-time programming, by Paul Kaye

The mission for Radio is simple (but not easy) “create compelling content and relevant brands.” Over the last few weeks we have been reminded of the importance of needing to “program in real time not on our own time” in order to be relevant

The Elements Of Great Content, by Paul Kaye

For many shows the idea of creating great content feels like chasing a mythical creature. “Does it exist?” “How will we know if we have discovered it?” Many shows don’t know what great content should sound like. They have heard people talk about it but have never experienced it for themselves

As you would expect between acquaintances working in the same industry, our conversation touched on our current work-related experiences, our challenges, our hopes and our fears for the years ahead.

Take that judgement out of here! By Paul Kaye

I’m often asked what the greatest mistake I see during concept sessions is. The answer is judgment. Judgement has no place in coaching.

Be Smart About Your Branding by Paul Kaye

Successful stations are always well branded. These stations invest in saying their name (which often has included dial position) on the air, over and over. Safe in the belief that repetition builds recognition. These stations have understood – and embraced – the basic need to identify themselves frequently. They sell their brand name with pride and enthusiasm
