Broadcast & Media Strategies That Work


In theMedia 

In our final episode of this continuing series, we hear the conversation Erica Farber of the RAB had with Mike McVay, President of McVay Media. Founded in 1984 as a programming consultancy, today the company is focused on radio, network and syndication, coaching talent, working with podcasters and as Mike puts it, “marketing for things that color outside the lines."

The audience is fragile.   It isn’t your birthright to have them as listeners. You can easily and accidentally fail their expectations. If that happens … it takes a long time to bring them back.

The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation Unveils the 2024 Giants of Broadcasting & Electronic Arts Award Recipients

The Library of American Broadcasting Foundation (LABF) will recognize distinguished industry leaders for lifetime achievements during the 2024 Giants of Broadcasting & Electronic Arts luncheon and awards ceremony. The annual event will take place from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12th at Gotham Hall in New York City.

The ceremony is presented by the LABF, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the past, reflecting the present, and informing the future. The awards presentation celebrates the remarkable creators, inovators, leaders, performers, and journalists who have blazed trails in the radio and television broadcasting industry.

LABF has honored more than 200 leaders in broadcasting since the event's 2003 inception. Net proceeds from the luncheon will support the preservation and expansion of the Library of American Broadcasting collection, which is curated at the University of Maryland. Considered among the largest of its kind, the Library of American Broadcasting plays a vital role in growing, preserving, and providing access to archives that highlight broadcasting's profound influence on culture and history throughout the world. The LABF also supports the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) through the underwriting of research, creative grants and academic publications focused on broadcast media.

“This event celebrates the ‘innovators and trailblazers in the media industry,” said LABF Co-Chairs Heidi Raphael and Jack Goodman. “We are absolutely thrilled to pay tribute to and honor these outstanding individuals for their many contributions in broadcasting and American Culture.”

We Get Letters

Read "Winning With Syndication" HERE.

I very much enjoyed your latest article.  I am new to the syndication process. However, I reach out to every new affiliate to personally introduce myself and ask what I can do to help make American Warrior Radio a success in their local market. (Promos, advertiser endorsements, etc.) 


The more successful our programming is on THEIR station, the more successful WE are in achieving our mission of getting these important stories to as many ears as possible.


I've only added a few so far but getting the feeling that local PD's are not used to hearing these kind of messages from syndicated hosts.  Hopefully more will read your article and take it to heart!
