Chicago Momentum Summits 2017

DATES/TIMES

On-Air Momentum Summit

Thursday, April 27th  //  8:30a – 5:00p
Whether you’re new on-air or a seasoned veteran, you’ll benefit from this opportunity to learn from top talent in Christian Music radio, as we all strive to grow our audience. Join us for a full day focused on fine-tuning the connecting fiber for any radio station – on-air personalities. We’ll cover how to keep your listeners engaged through storytelling, connecting with your audience by being authentic, creatively sharing your faith on-air, and more. If you’re on the air, want to be on the air, or manage those on the air, your day will be jam packed with takeaways and key networking opportunities in the first-ever Momentum On-Air Summit!
 

Production Momentum Summit

Friday, April 28th  //  8:30a – 5:00p
Your listeners hear this more than just about every other element on your radio station…production. Commercials, business underwriting spots, station promos and imaging are second only to music when it comes to on-air inventory. Spend the day learning about how to get the best in listener audio, how to get you and your Program Director on the same page, and on-the-spot feedback on your own produced pieces. Whether you’re a contract producer or directing the department, you’ll gain valuable insight from industry leaders and colleagues.

Check out what others have to share about their experience at our Momentum Summits!

“As an audience engagement specialist and member of our station’s leadership team, it’s important for me to be up to date on all aspects of our Media Ministry, including current trends and tried and true approaches that never get old. That’s why I was so excited about attending the Programming and Millennial Summits. The inspiration was endless! Speakers provided me with insights and knowledge that I couldn’t have gained anywhere else! I can’t wait to share my pages and pages of notes with my radio team and see where God takes us!  And I can’t forget about all of the opportunities to connect with the best in this business. THIS is PRICELESS!” Marianne Milano, KTIS

“To see the passion that the attendees and the speakers at the CMB Momentum Summit had was truly inspiring. Not only their passion for their faith, but more significantly, their passion for doing great radio in a meaningful and effective manner that speaks to everyone and helps change the perceptions many people have of what Christian radio is.” Michael La Crosse, iHeartMedia

”I’ve been to Momentum for years, but this was my first CMB Summit event. It made me wish I would have started doing this years ago! Speakers are on-par with Momentum, but the Summit lets you dig deeper into their specific themes. Definitely worth it.” Matt Pelishek, KAXL

“The Nashville Momentum Summit was a great gathering of talented people and fresh ideas! Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. I would highly recommend catching one of these any time you are ready to collaborate with some new people!” Barbara Bridges, Mix 92.9

CMB’s mission is rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ and our desire to equip Christian music broadcasters.  We acknowledge that all sponsors, speakers and event partners may not affirm our statement of faith.  However, we believe that their participation will strengthen CMB’s overall mission and Kingdom objectives.
