You sense it. You feel it. You live it. You're involuntarily and simultaneously drawn into multiple arenas clamoring for your attention. It’s the next break, the next detail, the next deadline, the next report, the next event…

Living with the demands and distractions of what we do in radio is inevitable. CMB understands. And we believe it’s why you are here. This year during Momentum, we encourage you to unwind and unplug as much as possible, to “be present” and be inspired, be refreshed, be better not just at what you do, but be better at who you are.

We believe you are here with a community of friends and colleagues to make a deeper, more positive difference through radio. Be here. Be engaged. Be present.

"I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Genesis 28:15

                                                                                                                

"Momentum is a place to either walk away with confidence or challenge the way you’re doing business. It reminds you to unite as a format, in an ever increasingly competitive environment, and to focus and refresh your life, station and career goals."
Todd Stach, WAY-FM • Network Program Director
