PRODUCTION MOMENTUM SUMMIT // Fri., 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.
