Finney Media Releases Initial Results of “Why Listen? Survey” at Momentum 2016 on Sept. 8

Finney Media President Chuck Finney today observed that his Momentum presentation next Thursday, September 8, will confirm surprise and expand understanding of the Contemporary Christian music audience. Finney will present eight headlines that reflect multiple windows into the CCM audience, drawn from the results of over 20,000 participants engaged in the first Finney Media Why Listen? national survey this year.

“Your listener seeks—yes, seeks—spiritual growth. And in the process the radio station plays a powerful bridge role,” Finney commented. To help quantify this relationship, Finney will include the sum Net Promoter Score for all participating music stations as part of his presentation.

Each participating station will receive their own Net Promoter Score when they obtain their personalized results in September. The Finney Media Why Listen? Survey 2016 will be followed by a Dallas-Ft. Worth area Workday for a deep dive into results and practical action steps. This event will be held Spring of 2017.

Finney Media Research has been impacting the Contemporary Christian Music format for eight years, helping clients obtain deeper impact and broader audiences through listener research. The group is increasingly working within other formats including the Christian Teaching and Talk format.

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
