Pittman To Chair Radio Ink's Forecast 2013


Radio Ink is pleased and honored to announce that Clear Channel CEO Bob Pittman will serve as radio chair of Forecast 2013. The annual radio financial summit will be held in New York City at the Harvard Club on November 28, 2012, one week after Thanksgiving. Radio Ink Chairman and Publisher Eric Rhoads said, "Bob is driven to change radio and help take us to the highest possible level of success. His influence on the agenda at this year's Forecast will focus on improving this industry, making this one of the most important Forecast conferences in history." Pittman has topped Radio Ink's "40 Most Powerful People in Radio" list for the last two consecutive years. 

Radio Ink EVP/Radio Deborah Parenti notes, "Forecast 2013 is our 10th annual summit and occurs in Radio Ink's 20th-anniversary year. In addition to having Bob put his unique stamp on the program, attendees can probably expect a few surprises along with the traditional highly focused and targeted agenda being planned."

Radio Ink's Forecast is the radio industry's exclusive financial conference, gathering radio owners, CEOs, CFOs, group executives, and managers with Wall Street and private equity investors and analysts to forecast the upcoming year. Well informed and noted economic, political, and media participants present trends, opportunities, projections, and analytical commentary on the state of business, especially as it impacts media. Now in its 10th year, Forecast has become the premium event in radio financial circles. The event is held at the Harvard Club in New York City and closed to the press.

Immediately following Forecast, Radio Ink's "40 Most Powerful People in Radio" are honored at an exclusive, invitation-only reception, also at the Harvard Club. Forecast attendees will get the exclusive opportunity to mingle with these industry luminaries. Only registered conference attendees are guaranteed invitations to this premier networking after-party. Attendance is limited to 200.

Listeners and advertisers, indeed. Is this not like asking Iran to chair a nuclear non-proliferation conference? The main topic of discussion: "How to get away with even less servicing of the marketplaces."

Forecast 2013 will gather "radio owners, CEOs, CFOs, group executives, and managers with Wall Street and private equity investors and analysts to forecast the upcoming year."
OK... One BIG problem-- The BIGGEST categories that count - average RADIO LISTENERS, and RADIO ADVERTISING CLIENTS
are not invited to this conference!!... Wow. ... With those two most important groups missing, one could argue that the conference will simply be industry "insiders" all just "speculating" with each other!
