Let's not confuse measurable with effectiveness. Radio can demonstrate brand growth in every market for 90 plus years. Wheaties is the first example and I am sure in every town and big city there is a story about a small business that started on radio and is now is iconic in that area. Portland has those stories a car dealer, a roofing company, a county fair....This is why getting our strategy and story straight is so important..lead the pack don't chase the tail of modern groupthink.

To be sure, Marie, radio could use some quality data. But.... it ain't forthcoming - not the kind advertisers are getting from online and not this quarter.

Our job is to start producing commercial content that can move minds and bodies... to the de-partment store over yonder.

Excellent article, BUT we still need a key component from an advertiser's perspective: Effective metrics to measure ROI,

Great article, Melissa and I could not agree more with your position! Also, Tim Miles is an excellent choice for anyone trying to move prospects/customers through the Communication Process/Buying Funnel on the value of telling great stories and radio as a powerful vehicle to deliver them. The Mind truly does work by EAR!

Unfortunately differentiaion doesn't stop there. Competing individual groups in a market with overlapping formats default to rate discounting as the primary share building tool.
