Previously announced sessions include: 

“360 ‘Radio’ for 2020”:   John Zimmer, President of Zimmer Radio and Marketing Group, NAB representative from Missouri & Kansas, and the current Chairman of the 2020 NAB Radio Show in Nashville, shares his insights regarding the successful evolution of radio into the new decade.  What will it take to grow your business while competing with new technologies and new generations of consumers?  Use his insights to navigate the year ahead. 
“How Improv Can improve your Show & Your Public Speaking”:   You – yes YOU – are 100% capable of succeeding at Improv! All you need are three core techniques. Theatre professor and former Second City actor Christie Maturo will walk you though the process. In less than half an hour, you’ll have permission to be you and have the confidence that what you say will be interesting and make great radio.

Partner Mike O’Malley points out, “Inspiration and innovation come from events like this, the country radio seminar, and anywhere information is shared; and “what if” is celebrated. Providing an annual opportunity for this knowledge/idea sharing is important to us because, while this is a country-centric event, the takeaways go beyond a single format. In the end, it’s about great radio and ways to make long lasting connections with listeners.” 

Brenner adds, “We are thrilled to be back at the Omni in partnership with our friends at Country Radio Seminar.  This fast paced 3.5 hours are some of the most talked about at CRS. It is an opportunity to share, learn, grow and re-energize for the new year!”
The A&O&B Pre-CRS Seminar is free to all A&O&B clients, as well as any broadcasters in non-competitive situations. You can RSVP to Mike O’Malley – or Becky Brenner
