    From Radio Insight: After iHeartRadio sent out a tweet promoting Kelly Clarkson as a performer at this weekend’s iHeartRadio Music Festival, Clarkson went on the offense taking aim at the company for the lack of airplay the company gave her most recent album. The shots appeared to be taken after the failure of “Meaning of Life” to produce any single with noticeable airplay. The lead single “Love So Soft” peaked on the Billboard charts at #21 with 12 weeks on the chart. Is that iHeart’s fault or the lack of the record label to promote the album knowing it didn’t have a song that would succeed at radio? Clarkson is one of those artists that has transcended the need for radio airplay. The album was on many critic’s best of 2017 lists. Her judging role on The Voice gave her more exposure than she would’ve gotten through radio. And that will only grow when she launches a daily television talk show in September 2019. Clarkson still retains plenty of airplay at Hot AC and AC from her other tracks, including many iHeartMedia owned stations. Exposure will not be a problem for her, but promoting a new album still requires demand from programmers and now in the streaming age listeners. But at least Clarkson understands and respects the need for radio airplay in an age when most artists do not. First time hearing Love So Soft on the radio!!

    From Radio Insight: Cumulus Media’s Westwood One has announced that it has taken over as advertising sales representative for The Associated Press’ shortform news network. Westwood One will handle representation for the AP’s bartered breaking news wire service, photos, video, web content, sports scores, datasets, and audio bites. The company is also planning to expand its barter services next year including the Presidential Campaign Kit. Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., has formed a collaboration with The Associated Press’ (AP) shortform news network for ad sales representation of their bartered breaking news wire service, photos, video, web content, sports scores, datasets, audio bites, and more. AP, already on some of the biggest stations in the country, offers audio news services for broadcast, podcast, or live stream. AP is expanding its barter services in 2019, including its popular Presidential Campaign Kit. “AP is very pleased to have our diverse content set and affiliate list represented by Westwood One in the advertising marketplace. Westwood One has a rich history of providing consumers relevant news talk, entertainment and sports programming.” said Michael Fabiano, Vice President of Local Media for The Associated Press. Charles Steinhauer, Westwood One’s COO, added “Westwood One has had a long relationship with the AP, and with our entry into the short duration ad market they were a natural partner.” Established in 1846, The Associated Press is an independent, not-for-profit news cooperative headquartered in New York City, with teams in 263 global locations and in all 50 U.S. states. AP provides content and services to help engage audiences worldwide — working with companies of all types, from broadcasters to brands — and has garnered a collective 52 Pulitzer Prizes Stations interested in learning more about AP shortform barter can contact AP’s Paul Memoli at pmemoli@ap.org or (212) 621-6923.

    From Radio Insight: Summer was, over the years, a Top 40 stronghold. For the last few years, however, it’s been mostly a vehicle for Nielsen press releases about the success of Classic Hits and Classic Rock. And it’s part of why I’m rethinking how CHR might rebound. I railed against CHR’s “25-54’itis” of the early ‘90s that turned the format into Hot AC, sapping it of the excitement readily available at Country and Hip-Hop/R&B radio. I cheered for the WHJX (Channel X) Jacksonville, Fla., and WKZW (KZ93) Peoria, Ill., attempts at an MTV-like blend of rock and Hip-Hop, and particularly for WHTZ (Z100) New York, which seemed to get traction before going too far Alternative. I was 30-years-old at CHR’s nadir and I remember thinking “what 25-54-year-old is this for”? It wasn’t me. Later, though, I had to admit that through the worst of the doldrums, when many believed that CHR could disappear altogether, it was the WXLK (K92) Roanoke, Va.-type stations that lasted: heritage stations that weren’t trying to be hip. Even the first CHR rebound success story, KHKS (Kiss 106.1) Dallas, was, despite the press-release, a Hot AC at the outset, before morphing into something more complicated (adult female-friendly rhythmic pop). The first green shoots for the format were Melissa Etheridge, Hootie & the Blowfish, and Sheryl Crow. They were far better for the format than, say, Go West, “Faithful” or Restless Heart, “When She Cries,” and certainly more engaging to listeners. Some of the format’s early one-offs (e.g., Dogs Eye View or Primitive Radio Gods) had the hip credentials of starting at Alternative. But the first songs that saved CHR weren’t that different in texture from the ones that almost destroyed it. “Wannabe” and “MMMBop” took another two years to come along, and without the format’s growing momentum, there might have been no stations to play them. In reality, “25-54’itis” never left CHR. It just became more listenable. In the early days of deregulation, there was talk of cluster strategies allowing stations to commit to a 12-to-24-year-old audience. But with the exception of the early 2000s—the time before “Since U Been Gone,” remembered now (but barely) for Trapt and Eamon—CHR has benefited from the mother/daughter coalition and it wasn’t really necessary to think too much about who the format was for. The irony of the mother/daughter coalition was that neither party consistently got to vote. At moments when the music was mass-appeal, an 18-to-29-year-old could successfully represent both teens and the surprisingly robust 35-plus audience for the format. Now, that target has led CHR to a particularly mushy middle with little tempo and little variety. The format’s “what now?” songs show up too late for the 16-year-old who has known Travis Scott, “Sicko Mode” for months, but still manage to confound adults. Radio’s long-term future depends on creating products for each generation of potential listeners. But could a CHR rebound begin with making the format better now for its oldest listeners? Because they are the ones who gave CHR the wide demo spread that protected it from the vagaries of measurement fluctuations. They are the ones who turn on the radio in the carpool for kids who might otherwise ask to stream Spotify Rap Caviar. They are the ones who currently have quarter-hours to give to broadcast radio, and at this moment, they’re giving them to Classic Hits, Classic Rock, and Mainstream AC. I started to think about what “CHR for 45-54” would sound like a lot in the mid-‘00s. Then we steered into a golden age of pop music and the topic went on hold for a while. But recently, I’ve suggested that rebuilding the coalition might start with moms, not kids. A decade ago, I got this far: It wouldn’t be Mainstream AC, because it would be based in today’s hits, not library, and would have tempo and texture. It wouldn’t be Hot AC, because it wouldn’t necessarily be musically slower or less texturally aggressive than CHR. Since then, of course, Adult Top 40 has evolved to almost-CHR, and a station like WKRQ (Q102) Cincinnati isn’t that far from what I’m thinking of. It would offer the “all-the-hits” variety that adults most rhapsodize about when they talk about their influential stations, whether that was Madonna, Van Halen, and Prince in 1984 or Notorious B.I.G. and Third Eye Blind in 1997. It would have the tempo and presentational momentum of Classic CHR—something which is probably a secondary driver for today’s Classic Hits success. I can’t tell you that a 16-year-old wouldn’t find that cheesy. But maybe they just haven’t head it the right way yet. Maybe, just maybe, it would play an occasional heritage artist that came out with the right song. I’m negotiable on this one, however, since I remember how lame I thought Roberta Flack’s “Set the Night to Music” was in 1992. I can now add that this station would play “Sicko Mode.” As part of a balanced diet, that song would be no more disconcerting than Frank Zappa, “Valley Girl” was in between Soft Cell, “Tainted Love,” John Cougar, “Hurts So Good”, and Dazz Band, “Let It Whip” in August 1982. Not every song has to have tempo, bounce, and melody—just enough. And that’s not what we have now. The post Could CHR Be A Better Upper-Demo Format? appeared first on RadioInsight. more

    From Radio Insight: Days after launching Classic Rock “101.9 The River” K270BR/KISR-HD3 Fort Smith AR, Fred Baker Stations has launched Active Rock “Rock 94.1” K231BS/KISR-HD2 Fort Smith. K231BS has been running a loop of Disturbed’s “Down With The Sickness” for the past few months. It is the third recent translator launch after K270BR and Classic Country “105.5 The Rooster” K288GO/KISR-HD4 in August. After playing “Down with the Sickness” by Disturbed in a constant loop for months, a new Fort Smith radio station, Rock 94.1 FM, will begin regular programming Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 9:41 am. Rock 94.1 FM has played the 2000 hit “Down with the Sickness” by Disturbed over 70,000 times to draw attention to the station’s new format, Active Rock. Rock 94.1 FM is the newest addition to the group of stations owned by long-time area broadcaster Fred Baker, which includes: contemporary hits radio KISR 93.7 Fort Smith-96.1 Fayetteville, on the FM band since 1971; La Raza 92.3, Fort Smith’s first and only Spanish-language FM station; Hog Country 93.1, featuring the newest in country music; The Rooster 105.5, playing the very best in classic country and western music; and The River 101.9, diving deep into the classic rock vaults, launched just this past Monday afternoon. Rock 94.1 FM will feature very limited commercial interruptions, playing far less commercials than most area stations. Rock 94.1 FM’s library boasts the most current active rock songs on the charts, far more than other stations, and in uncompressed extra-high-fidelity digital audio. Rock 94.1 will have state of the art equipment, with its programming delivered to the transmitters digitally via a dedicated laser fiber optic link. Baker says the sound quality will be truly stunning. Rock 94.1 FM will also be simulcast in crystal clear digital audio, which can be received by tuning an HD radio to KISR HD-2. Baker thanked the station’s staff, whom he called a great team of dedicated professionals, for all their hard work in building and preparing the station. Baker says he wants to thank the community for its nearly fifty years of support by bringing several unique new stations to Fort Smith, of which Rock 94.1 FM will be the third. Rock 94.1 is born! Check out the launch of Rock 94.1 Fort Smith’s only all Modern Rock Station! Join us as we Burn Down the Fort!
