    From Radio Insight: In the last five weeks, I’ve come across two pieces of station imaging I wanted to immediately tell radio people about. One was a legal ID on WKRZ Wilkes-Barre, Pa., which bragged that the heritage CHR was “entertaining Northeast PA by air, by stream, and by your phone.” The other was a series of listener sweepers on KRTY (Country 95.3) San Jose.The first was a listener who said he was in his 60s and was listening on Amazon Alexa. The next sweeper featured a listener who was listening on TuneIn from Asia.* Since then, I’ve listened and heard KRTY running a listener sweeper approximately every 15 minutes. Some are more straightforward than others. But there was Mindy, listening to the morning show on TuneIn from Tel Aviv. Another listener talked about listening to the station via Alexa, the station Website, and the car radio. The WKRZ ID differed from the litany-of-devices promo that we have all heard frequently in the last few years only by dint of its more distinctive wording. The KRTY sweepers are not so unlike the “I’m Sean Ross and I am K-Sean-FM”-type campaigns we’ve heard for the last 25 years. They feature somebody who listens at home, at work, and in the car, but not in those words.* Device promos are so ubiquitous on radio as to be largely unnoticeable. Other than contesting, they may make up the bulk of the station business that jocks and promos talk about. The differences in the promos I like are subtle, and certainly radio may need more than nuance to be effective these days. But I noticed them. The KRTY sweepers in particular did several things I thought were important: They engage for listening everywhere. I once gave what was clearly a wrong answer in a radio-station group meeting because I thought smart speakers were the most important place to pursue streaming. The client was most concerned about station apps and the connected car. But the battle is everywhere. And since that meeting, COVID has redrawn the battlefield. The listeners always identify themselves. They sound like real people offering credible testimonials, not the anonymous voice in the big-pile-of-imaging-work-parts declaring “I love it!” and “I listen all day, every day!”* They contain local geography, something often encountered only during a stopset elsewhere. In addition, they make a case for KRTY as an international brand, like Spotify or Apple Music. As important, in the 10 a.m. hour of KRTY I heard on May 4, it ran two stopsets. One was under three-and-a-half minutes. One was three minutes. The ads were a mix of local and national advertisers. There were none of the national ads that I’ve heard tonnage on in my recent listening; e.g., Progressive’s ad with the finicky voice actor and his exaggerated vocal warmups (an amusing series, but not endlessly so). For comparison, I went back to four other stations that I’d recently run tape of in the 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. hours. KRTY had 6-1/2 minutes of ads. Two of the stations I listened to had 13 minutes. One had 12. One had about 10:30 worth of spots, but they were all in one bloc.* In those four stopsets, I heard a lot of Progressive ads, along with Zip Recruiter, Lowes, and other streaming perennials. I heard two stopsets made up entirely of morning team promos — not bits and sometimes the same ones. I heard ads cut off. I heard songs cut off. To be fair, I did not hear a lot of filler PSAs. I did sometimes hear the other stations trying to be creative in promoting device usage. But many of the streaming experiences weren’t much better than the ones I’ve been writing about since 2007. When I chose KRTY for my short hops in the car that afternoon, I heard music most of the time, rather than finding myself stuck with the wrong streaming experience.* I’ve made many a Ross On Radio reader glaze over by railing about station streaming, or maybe I’ve just made them feel powerless to change anything. But the streaming experience is worth discussing again because broadcasters are asking for the order so repeatedly in the course of any hour. When we are not asking them to “take us anywhere,” we are directing them to our podcast platforms. If they choose one of those podcasts, they will more likely encounter 4-6 minutes of spots than 13. In other words, we are reaffirming an experience that we could be offering ourselves.* more
