Albright & O’Malley & Brenner Present the 21st Annual Pre-CRS Seminar
Co-Sponsored with Big Machine Label Group's Republic Nashville

Jaye, Mike and Becky have announced that it will take place on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at the Ford Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame from 9am-12:30pm.  This event features sessions addressing personal career growth, important topics facing country radio and radio in general. 

Guests will enjoy a performance and meet & greet with Republic Nashville's hottest new group A Thousand Horses


The A&O&B team will also present the first results of their 10th annual online perceptual study, “Roadmap 2015”, including Country P1 trends in music, digital consumption, social networking and more.  Data from thousands of P1’s from across the U.S and Canada will be included. 

“Over the past years our presenters have included branding experts, talent coaches, researchers and even a politician,” said partner Mike O’Malley. “It’s a half-day of thought-provoking and actionable sessions that help set the stage for CRS.”

Brenner adds, “Today's hectic and demanding schedules often prevent valuable Face time with peers.  This is an opportunity to share, learn, grow and reenergize for the new year!”

BMLG’s Republic Nashville returns as the music sponsor for the event, including a photo op and special, intimate performance from A Thousand Horses.

The agenda and list of presenters will be announced shortly.

The A&O&B Pre-CRS Seminar is free and is open to all clients as well as to broadcasters in non-competitive situations. You can RSVP to aobprecrs@aandoandb.com.

You Can and You Must
If you work in Country radio, you absolutely must review Becky Brenner's country-specific recap of Jacobs Media’s Techsurvey9; especially if you are a Brand Manager, On-air Personality, Promotion Director or Digital Creative Director.   The findings will not shock you but they will certainly reaffirm what we veterans have known for a long time; Country is a mainstream format with passionate and engaged listeners, who are just as tech savvy as any other format.
