  • An interesting discussion surfaced this week on media.infoIt’s all bad news on radio news bulletins: why? It’s a more nuanced conversation that that, I believe – it’s not that all news on radio bulletins is bad news, but it’s that stories deliberately slanted that way to be more exciting.
  • I took part in a future of radio webinar by the folks at Radio.co. If you’ve got 60 minutes free (wow!) then you should watch this. If you’ve more than 60 minutes free, please mail me, I’ve got some stuff you can do.
  • Want Ratings Success? My AllAccess.com column this week talks about older brand extensions. They’re bringing in the ratings all over the world.
