Campaign Aims to Give Radio Some Limelight
Even though radio gets little to no editorial coverage here on Adrants or anywhere else for that matter unless you read FMQB, we like the medium. We like it a lot. It's got music. It's got talk. It's got news. And it's all free. For a media buyer, it's got frequency, fairly decent demographic targetability and the ability to craft wonderful promotional events.
But, as everyone obsesses over the internet and all the MyFaceSpaceBookSecondTwitterLifePownceWordBloggerPressMovableBookmarkType insanity that's been nicely wrapped with a pretty bow and a card labeled "Web 2.0," radio has all but disappeared from the forefront of, well, everything. The National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Advertising Bureau hope to change that with a new Radio 2020 campaign. The campaign will highlight radio's success stories and its involvement in culture and society. The campaign's Radio 2020 blog aims to bring an ongoing dialog about the medium to a higher level of consciousness (did we just write that blather?).
Though the antennae in our car has been broken for over a year depriving us of radio's offerings, we still dig the medium and wish it a long, happy life.
