kinosianLOS ANGELES —Having previously focused on mainstream contemporary hit radio (CHR), rhythmic CHR, and rhythmic hot AC – we turn our August 2014 PPM review attention to Spanish contemporary.

Unlike mainstream CHR and rhythmic CHR, stations under the Spanish contemporary umbrella are generally concentrated in roughly one-quarter of the PPM markets.

In fact, qualifying Spanish contemporary outlets we found are limited to the states of California, New York-New Jersey, Texas, Florida, and Nevada.

Nonetheless, it is interesting to see how they perform against the other three other formats we have heretofore highlighted.

The following scoreboards are based upon Spanish contemporary facilities that rank in the top 20 in any PPM market (6+, August 2014).

cookewriterINDIANAPOLIS – We’re radio people.  We think aloud.  So gathering this many of us in one place is bound to produce plenty of sound bites.  If you missed reports I filed earlier this week, here are my notes from:

The Radio Show wraps today.  So if you couldn’t be here – or if you could, and were attending different sessions concurrent to those I hit – here’s more of what I heard that you also might find instructive.

Talkers convention coverage by consultant Holland Cooke

 

cookewriterINDIANAPOLIS –  You too might’ve wondered, when you first heard that this year’s NAB/RAB Radio show would be held…where?  But it doesn’t take long to see how this handsome city has earned a reputation for hosting events well.  Among the warm locals greeting convention-goers: our airport shuttle driver, who asked, as we passed Lucas Oil Stadium, “You’re from New England, right?”  “Yep,” I replied.  “There’s where your Patriots lost the Super Bowl last year!”

Even before the Radio Show kicks off today, Tuesday’s RAIN Summit/Indianapolis was well attended, “our biggest yet” Radio and Internet News publisher Kurt Hanson announced.  Yesterday being the same day as Apple’s much-anticipated new product reveals reminds us why the intersection of radio and the Internet is, increasingly, the sweet spot in terms of listener time-spent and advertiser dollars-spent.
