Our second season is starting as a year of ‘firsts”.  Our first confab coverage (Morning Show Boot Camp), and this time, our first ‘dual guest’ episode.

Fred Jacobs is well known as one of radio’s leading visionaries. His JACOBS MEDIA created the Classic Rock format and with the initiation of the annual benchmark Jacobs Tech Surve, he’s been acclaimed as a pioneer in the connected car movement,  and overseen the growth of their JACApps division.

Steven Goldstein is recognized as a thought leader in audio programming, marketing and management. His track record of success spans virtually every major radio format for some of the nation's top broadcasting companies. He was a co-founding partner in Saga Communications, serving as Executive Vice President and Group PD from  986 until 2015, when he founded AMPLIFI MEDIA.  

Now these two have teamed up again for what could be a real game changer in bringing radio back into the home…with a new venture called Sonic AI.  Their goal: teach YOU the ‘skills’ to make sure your station brand(s) join the new tech parade back INTO THE HOME!

If you plan on being in radio the next year or more, this is a MUST HEAR episode!
