megatrax helps radio pros excel in a tight economy


Production Music leaders to sponsor info session at NAB Radio Show

AUGUST 31, 2011 – North Hollywood – Megatrax Production Music will be bringing the experts to the pros at September’s National Association of Broadcasters Radio Show in Chicago, sponsoring an info session featuring Geller Media International’s Valerie Geller, Aircast Custom Music’s Randy Hart, WLS AM & FM’s Jason Dildine and WJFK FM’s Brian Peck. The panel will be moderated by Megatrax’s Senior Division Manager for Radio, US & Latin America, Ileana Landon.

The session, “Tall Orders for the Short Staffed – Creating Powerful Radio in a Tight Economy,” promises to “empower radio staffers with creative solutions for Creating Powerful Radio content in a tight economy,” with “tips, secrets, and …examples of content that is powerful and impactful, keeping audiences tuned in well beyond the music.”

Says panelist Randy Hart, Creative Services Director for Aircast: “Production budgets continue to head south, making it vital that broadcasters find vendor resources with the greatest value and squeeze every cent to maximize what they spend. This panel should shine a light on some issues and ideas to help in that process.”

Adds Ron Mendelsohn, CEO of Megatrax: “We are delighted to sponsor this all-star panel of experts sharing their tips and tricks on how to create powerful radio programming, imaging and commercials. This is sure to be a ‘must see’ session at NAB Radio.”

Tall Orders for the Short Staffed will be presented from 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 15, in the Hyatt Regency Chicago’s rooms A & B. All NAB attendees are welcome, and anyone directly involved in the production process is especially encouraged to be there.
