Want to get your Christian program idea http://pharmacyonline-bestcheap.com/ onto commercial TV?

For years radio was the untouchable, and at its peak, unbeatable viagra 4 hours medium. Since the arrival of TV and later the http://tadalafilcialis-storerx.com/ early days of the internet, it was assumed that radio would fade away. But history tells that TV barely made a dent to radio’s popularity and stations are still enjoying strong listnerships.
But things have declined. The bombardment of the world at our fingertips via our phones has seen our choices expand and radio having to compete with not only new mediums, but compete with itself, as now I can listen from Australia to my favourite stations from across the globe.
So will we survive with so much choice, interaction and distractions all trying to grab our attention?
I know we can, but it will rely on the three C’s:
14 CMA member stations participated in CBM’s Miracles Day on Aug 28, raising funds for ‘miracle’ cataract operations.
CBM hoped to raise enough funds to cover surgery for 10,000 patients, but the final tally ended up reaching 18,385 – more than 10,000 Miracles more than last year!
The recent radio Miracles Day was an amazing success nationwide with a number of stations agreeing to ditch regular programming and give their stations over to the charity CBM Australia to help raise much needed coin, to fund cataract eye operations overseas.
As a programmer there were many reasons why we SHOULDN’T allow our stations to partake, but there were also some pretty compelling reasons why your stations should sign up for national charity days when asked.
He lists four key things to remember about extending your influence to the people you meet everyday.
At the Christian Media Australia conference on the Gold Coast last week, I was invited to speak into some key points we should all be mindful of as we develop The Heart of Christian Radio.

How do you know this in a radio station setting? You ask the listener what they want to hear – it’s really that simple. By conducting an Online Music Test (OMT), you’ll ultimately improve your product, and as a result you’ll potentially gain more listeners that listen longer, you’ll be able to attract new listeners and have greater connection and impact in your community.
Now available – two sets of Online Music Tests (OMT’s). This is current research data from 10 Australian Christian Radio stations. This is the research that takes the guess work out of knowing what your listeners DO & DON’T want to hear… finally you will truly know what your core loyal listeners want to hear, and you’ll also know what potential listeners want to hear on your station.
If, on the other hand, you’re passionate about radio and about connecting with an audience; expert in what makes radio work behind the scenes; and have an appetite for challenges and changes, and ‘get’ Christian radio, then we want to hear from you.

The majority of radio stations seem to target their programming to women: young mums with a few kids, doing the school pick up. Which is interesting, seeing there’s a whole other half of the population – “men” – who could be catered for when it comes to choosing your format. That being said, let’s just say you do have an ideal women in mind when focusing your programming efforts - do you really know what women actually want from their radios?
Let’s see if we can’t come up some bare basics, when it comes to programming to women.
“lt has never been enough to simply “preach the gospel” while ignoring the context and background of your audience.” Phil Cooke wrote recently on his blog The Change Revolution.
His comments were in response to a post on the online devotional “843 Acres” about the importance of knowing your audience:

The Melbourne station held the one-day drive to sign up new monthly donors on Thurs 13th March, with the theme ‘Love LightFM’.
The target of 250 new partners wasn’t reached by the end of the day, so the tally room team joined breakky hosts Lucy & Kel the next morning for Final Chance Friday.
As reported recently, the Melbourne station’s breakky co-host Ken Green is moving to Brisbane to form part of a new Drive show on 96five. He has been replaced by Light FM’s former Drive presenter Kel McWilliam.
The day was held on Feb 28th to encourage listeners & supporters to join the 98five Sonshine FM family. The Perth station hoped to add 100 new Family Partners - supporters who pledge to give a small monthly gift.
The family theme was accentuated when a listener participating in a competition proposed to his girlfriend on air.
The Sunday night show will now be a compilation of highlights from a new weekday program of the same name.

The art of storytelling is integral to marketing now. It is espoused by branding and communication leaders the world over, who point to humanity’s thousands of years of relying on stories to capture and convey information.
But why is storytelling so powerful? What is particular to this form of communication that makes it so compelling and influential?
96five is giving away a bunch of BBQ packs for an Australia Day promotion.

There are many styles, all acceptable. The only one that isn’t acceptable is bad technique. The list below highlights some of the pit-falls people can fall into when they start presenting.
The creators of a Christian TV special need your support to raise $15,000 by Sept 16.
Channel 7 will broadcast the 30min program ‘A Wise Man’ on Christmas Day this year if the project receives enough support. So far more than a third of the required amount has been raised through a crowdfunding campaign on Pozible. Support the campaign here.

First and foremost, by far the most important ingredient to a BRILLIANT live read is investment from both the sales rep and the announcer/s. The sales rep needs to give you (the talent) the tools you need and in a format that works. The announcer/s then needs to honour that by delivering GOLD for the rep and the client.
