If podcasting has moved into the mainstream during the past few years, 2017 could be the year when it becomes a major opportunity for radio broadcasters.
“Broadcasters Meet Podcasters” is designed to combine the energy and electricity of the podcasting space with the expertise, talent, and reach of the broadcasting world.
Jacobs Media President Fred Jacobs explains, “We loved Podcast Movement in Chicago last year and were struck by the breadth and energy of the space. The goal is to get radio broadcasters involved, given the industry’s ability to create compelling audio content, promote it, and generate revenue around it. It just makes sense to bring these two worlds together to help broadcasters – and podcasters – elevate their game.”
Jacobs Media’s Digital Dot Connector, Seth Resler, is a podcasting veteran who works with broadcasters to shape their podcast strategies. He will be an integral part of the Broadcasters Meet Podcasters track.
Resler comments, “More and more broadcasters are trying to figure out their podcasting strategies. Our sessions at Podcast Movement will provide solutions that anyone in radio can take back to their stations and implement.”
Podcast Movement 2017 runs August 23-25 at the Anaheim Marriot in Anaheim, California. Jacobs Media’s “Broadcasters Meet Podcasters” track is scheduled for Thursday, August 24.
