CRB/CRS President of the Board, Kurt Johnson, comments the mission of CRS:

“The mission of CRS is to educate and connect the Country Music community, and 2020 will be a standout year.”

Today’s announcement of panels and speakers adds to the list of previously released CRS 2020 agenda content, that includes four artist keynote sessions: Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Eric Church, and Carrie Underwood.

One of the most discussed topics in our industry is female airplay disparity at country radio. To more thoroughly examine the issue, CRS has expanded this session to 90-minutes.

Attendees will hear from programmers who have been at the forefront of launching new artists, and how labels, streaming services, artist managers, and even an artist herself (TBA), have been working through this challenge during their respective careers.

Radio Advertising President/CEO Erica Farber will spearhead a discussion featuring three of the industry’s most thoughtful leaders: Beasley Media Group CEO Caroline Beasley; Cox Media Group EVP Bill Hendrich; and Hubbard Broadcasting Chairperson/CEO Ginny Hubbard, who will discuss management and transformation in 2020.

Learn how these executives are operating in a multi-faceted media landscape and what audio today means to listeners, advertisers, and their local communities. CRS attendees will walk away with insights to implement in local markets, stations, and companies.

Building off the recent CRS360 webinar on podcasting, “In Pod We Trust” will take a more in-depth look at strategies for content creation, potential monetization, and marketing a podcast.

Midwest Communications Corporate Country Brand Strategist Tom Baldrica will moderate; panelists include Jingle Punks Co-Founder/COO Jared Gutstadt, “All My Favorite People” podcast host Ashley Eicher, and Anchor Head of Content Partnerships, Armand Wilson.

Country Radio Seminar is the premier educational and networking event for Country radio and music industry professionals, offering attendees access to informative panels, countless networking opportunities, prominent speakers, research presentations, and intimate performances from some of today’s biggest stars and emerging artists.

Panels at CRS cover a broad range of topics relevant to today’s Country radio industry, including social media and digital innovations, PPM, brand strategies, leadership skills, consumer research studies, the relationships and economics of the radio and record industries and much more.
