NPR Labs backs interim, immediate power hike for HD Radio. The debate over whether digital stations should be
allowed to increase their power by as much as ten-fold has taken an unexpected turn. National Public Radio’s team of
engineers had been urging the FCC to delay a decision until its in-depth Corporation for Public Broadcasting-funded
analysis is completed later this year. But NPR now says the agency should grant temporary power hikes on a case-bycase basis and as long as the interference levels are kept to what exists under the current levels. NPR Labs executive
director Mike Starling says, “It is indeed possible to boost HD broadcasting power and protect our current analog services.”
In a filing, NPR agrees with dozens of broadcasters who’ve complained the current power level doesn’t allow stations
to effectively penetrate buildings. But their engineers say the record of instances where the FCC has allowed stations
to increase power is “inconclusive.” Starling adds, “It simply isn’t necessary to degrade our analog broadcasting signals
as we bring needed improvements to HD radio coverage.” NPR Labs expects to file its engineering study finds with the
FCC in September. Sources tell Inside Radio it’s likely the FCC won’t issue any final ruling until government engineers
have had a look at the NPR Labs report. The public broadcaster says its position hasn’t changed, and it still “generally
supports” allowing HD Radio stations more power. CEO Vivian Schiller says it must be in a way that “preserves existing
analog service.”
Media Rating Council adds PPM critic to its membership roll. The Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies has
been among the most vocal critics of Arbitron’s methodology used to determine ratings in the Hispanic market. Going
forward, it will no longer be slinging arrows from the outside. It will have a seat at the table as AHAA’s board votes to
accept an MRC offer to join the industry-funded self-regulatory body. In a statement, AHAA says, “The seat on the MRC
Board allows AHAA to formally assess and render its opinion on the accuracy of PPM sampling and methodology as
well as other media ratings services.” The group continues to meet with Arbitron and hopes to “collaboratively resolve”
its PPM issues. Media Rating Council CEO George Ivie is “extremely pleased” AHAA has decided to become a member,
noting it “represents two important constituencies — advertising agencies and minority interests.” Since there are
more than 110 MRC members AHAA’s vote though isn’t likely to have an immediate impact on Arbitron’s ongoing effort
to win accreditation. But AHAA chair Gisela Girard, who is also president/COO of Creative Civilization, says, “AHAA
is encouraging each of our members to consider joining the MRC and participating in the audit process.” If Hispanic
agencies do that, Ivie says that will “increase their voice” at the MRC.
SBS’ new music feature looks to leverage its multimedia platform. For the first time since Spanish Broadcasting
System created Mega TV three years ago, it’s creating an integrated program that will reside on radio, television and
on the web. Musicians will have the opportunity to market music simultaneously on all three platforms. The first “Debut
Digital” package will feature five-time Grammy winning artist Olga Tañon. She’ll release a song on SBS-owned
LaMusica.com next week with a Rene Solorio-hosted show also being simulcast on several radio stations, and later
on Mega TV. SBS EVP/chief creative officer Cynthia Hudson says, “This opens a window for exposing our brands
and building content that we didn’t have before.” She tells Inside Radio the company is in discussions with advertisers
about sponsoring the feature, which SBS hopes will grow into as many as 15 events a year. “This is an opportunity for
advertisers to do a 360-degree campaign with SBS as they’re looking for ways to reach customers,” adds Hudson. SBS

has been slowly integrating more radio elements into its TV and internet divisions, most notably by simulcasting radio
shows on Mega TV. Hudson says the goal is to create content with all elements in play simultaneously. “You can’t
separate media today,” she says. “They are complimentary rather than competing.”
Webcasters believe new royalty deal is stay of execution. The two-year battle over how much pureplay webcasters
will pay record labels is over. The agreement is retroactive to 2006 and runs through 2015. Webcasters will have
the option of setting aside rates created by the Copyright Royalty Board in 2007 for what SoundExchange calls an
“experimental formula” that allows them to pay a per-song rate or a flat rate of 12% to 25% of revenues depending on
their annual revenues. Webcasters also agree to turnover more airplay data. SoundExchange executive director John
Simson says, “It’s a creative, groundbreaking approach that we wanted to try, and we hope it will work well for everyone
involved — the artists, labels and eligible webcasters.” Subscription services will pay per-performance fees that are the
same as those contained in an agreement concluded earlier in the year by SoundExchange with the NAB for terrestrial
radio simulcasts. AccuRadio CEO Kurt Hanson was part of the negotiating team and says, “With this agreement, we go
from certain bankruptcy to slightly profitable.” While the maximum royalty could take 25% of revenues, Hanson tells Inside
Radio it’s more palatable than the 250% rate set by the CRB. He says, “That was a death sentence.” Not all webcasters
are happy with the agreement. Live365 thinks it favors larger companies. Davis Wright Tremaine attorney David Oxenford
represented several small webcasters. He agrees the agreement is “far from perfect” but adds, “This deal presents
certainty for many webcasters — eliminating further litigation and negotiation costs while setting rates at which a class of
webcasters can go on with their operations.”
More than half of radio listeners trust what they hear, but friends are still best. A new Nielsen survey shows
that nothing can beat a friend or relative’s product recommendation. Nine-in-ten say they believe what someone they
know tells them. Even strangers’ opinions are valuable, cited by 70% as trustworthy. A big surprise was that the same
percentage sees company websites as being authoritative. When it comes to advertising, radio and outdoor are seen
as valuable by 55% of respondents compared to television’s 62%, newspapers’ 61% and magazines’ 59%. All forms
of advertising, except those in newspapers, have experienced increases in levels of trust. Nielsen’s Jonathan Carson
says the growth in a number of websites fact-checking products may be the reason by forcing advertisers to use “a more
realistic form of messaging that is grounded in the experience of consumers rather than the lofty ideals of the advertisers.”
Email, web and mobile phone ads are rated as much less reliable. Nielsen’s online survey of 25,420 people worldwide was
conducted in March and April.
Big names dominate, but there are surprises on RadioTime’s web listeners’ list. Dallas-based RadioTime has
developed technology for finding and listening to radio online. Rush Limbaugh, Steve Harvey, Michael Savage, Glenn
Beck and Laura Ingraham figure prominently in the first list of most-listened to programs. The top is dominated by talk
shows. RadioTime president Dan Halyburton says, “People tend to look for personalities rather than stations.” One
exception is National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” which ranked seventh. Halyburton tells Inside Radio one theory
music-based shows and stations were searched less is that they’re typically on strong FM signals. RadioTime says some
of what appears on the list demonstrates how its search technology helps listeners discover lesser-known international
shows. BBC’s popular Chris Moyles-hosted CHR morning show ranks 11th and BBC4’s news-drive morning drive
program “Today” came in 14th. Two “SportRadio 1310” KTCK, Dallas shows also popped up on the top 19, including
“The Musers” morning show (#10) and “The Hardline” afternoon show (#13). Coincidentally, Halyburton is a former KTCK
general manager. He says, “It’s a very popular station but it doesn’t have the best signal which could be driving some of
its web listening.” The Cumulus Media Partners station has long had a strong web following and Halyburton notes it also
heavily markets mobile listening options.

Westwood One preps for new shareholder meeting. Less than two weeks ago, a meeting had to be adjourned after
stock holders demanded more information about the company’s reorganization plan. Westwood One has filed a new proxy
package with the Securities and Exchange Commission detailing its plans for a 200-to-1 reverse stock split and increasing
the number of authorized shares from 300 million to five billion. That will help the board move forward with a secondary
stock offering to raise $50 million and allow new private equity owner The Gores Group to sell some of its 75% stake.
When the special shareholder meeting will be reconvened is still to be determined.
Annual Idaho pow-wow has few traditional media executives on the guest list. Media moguls gather this week in
Sun Valley, ID for Allen & Company’s annual five-day media summit. This year a familiar trend continues — more new
media executives are filling a swanky lodge alongside political figures and an occasional sports star. Cleveland Cavaliers’
superstar LeBron James will be there along with the main attraction — Twitter chief executive Evan Williams. The guest
list isn’t officially released but CBS chairman Sumner Redstone has made the journey again this year — where he’s
generating buzz. “I would not be surprised if there was a big CBS story,” says Magid Advisors president Mike Vorhaus,
telling Reuters, “They’re a traditional company that is in one of the most challenged sectors in traditional media today.” In
between hiking, fishing and whitewater rafting on the Salmon River, some business is likely to get done. The 27-year-old
event is best known for hatching Disney’s 1995 deal to buy ABC/Cap Cities.
St. Louis’ “The Fan” gives up its FM. In a $480,000 deal Big League Broadcasting will handoff Troy, MO-licensed
KFNS-FM (100.7) to Westplex Broadcasting. KFNS-FM currently simulcasts “590 The Fan” KFNS. One reason may be
Big League Broadcasting has a construction permit to move suburban “ESPN Radio 1190” KRFT from De Soto, MO
to University City, MO — which is smack in the middle of the St. Louis metro. KFNS general manager Dave Greene
tells Inside Radio KFNS-FM will no longer air “The Fan” sports format. Big League bought KFNS-FM & AM in 2004 for
$11.5 million. Westplex Broadcasting is a partnership between John Scheper and Steve Kaspar — the latter’s Kaspar
Broadcasting already owns country KFAV (99.9) and traditional country KWRE (730) in the St. Louis market.
Settlement leads to Des Moines sports talk host’s early return. Clear Channel’s “Fox Sports Radio” KXNO (1460)
fired Marty Tirrell in March after his profanity-laced argument with another station employee accidentally played out in front
of a live mic. Citadel-owned competitor “The Champ” KBGG (1700) hired Tirrell but Clear Channel said he had a noncompete that wouldn’t allow him to return to the airwaves until late-September. Tirrell went to court to fight to go back to
work and his attorney Anthony Epping tells the Des Moines Register an out-of-court settlement has moved up that date. But Epping won’t say to when, telling the paper, “I guess you will know he is back when you hear him.”

Marketron and Efficio Solutions agree to integrate software systems. Salespeople take advantage of one of these
systems while traffic and business office staffs employ the other. The companies believe customers will embrace the
end-to-end offering of the two integrated systems which will utilize the Marketron Exchange business systems with Efficio’s

and accountable.” Marketron COO Gary Coats adds, “The key to having an effective sales organization is access to critical
business data when and where you need it.” Marketron Exchange is used by roughly 6,500 stations; Efficio has more than
8,000 users.
Iowa Public Radio cuts 14% of its workforce. It’s part of a reorganization that began with the merger of three separate
public radio station groups into a statewide network and to reduce Iowa Public Radio’s reliance on state funding. Four of
the nine redundant positions IPR is eliminating are currently vacant. Others will be offered early retirement and severance.
CEO Mary Grace Herrington says IPR must live up to its commitments to depend less on the state for operational support.
About one-third of Iowa Public Radio’s $6 million operating budget is funded by Iowa’s university system. The gap will be
closed with member revenue, which is up 6% over the past year. Herrington credits a realignment of programming across
the 21-station network and adopting three distinct formats — news and information, classical music and alternative music.
Fire silences Oregon’s KPNW. The problems at Bicoastal Media’s news/talk KPNW, Eugene (1120) started late
last week, when the station’s main transmitter broke down in what PD Bill Lundun describes as “some sort of system
overload.” So KPNW switched to its backup — only to have that rig’s power transformer catch fire Sunday, knocking the
station off the air. KPNW is still silent while engineers work to get a signal restored — and while Lundun and other station
staffers reassured jumpy listeners concerned that “the events of the weekend were caused by President Obama, or ultraleft-wing terrorists.” Lundun says the station is considering borrowing a lower-power unit from a sister station.
Crowd-pleasing software makes its debut. Listener Driven Radio’s new software gives broadcasters the ability to
become what principals Daniel Anstandig, Lee Zapis and Mike McVay are labeling “crowdcasters.” Listener interaction
comes via mobile/iPhone, widget, station websites and social networks such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Listener
Driven Radio architect/McVay New Media president Daniel Anstandig says, “This is a new way of programming radio and
[for] growing your brand community.” Addressing concerns regarding internet, satellite and social networking competition,
Zapis Capital CEO Lee Zapis remarks, “LDR takes what’s best about the internet and puts it to use for your radio station.”
Playlists can be changed in real time based on listener input.
