A Discussion of gender balance at country radio: Part I

There has been plenty of debate recently challenging Country music to find a better male-female balance when it comes to radio airplay. Join us for the inaugural CRS360 webinar, “A Discussion of Gender Balance at Country Radio: Part I” as we seek to advance the conversation, by adding discussion of digital platforms, how the economy may have helped get us here, and, why Country music programmers do that thing they do. Part one of this two-part discussion will feature Jeff Green, Rachel Skaggs and John Shomby, and will be moderated by Beverlee Brannigan.

A Discussion of gender balance at country radio: Part II

We crunched 45 years of historical chart data; we consulted a PhD in sociology; we told you how radio builds a weekly playlist. And that was just Part I. Now, CRS360 takes “A Discussion Of Gender Balance” further, with Stoney Creek recording artist Lindsay Ell and Pandora Head of Country Music, Beville Dunkerley. Each has perspective to share, challenges to overcome, and steps they are taking to achieve success.
