For example, an Urban AC programmer may want to start the hour with a R&B sound attribute to establish a smooth R&B flow, right out of the gate. You can create a clock filter at any given position within your clock. Your filter ideas can go far deeper than sound code attributes.

If there’s any group of individuals who can put together a show, you can definitely count on radio broadcasters to create an award worthy event. Music City, better known as Nashville, Tennessee was host to the Radio Show produced by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB).

The Nielsen Audio Conference and Urban PD Clinic was held in National Harbor, Maryland overlooking the peaceful Potomac River just minutes away from downtown DC. Total Audio was the mindset from Nielsen, which enabled attendees to obtain statistics and insights from all aspects including radio, print, digital, and podcasting. Personally, this made my 3rd visit to the Urban PD Clinic in my career and every time I leave with so many rich connections, vital information on the current state of radio, and trends to watch out for in the years to come. Here are my top 10 takeaway from the 2 day mega conference.

As an On-Air Personality, Program Director, and Consultant, I’ve always preached and lived by the philosophy that the core role of an on-air personality is to be able to communicate, connect, and reflect with great enthusiasm.
