Radio Sales Café
Networking for radio advertising sales professionals from Grace Broadcast Sales.
From David Kuehn: "Our 75th was last year and we rolled out the rates from 1941 and allowed existing and new clients to buy schedules at those rates for 30 days in Q1. Lots of the usual on air promos & hype, but the special rate card was fun, a great discussion starter and additional reason to see clients."
Our AM will be 65 this year, we celebrated the 60th with a reunion of all the former employees and owners we could get in touch with who worked here from 1952 to the present. 44 people attended and I had the original sign-on microphone on display. The local newspaper did a write-up on it.
Our FM will be 36 this year.
KEUN AM & FM
KVPI AM is 64 years old this year while KVPI FM will celebrate our 51st birthday in 2017. We have been using the AM's birthday to plan our events. We had a 50th anniversary bash by renting the Civic Centerand booking a band. We gave the bar/refreshment table to the Veterans and discount admission if listeners brought canned goods for the local food pantry. Our 60th birthday in 2013, we did a DJ reunion and tours of the station all day. Very successful.
