Forecast 2022 was a great event. Seeing friends in person, gathering to hear industry influencers, and sharing ideas with colleagues felt wonderful! It was a slice of normalcy to the broadcast community that we’ve all missed since March of 2020.

Forecast was terrific. The bracing realities broadcasters face were coupled with innovative strategies for growth and diversification. Forecast was thoughtfully structured to make each session valuable. Well done!

There was no session that I missed this year. It was one of the absolute best Radio Ink Forecast conferences that I’ve seen to date. They continue to get better every year.

There’s Never Been a Conversation Like This!

2020 was a year like no other. A pandemic of global proportions coupled with a summer of activism brought on by social unrest and renewed questioning of the “status quo” resulted in a call to action as never before seen, at least not in our lifetime. Brands are paying attention, and creative directors and media buyers are shifting greater focus and budget to better reach a more diverse audience and engage the same in marketing partnerships.

And Forecast 2022 is pleased to present the year’s most provocative in-person interview!

Deborah Wahl, Global Chief Marketing Officer of General Motors, sits down with American Urban Radio Networks CEO Chesley Maddox-Dorsey for an exclusive conversation on GM marketing and how broadcast fits into its strategy. They will be joined by Doug Ray, Chief Product Officer, Global Media & dentsu Americas, who has been instrumental in the creation and launch of Project Booker, an initiative focused on African American- developed and -owned content that is being distributed on African American-owned radio. Read more.

The Broadcast Event of the Year

It’s finally time to meet again!

It’s been way too long since broadcasters have been able to gather, meet, network, and discuss.

The issues. The challenges. The opportunities.
All the things that matter to broadcasters.

Forecast is back, live and in person, and bigger than ever. Read more.

Use Your Voice Where It Counts

Broadcasters need decisionmakers who understand their challenges and will listen to their perspectives with an unbiased and well-informed mind. FCC Commissioner Nathan Simington is that kind of person. He “gets it.” He appreciates the unique value proposition broadcasters offer communities across the country and the media environment in which they operate.

This FCC Commissioner wants to hear from you. Bring your tough questions for the Commission to Forecast in New York City. He’s ready to get you answers. Read more.

How 2020 Changed the Course of Advertising and What Broadcasters Need to Know

2020 was a year like no other.

Cybersecurity Starts at the Top

If there is one session at one conference you can’t afford to miss, this is it! Forecast 2022 explores the most critical challenge facing business and industry today — cyber security — with a session packed with information you need to know and answers to questions you have – or should have.

Every day we hear of another ransomware attack or data breach, and it seems that the cyber adversaries are taking over companies, catching them off-guard and ill-prepared. Cyber security expert Steve Morgan, founder of Cybersecurity Ventures and Editor-in-Chief at Cybercrime Magazine, sits down with WABC’s Juliet Huddy at Forecast 2022 for a provocative interview that will cover, in non-technobabble, how the cyber adversaries are doing it, why people and companies are in the dark when it comes to cybercrime, and what they can and should do to protect their organizations. Read more.

Forecast 2022 Co-Chairs Announced

Radio Ink and Radio + Television Business Report are pleased to announce that Forecast will be co-chaired this year by Debra OConnell, president of Networks for Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, and Bill Wilson, CEO of Townsquare Media. Read more.
