It would have been quite easy and understandable for radio legend Alex Bennett to take leave and retreat from the business in which he has been an integral part for several decades.
After all, the legendary broadcaster was years-old when Sirius XM unceremoniously pink-slipped him last June after more than nine years of service at the satcaster he turned 74 two months ago. We are in the process of fully integrating the CV business into SiriusXM, and its financial results are embedded in our guidance today.

This story goes to show how even a seasoned pro like Philadelphia sports talk host Mike Missanelli can make the mistake of engaging with a critic online. This individual has been harassing Mike by email for several years, which is cause for concern, and we are working with Mike to try to identify this person and stop the abuse. The content of his emails is unacceptable and does not reflect our values as a company. Mike has been suspended and understands that future similar conduct will not be tolerated.
In announcing the hiring of three new regional digital directors, Beasley reveals its dedication to digital sales efforts. In a statement, vice president of digital Stacey Sedbrook speaks about the expectations after bringing Eddie Thorpe , Adam Meltzer and Carolyn Cope aboard.

One of the leaders in college sports play-by-play rights is adding 41 schools to its roster with the acquisition of Nelligan Sports Marketing.
Learfield Sports will now hold the multi-media rights to 92 schools, which puts its total above that of its fiercest competitor — IMG Sports , which holds the rights to 79 schools. This was right down the middle of the fairway for us. I am a big proponent of on-air personalities getting the proper recognition for their efforts -- and the National Radio Hall Of Fame is the natural place to do that.
In last decade, the National Radio Hall Of Fame has created a physical place for itself in downtown Chicago; we dedicated a floor inside the Museum of Broadcast Communications -- a special place where consumers and radio lovers can visit every day of the year and actually see the greats who were inducted into the National Radio Hall Of Fame. And not just see their names on plaques, but hear their bodies of work. For visitors, there's a radio studio to see what it's like to be on the air, and another fully functioning studio for use by any station or program seeking a Chicago remote location.
The audio elements make it a terrific experience for people, who are also visiting other parts of broadcast museum, such as the TV exhibits. So the biggest change has been its physical manifestation. The other big backdrop in our world has been the further consolidation of the radio industry. A prevailing question arises on how much talent is getting the chance to develop, both on a local level and a national level. To me, this just underscores how important the relationships are between air personalities and listeners.
Over the last 10 years, we've seen the invention of Pandora, iTunesRadio and Spotify. Radio broadcasters have been doing new online experiments with music play, such as iHeartRadio, but all of that only raises the stakes in terms of stickiness between the listener and the station.
It can no longer be how great the music selection is, since everyone essentially has the same music. It's now up to the personalities to guide the music. That's very true, but that's just starting the point of the conversation. The goal is to have truly great radio personalities who can break through and connect with listeners in such a way that it overrides the barriers - be they PPM or longer music sweeps that lead to less development time. The truly great ones need to be recognized and incentivized, and one of the rewards for them should be industry recognition.
That's why we've made a concerted effort to make the National Radio Hall Of Fame more impactful in the years to come. For the first time in 26 years, the induction is taking place outside of Chicago - this year in southern California. We feel it's a better way to introduce the Hall to those who work in the Western half of the country, who are not as inclined to travel to Chicago.
The people who are coming will be able to see a simulated tour of the Hall of Fame, as well as enjoy the special induction ceremonies. This will be a black-tie event time where both the inductees' family members and people in the radio industry gather together to enjoy special moments with the seven personalities who'll be inducted this year.
They represent a diverse range of talent -- Jon Miller, who continues to do play-by-play for the San Francisco Giants; Stan Hubbard, who passed on years ago, was the purveyor of the first commercial radio station in KSTP-A; the man who made more great commercials than anyone, Dick Orkin; a morning team in Charlie and Harrigan that personified all great morning show duos; Barry Farber, who has been involved in radio for something like 50 years; This American Life's Ira Glass, one of the greatest storytellers in radio; and Agnes Moorehead, a legend in the early days of radio drama.
You can do something about it. You can make the nomination process and the voting process as transparent as possible to the entire industry. In the years to come, I intend to make the nomination process even more open to encourage industry-wide input. Our nominating committee will be larger and more inclusive, ideally with someone from every broadcast company as well as personnel from the radio industry at large. We want these individuals to commit to a two-to-three-year term, so we can create a tradition and a precedent, so someone who misses out one year can be re-nominated and voted in the next - and have them eligible for several years in a row before that expires.
Voting is one part of the process that should be open to the public. The nominating committee knows the radio industry well enough to take into account the entire body. I got into the business of Sound Mind because I love working with individual radio personalities and the best production companies in the world. After serving the radio industry for 20 fantastic years at Premiere, I felt the time was right for new leadership to take the company in a new direction to continue its greatness, while I chose to focus on fewer personalities to make sure their careers are maximized in terms of relating to their audience, station affiliation and their advertiser relationship.
Sound Mind is the place where I can continue to do work with radio personalities and production companies to make sure they have every opportunity to reach their potential. It's very hard; the competition to earn their trust can be very heated. But there are a number of places you can go to find really talented individuals who make a difference on radio and are just as plentiful as ever before.
Radio comes first in my mind, but a great personality has the unique ability to reach a significant audience. I have the most passion for personalities who are interesting just by being themselves; they have the ability to create a large social media following. Like great writers, they're visionaries who can be successful on all kinds of visual media, including channels on YouTube and other hour media worlds such as social media.
A personality who can do more than one thing really well becomes that much more interesting. I have a unique capacity to do a high threshold of work. A lot of that is because I don't consider what I do as work. I love what I do; I'm blessed to be in this industry and not digging ditches.
I'm not doing any heavy lifting; I'm actually doing something to bring entertainment to other people, which can be monetized by advertisers. It doesn't feel like work whether I'm running TheBlaze. No, for a couple reasons.
