RAIN 9/7: RAIN announces Summit speakers for panels on in-car listening, advertising, and royalties
SIGAL, KRASINSKI, OXENFORD TO SPEAK AT SEPTEMBER 28 EVENTToday we continue to roll out the RAIN Summit East guest speaker list by announcing Jake Sigal of Livio Radio, Paul Krasinski of Ando Media and David Oxenford of Davis Wright Tremaine. Our agenda is getting pretty packed, as will be the Summit itself (last year’s gathering was standing-room-only!) so be sure to register soon.
Jake Sigal (pictured right) is founder and CEO of Livio Radio and will appear as part of the “Internet Radio in the Car” panel. Livio Radio has been very involved with moving Internet radio into cars, releasing a driver-friendly iPhone app earlier this year (RAIN coverage here). Sigal has helped release a long list of consumer products, including Livio’s Pandora and NPR Wi-Fi radios and XM-brand satellite radio products.
Ando Media’s COO Paul Krasinski (pictured left) will be the moderator for RAIN Summit East‘s “Monetizing Internet Radio I: From the Advertiser’s Perspective” panel. Krasinski joined Ando Media in 2008, previously serving as VP, General Manager for Westwood One and Director of the Digital Media & Interactive Division at Greater Media.
Industry attorney David Oxenford (pictured right) joins us as part of the “Royalties: P.R.A. and Beyond” panel. Oxenford — a frequent RAIN source and trusted voice for royalty and digital media issues — is a partner of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and editor of the Broadcast Law Blog. Davis Wright Tremaine is graciously hosting RAIN Summit East’s Reader Cocktail Party on the roof of their D.C. office — just blocks from the White House!
RAIN Summit East is an official co-located event of the RAB/NAB Radio Show. It takes place Tuesday, September 28 in Washington D.C. The Summit will feature a long list of radio experts, from Bonneville president/CEO Bruce Reese to AccuRadio COO John Gehron. More details, and information on how to register, can be found here. We hope to see you there!
LANE: NET RADIO IS HOWARD STERN’S BEST BETSirius juggernaut Howard Stern has hinted that he’ll be leaving the satellite radio company at the end of the year, and may even be turning to Internet radio. Jennifer Lane of Audio4Cast argues that Internet radio is Stern’s best bet. Not only could he enjoy the unfiltered nature of the web, Lane writes, but Stern could turn his show into a full-blown “mega brand, a huge online destination” with “apps, streams, in-studio videos, side channel audio and video programming” and more.
Lane concludes (here), “Yeah, I think Howard Stern would be good for Internet radio. And Internet radio would be good for Howard.”
RADIOTIME’S TUNEIN APP LANDS FOR ANDROIDRadioTime’s newly-acquired TuneIn Net radio aggregator app is now available for Android mobile devices. Last week, RadioTime acquired the app and hired its developer (RAIN coverage here). RadioTime has actually had its own app available in the Android App Market for a while ($1.99), but TuneIn will serve as a free, ad-supported version. Mobiputing.com has more coverage here.
