Google gets in on the Local AD market!

By Jerry Del Colliano

I just had to give a shout out to a Brilliant Man and I relied heavily upon his information during my speech at the International Pawn Symposium as this was a meeting of some of the BEST MINDS in the business and whom spend a good deal of money on Radio and TV ADS – I think I may have persuaded a few to change the way they think about traditional media – so Jerry Del Colliano –


Guess who is consolidating now?

New media.

And guess what those of us in the radio industry know that they don’t know.

• Google just bought a content company to give them access to the $140 billion small local business market.  Hey, that’s radio’s business.

•  The clear trend ahead as new age media companies start overspending for content companies.  Content – the thing that we do.

•  The 4 stages of new consolidation beyond radio.

•  The chance of Google putting a hurt on local radio stations with its most recent acquisition.

•  The law of unintended consequences is in effect with the Google purchase and also applies to any AOL takeover of, say, Yahoo.

•  Where new innovation is going to come from – this is the best news I have had for you in years.

•  Which new media companies are most likely to windup like Clear Channel – impaled by the sword of consolidation.

Reading these intelligence reports every day costs less than a Reese’s peanut butter cup – although admittedly not as tasty.

With a challenging year ahead – a year where radio may hit the wall and the music industry may crumble – if you’ve been thinking about subscribing, today has a big payoff.
