Personal recommendation from Dan O’Day:

This Probably Is the Best Radio Video Ever Recorded.

If you’re a real “radio person,” I promise you’ll view it again and again, for years to come.

Randy Michaels is the most brilliantly competitive person I’ve ever met during my entire radio career.

He’d rather sever a limb than lose a single ratings point to a competitor.

He’s responsible for some of the most extraordinary radio successes in history.

He started in radio as an engineer. Back then, nobody ever heard of him.

Then he became a disc jockey. Still, nobody ever heard of him.

It was when Randy became a program director that, suddenly, lots of people started hearing about him..and his incredible, come-from-behind ratings successes against bigger, more powerful, richer competitors.

His success took him to the top position in Jacor Broadcasting (which grew into Clear Channel Radio).

Jacor was a name to be feared — unless, of course, you didn’t work in a market where you had to compete against them.

Here's an Legendary Example of Randy Michaels’ Mastery of the Art of Positioning.
This is a True Story.

Jacor bought a radio station in a Top 25 market, and Randy targeted the Number One, supposedly “unbeatable” heritage station there.

Until then, no other company had even dared go up against that station.

His station aired promos demanding that the #1 station pay Randy's station one million dollars — or Randy’s station would change formats to compete directly with the #1 station.

Probably the other guys should have paid the million bucks. Randy’s station wiped out the #1 station in a single ratings book.

Because the leaders at the #1 station didn’t understand the art of Positioning, they did pretty much everything wrong in trying defend against Randy’s attack.

The ultimate result? It was the (formerly) #1 station that ended up changing its format!

This incident is detailed in the audio seminar that every radio station programmer and every radio station manager needs to hear.

Who Needs to Learn from this Video Seminar?

Anyone who programs and/or manages a radio station in a competitive market.

If you have competitors, download this audio seminar right now...

...and hope that your competitors are too complacent, too lazy, or too busy resting on their laurels to learn the principles of Positioning as they apply to radio...from the master himself.

 Who Doesn’t Need to Learn from this Radio Seminar?

If you don’t have any radio competitors — and you know that you’ll never have any competition — then I can’t honestly say that you need to see this.

If you have a guaranteed, exclusive monopoly on your radio market — no competition allowed — you don’t “need” this video seminar.
