Krantz, Harris, AdLarge, Country Aircheck Offer Studio Dashboard

KMG Networks, Harris Media, AdLarge Media and Country Aircheck have partnered for Country Dashboard, a customizable and interactive dashboard delivering up-to-the minute news, audio, traffic, weather, sports and other information directly to radio studios. Modeled on Harris Media's Anchor Dashboard, the Country Dashboard gives on-air Country personalities similar real-time access to timely content, and gives programmers real-time access to their on-air staff. "When KMG's Gary Krantz showed me Harris Media's News/Talk dashboard, I immediately knew we wanted to partner to bring this to Country," says Country Aircheck Publisher/CEO Lon Helton. "The country music world moves fast, and Country radio has always prided itself on being at the front edge of innovation. We're thrilled to continue the tradition."

"The Anchor Dashboard platform has been a game changer for News/Talk stations, and many programmers shared a need for a similar service designed specifically for music stations," Krantz says. "Country is our first brand extension and there is more coming. Lon Helton and his team at Country Aircheck are the gold standard for country news and access. Partnering with them for our content ensures that stations will have the biggest stories in country music immediately, including in audio format, for their air, websites, apps, and social media. It's the next generation in show prep."

"The instant delivery of superior, relevant content and audio is going to make Country Dashboard a big part of the Country radio landscape," says AdLarge SVP/Business Development Frank DeSantis. "We are excited that our advertisers will now have increased reach to this vital audience." For details, contact Krantz or Helton.
