Following a proposal by the CRB Board of Directors earlier this summer, Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. is officially re-branding itself and continuing operations under the name Country Radio Seminar.
“Country Radio Broadcasters is refocusing and reemphasizing its branding under the name Country Radio Seminar and its popular acronym, CRS,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne. “Our organization and its efforts are largely CRS-centric, and that is why we decided to officially designate Country Radio Seminar as our brand moving forward. CRB, Inc. continues as the registered name of our nonprofit organization, but the website, stationery, correspondence and other affiliated brand messaging will implement the CRS logo and brand from now on.”
Country Radio Broadcasters was founded in 1969 to help support growth and education for country music, by connecting radio partners with the industry. The organization’s flagship event Country Radio Seminar has been running over 40 years, with the next edition scheduled for Feb. 22-24, 2012 at the Nashville Convention Center.
In more news from CRS, the organization today announced that award-winning futurist and author David Houle will deliver a special presentation at CRS 2012 on Feb. 22. Regarded as “the CEOs’ futurist,” Houle has spoken to nearly 2,000 CEOs and business owners on the subject of global trends and the transformative changes that impact the future. A 20-year media and entertainment veteran, Houle was part of the senior executive team that launched MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1 and CNN Headline News prior to launching his career as an author and speaker.
