Long before Garth Brooks made Country cool, Shane Media programmers were guiding Country radio stations to the top of the ratings. Once the 1990s Country boom was over, Shane Media clients stayed at the top, because our approach to Country is research-directed and listener-driven. In weekly custom music calls we combine our national research information with local input to shape music rotations that make each station uniquely responsive to the local audience.
Contemporary Hit Radio is for 28 year old women who no longer think like teenagers but want to wire in to today's music just like they did when music was the center of
their lives. Shane Media invented the Modern Hits format Radio X® then evolved the format to today's target audience. In weekly custom calls we combine our national research information with local input.
Shane Media programmers hone the music mix, then put our marketing expertise to work, mixing and matching direct marketing, television, and promotion to deliver the message. We conduct weekly calls with clients using both national research and local feedback to best serve the local audience.
Shane Media News/Talk stations play the hits by consistently talking about the right things in the right way. Our clients get their own weekly Show Prep newsletter, filled with topic ideas, suggested questions, interview contacts and phone numbers. We work with hosts one-on-one, develop their topic selection skills and teach them how to get the most out of any show topic.
There are three requisites for effective research:
1. The right questions.
2. The right sample.
3. The right interpretation.
Your success requires the application of all three elements. Let us show you how Shane Media's powerful research and personal service can dramatically increase your success.
Why Shane Media and not a research factory? Because there's no "off the shelf" questionnaire in Shane Media research, no boilerplate.

Custom-created research from an independent company, not owned by your competitor.
A full examination of your station's programming and positioning, and how it stacks up against the marketplace.

Focus Group Discussions:
An opportunity for a qualitative view of what makes your station tick. What people like and dislike. How they feel about what the station provides.
We probe respondents one-on-one to examine their habits and their feelings about your station. The intensity of questioning and the length of the interviews makes large sample bases difficult.
