A now silent AM station will soon rise again. Gerard Media filed an FCC application to buy WHFB(AM) (1060am, Benton Harbor, Michigan). Gerard Media partner/GM Ric Federighi tells IRW that the radio station should be back on the air next month. Gerard Media will pay $175,000 for the radio station.

Our best wishes to Michigan City FM Broadcasters' AC-Oldies/WEFM (95.9fm, Michigan City) afternoon host Michael Little who will be off the air for a bit, while he tends to some medical issues.

LaPorte County Broadcasting's Country/WCOE (96.7fm, La Porte) will soon begin their annual "96-7 The Eagle Roof Sit". WCOE GM Dennis Siddall will sit (for the eleventh year) on the room to raise money for LaPorte County kids. The money will be spent on Christmas shopping for children in December. WCOE coordinates this fundraiser with the LaPorte Jaycees. Over the first ten years they raised over $300,000. Roof Sit will happen from September 5 through September 7.

Radio Spotlight

Name: Robb Reel
Job Title(s): Brand Manager [Program Director]
Station(s): WDWQ-FM, Q102.7
Market(s): Terre Haute
Owner: Midwest Communications

Who were your early DJ or radio station influences? (Perhaps what lead you to "catch the radio bug"?)

When I was a kid, my aunt was in a band that won a national talent contest. The grand prize was a spot on tour with Barbara Mandrell, Ronnie Milsap and Alabama - three acts that would all be CMA Entertainer of the Year at some point and should all be in the Country Music Hall of Fame - but part of the deal included airplay on the partner radio station. It took a lot of hand wringing to get Granddad to switch from WIRE, the big Country dog of the era, to that "new-fangled" FM, but we got him to flip to WFMS. As we waited to hear her song day after day, I was captivated by the Midday guy because, rather than talking AT me with the big, booming voice, he talked WITH me and drew me in with his warmth, stories from his family farm in Iowa and tales of the "stars" as real people with real lives. By age 9, I knew I wanted to be J.D. Cannon when I grew up.

I still do.

What's one thing that would surprise many people to learn about you?

I don't hold back many cards with people. I'm pretty candid about my struggles growing up, that I am very much "the white sheep" of my family, what I did before radio and what I do outside of it. The one thing I don't often mention is that I am painfully shy and I really have to muster up a metric ton of personal courage to meet new people.

Fill in the blank: I can't make it through the day without _________?

Hearty laughter, caffeine and good music, all in copious amounts.

If you had such a thing as a "typical day," please tell us about yours?

The best thing about this job is that no two days are alike. The worst part: same thing. I try to get a morning workout in then I'm in the office by 10:00 a.m., unless a remote or a meeting draws me in earlier. I'm in some sort of meeting by 10:30, be it Managers, Promotions or a Show Improvement Session with one of our personalities. Then it's writing of some sort: imaging, live liners, web copy, blogging, social media, or what have you. I insist on leaving the building for lunch every day, partly to clear the mental traffic and partly to just get out and see the listener's world for a while. That's also when I sample new music; I make better choices when I listen as a listener would, running errands and driving, etc. Since my brain is constantly doing show prep as a background process, I can get back at 2:30 p.m. and still be ready for air at 3:00. When my show ends, it's a quick supper before massaging music logs and winnowing down my To-Do List, which never actually gets shorter. The median time for me to leave is midnight; I'm just as likely to work later as I am to go home earlier.

All six of your radio stations have "Listen Live" links on each website. What has online listening meant to your stations?

The physics and geography of Terre Haute are curious things. No matter what or where your station is, building penetration is just dreadful. That's not a huge problem for the hard-workin' men [and women, too] swinging hammers and driving tractors, but as more jobs move behind desks instead of behind plows or behind the wheel, online listening has given us back the at-work advantage. We can be company for the entire workday again. Moreover, thanks to our web platforms and social media, we can provide a multimedia experience that's not confined by the scarce commodity of time. Rather than air a five-minute interview, I can tease it in 15 seconds on-air and, if the listener wants that content, she can go get the full interview while the guy who doesn't gets more music. That combination gives us layers we never had before.

How are you are getting people to continue to listen on the AM dial?

We're doing it on 1440 WPRS with a Classic Country that still includes a couple of Currents per hour and a true focus on Edgar County, Illinois, including lots of high school sports. For all of our markets in seven states, Midwest continues to care about, and be genuinely invested in, making AM work. We're not letting it go gently into that good night.

I run into an alarming number of people under 35 who have no idea what AM radio even is. That goes beyond a perception problem. The AM band has spent too many decades trying to hang onto listeners - with Beautiful Music, MOYL, Oldies and Classic Country - who are literally dying off without replacing them with younger listeners. As an industry, we can't continue letting AM be the dumping ground for formats and demos that agencies don't want to buy. We'd be better off moving all the NCE licenses there and opening the rest of FM to competition. Otherwise, we need to come up with more compelling content.

How did you first get started at Midwest Communications/Terre Haute?

Without lifting the curtain on too many gory details, and changing names to protect the guilty [not really], I was ready for a "life reboot." I was at a tipping point in my personal life, while I had maxed out my work opportunities where I was. I knew that, if I wanted my career to grow, I needed to step out into a fresh market. I also knew in my soul that I wanted to program again. Still, my situation was pretty sweet as it was, so I was being really choosy as I glanced at openings here and there. I was even a hair's breadth away from a PD job in a neighboring state, but had a terrible feeling about it; that disturbance in the Force led me to stay put. Epilogue: the guy who did take that job didn't last six months.

Soon, I saw a posting from an old coworker, Bill Cain, who was handling programming for Midwest in Terre Haute at the time. He was looking for a lot of different things as he had a few different pots percolating. Since everyone in radio always has at least one talented friend who is on the beach, I figured I would reach out. I was sure it wouldn't be anything for me, but I might know the right person or people for his needs. A couple of emails back and forth turned into a phone call, then another, then a visit, then another to meet the Market Manager. Somewhere in there, he lifted the curtain on the revamp of "News Talk 98.5 WIBQ," the upcoming hatching of "Terre Haute's Modern Rock, X95-9" and the plan to create "Terre Haute's New Choice for Country, Q102.7." I have worked for some great heritage stations in Indiana - WNDE and WFBQ, WFMS, WKBV in Richmond - but I was truly intrigued by the notion of building one from scratch. The next thing I know, I am finishing up at the Klipsch Music Center after the Toby Keith concert on June 30th around 10:15 p.m. and hightailing it to Terre Haute so we could launch at Midnight on July 1.

What are your biggest challenges, being in a small market?

Frankly, it's the connotation of "small market" itself. For me, that term only applies to the number of people living in the area. Sadly, too many use it as an excuse for poor effort and poor quality. I simply refuse to accept either. Despite fewer listeners and maybe fewer ad dollars, I just don't see why we can't do radio at the same level in Market #207 as Market #2 or Market #7. Of course, it is tougher to get the attention of record labels or grab concert fly-aways, but it can be done. Last Fall, Q102.7 gave away a once-in-a-lifetime weekend trip to the CMA Awards. This Spring, one listener won a pair of tickets to every concert the rest of 2013. Perhaps it requires more commitment and more creativity, but it brings more satisfaction when done well.

I don't aspire to move to New York or LA, though I don't begrudge those who do. I could easily see myself in Atlanta, Chicago or Detroit, but that's because I have strong personal connections in those places independent of their size. I very much enjoy living and working in a place where I run into our P1s while pumping gas or hanging out at our regular pizza joint. There's no research you can buy that's worth more than a listener buying you a beer.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I absolutely adore the "mad scientist" aspect of being the Brand Manager of Q102.7. I have been here since Day 1 and, for better or for worse, I have been the primary chef in everything created so far. It sure helps being blessed with and bolstered by a fantastic team powered by wonderful chemistry. There are some incredibly talented people on every rung of the ladder making me look good.

A radio station is not like a vending machine, waiting for people to just put in their money, you spit out something somebody loaded into you and wait to fill it up again. It's much harder and much more subtle than that. It's equal parts proactive and reactive. I learned to play chess when I was very young and that has forever shaped my thinking into being four moves ahead of the game. There's an elusive combination of planning, writing, imaging, coaching and timing for the alchemy of it all to work.

What has been your most memorable moment on the air?

The one that stands out for me is my first broadcast after the Indiana State Fair stage collapse. I had been about 100 feet away when it fell and had been much closer only 10 minutes before. I had worked alongside Glenn Goodrich, the ESG professional who was among the victims, for probably 100 events over the years. I had a lot of time between that Saturday night and our first broadcast from the Fair on Monday afternoon, including the birth of my nephew and the memorial service, yet I had virtually no idea what I would - or should - say when I opened the mic in the WFMS Super Studio at 3:10. So I just talked a little bit. I recounted the lesson I had learned watching David Letterman the night of the Challenger disaster, that to be back there doing what we do wasn't because we were callous and unfeeling but because it's what and who we are. I spoke of how, for many, live music is the greatest Earthly joy and that our best tribute to the lives of those we lost was to let the music go on. I ended with a plea to my late friend that, when I go backstage at the Great Concert in the next life, he doesn't check my credentials too closely. It's the only time I can recall starting a break with no clue how I was going to end it.

I received hundreds of calls, texts and Facebook messages that Saturday night, making sure I was OK, and I wept over the idea that so many people had worried for my safety. I received nearly as many that Monday from people praising my words, thanking me for just speaking so simply and honestly, and again inquiring of my well-being. I have described the whole ordeal as my personal 9-11 for how deeply it has affected me, still to this day. I'm just a guy on the radio but I think I said some of the right things.

What was your last radio gig, before joining Midwest/Terre Haute?

I spent 10 of 11 years at 6810 N. Shadeland in Indy. The first 4.5 years were with Susquehanna where I did Overnights on WFMS, was a Gold Good Guy, and did a lot of Production work. I was one of the folks "invited not to return" upon the initial Cumulus acquisition. I spent a great year with Zimmer Radio Group before getting to come home, initially to assist with FM Talk 93.9. During that second, 5.5-year stint, I did on-air work and produced "The John Tesh Radio Show" on Warm 93-9 before taking on Nights for WJJK, which was four years of the most fun I've ever had on-air. In 2008, I returned to Overnights on WFMS, eventually moving to Afternoons, and took over the Friends & Neighbors program in 2009. My proudest career moment so far is when that program was honored with the very first "Service to Indiana - Radio" award from the Indiana Broadcasters Association.

What's the best advice you'd give to those wanting to get into radio?

We just had an ISU "radio camp" of high school students come through our offices and I gave them these three things:

*Learn how to write well, because too many people in this business can't.

*Learn to "make the trains run on time," because not enough people in this business can.

*Learn to listen - to the music, to the research, to the ratings, to the listeners, to the market - so you can really shape your ideas and your station. In a business that involves so much talking, the ability to listen is so much more rare and valuable.

What's the most important issue in radio today?

I have grave concerns about the Performance Tax and the greed behind it. If passed and implemented, it will kill music radio, period. The irony is that it will destroy the livelihood of the very artists its proponents [falsely] claim they intend to protect.

What's your biggest pet peeve in radio?

Maybe it's a result of how I grew up, but I abhor people who were born on third base thinking they hit a triple. It's bad enough to rest on one's own laurels, but it's even worse to rest on someone else's. If you didn't build that station's great heritage, don't run around bragging about how great you are. When the toughest thing you've ever done to promote the brand is to wash the remote van, just smile and say "Thank you" when someone tells you how great the station is, then be on your way. Working at WFMS is like playing for the New York Yankees of Country radio, but that doesn't make me Joe DiMaggio.

What's your philosophy about radio ratings?

Ratings are a great tool, but if you're only living off Ratings, you're doing it wrong. Numbers can always be sifted and sorted to find something you want to say; 78 percent of all professional Men 35-44 who drive black SUVs and drink pink lemonade know that. The "drive-up window" of agency business is great but local, direct transactions are built on relationships rather than Ratings. Our Market Manager, Jack Swart, is a brilliant coach who fosters an environment for those positive relationships. With the right knowledge and passion for the product, a Sales professional can bring in the revenue irrespective of Ratings.

Where do you see the radio industry five years from now?

Sometimes I worry because I see the landscape dominated by those who see radio as a golden goose, only to strangle it with the bottom line. Too many are in this to make margins instead of making magic the way we dreamed of doing. Every now and then, though, you get to work for a Duke Wright or the Zimmers and get a reminder of what radio is supposed to be. There really are people left who are out to make good radio and then worry about making a profit rather than just people who want to make money without regard for whether they make good radio or not. Perhaps the proper avian analogy is the phoenix; we may be reduced to ashes, but radio will rise again.

Who are your mentor(s)?

I'll inevitably leave someone important off the list if I try to answer that way. I really do try to glean something every day from everyone. I am constantly absorbing, watching, listening and, I hope, learning. That said, my personal holy trinity would be Charlie Morgan, David Wood and Bob Richards. Spend five minutes with any one of them and you'll learn more than five years with anyone else. Each has particular strengths - Charlie's professionalism and sense of service are unmatched; David is one of the most creative individuals I've encountered in any field; Bob is a masterful administrator who runs a water-tight ship without choking the fun out of it - but it's the way they combine their superpowers and complement one another. They get the right people on their bus, they get them in the right seats, and then they let them actually do their jobs.

Who's your favorite air personality who isn't working for you?

My favorite personality is not on-air anymore unfortunately. She's Carrie Edwards now - she had a different last name when we worked together in Columbia, Mo. - and she's the most natural personality I've ever heard. It takes a rare recipe of talent and preparation to sound so effortless and flawless all at once. She's working for the University of Missouri now, and a busy farm wife and mom, but maybe some smart programmer can convince her to come back someday.

Why do you think radio is still important?

We've all seen the number: 93 percent of Americans use radio every week. That omnipresence positions us to impact nearly every person in big ways and in small ways. We can report on and react to the huge events, yet we can still make those intimate connections over the simplest things. We are still the gateway to new music, area concerts and local information. We are still that companion at work, in the car, in the middle of the day or the middle of the night. The report of radio's death is an exaggeration.
