Pending Business: Stop the Whining! Radio sales pro Steve Lapa writes in today’s column that, unfortunately, throughout his marketing work – from major market managers to top-tier sellers – “whining seems to be in vogue and contagious.” He adds, “In my recent experience, whining as a sales strategy typically surfaced somewhere in the process of negotiating, when sellers and/or managers lose focus of the win-win goal and rely on emotional triggers.” Read his column here.

Monday Memo: What’s in a Name? Consultant Holland Cooke continues his month-long series “Inflation Hacks, tips for saving your listeners (and yourself) some do-re-mi.” This week’s column unlocks savings by deciphering “Best by…” and “Use by…” and “Expires…” labels. And ARE those lower-cost store brands really name brands in disguise? Read it here.

WHAM, Rochester Celebrates 100th Anniversary. Heritage Rochester news/talk WHAM-AM celebrates its 100th anniversary on air today (7/11). The iHeartMedia station debuted on July 11, 1922, under the call letters WHQ. In honor of the station’s anniversary, Rochester Mayor Malik Evans is declaring July 11, 2022, as “NewsRadio

WHAM 1180 Day” in Rochester. In addition, News Radio WHAM 1180 will continue to celebrate its anniversary on its podcast “WHAM @ 100: An Oral History,” a weekly podcast hosted by Joe Lomonaco that features rare and never before heard archive recordings, new interviews with former, and current, WHAM staff, and stories about what WHAM means to the community it continues to serve. iHeartMedia Upstate New York president Robert J Morgan comments, “NewsRadio WHAM 1180 has been a friend and source of information to generations. With nearly 1,000,000 newscasts and even more conversations over the past 100 years, this iconic station has stood side-by-side with our listeners in good and bad times. Always present, always relevant, and always trusted.”

‘In the Garage’ Program Celebrates One Year on Air. Picture above is WRVA, Richmond afternoon drive host Jeff Katz (right) with local mechanic Stan Andrewski (left) as they celebrate the first anniversary of their WRVA Saturday morning car show, “In the Garage.” Katz tells TALKERS magazine, “We grew up loving Click and Clack [Tom and Ray Magliozzi, hosts of the legendary NPR program “Car Talk”] and we hope that we’re continuing to fulfill the community’s need for honest car repair advice. No bakery would make a cake in the shape of a transmission to celebrate the one year anniversary of ‘In The Garage With Stan & Jeff’ so Stan and I just enjoyed some Boston creams from Dunkin’ while hoisting a few iced coffees to salute The Tappet Brothers and get rolling into year number two in the garage.”
