We thought radio in general was dying, but it’s not totally dead just yet. While Gospel Music Week no longer exists in Nashville, like it did in the 2000s, Christian Music Daily found out today that about 500 Christian music radio people gather in Orlando once a year at Disney for about $300 a pop, rather than the $1000 or so it would cost them to attend Gospel Music Week “back in the day.”
The get-together is called Momentum 2012, and will be held at the Disney Yacht & Beach Club Resort, September 5-8th. Momentum 2012 begins at 5:30pm on Wednesday September 5th with the Christian Music Broadcasters’ Networking Dinner. At this year’s conference, there will be a variety of speakers, including Eric Rhoads, publisher of Radio Ink; Mark Ramsey, Valerie Geller, Roy Williams, Jim Daly, and Alex Kendrick.
Do you listen to Christian music radio? If so, what do you like about it, and what don’t you like about it? Even though ChristianMusicDaily.com is about Christian music, we don’t listen to Christian music radio. The songs all sound the same to us.
