The Week In Review: 11/5 - 11/9

This week’s eQB Cover Story features John Dowd Jr., better known to the radio/record industry as Jay Beau Jones. The 25-year programming veteran and on-air talent talks about his new book, "Heroes, Mentors and Friends," and looks at what lies ahead for his future. In Programming To Win, Pat Welsh compares the political polling process to media ratings. What are the issues that face both Arbitron and the political pollsters? What aspects behind surveying radio listeners and voters should we keep in mind while reading the results? Question of the Week asks: "What charitable organizations is your station actively involved with?" Plus, Hot Shots and the History Page.  [more]
