This week’s Cover Story features the “new-look” Dom Theodore as this seasoned radio pro has morphed his career into the sphere of entrepreneurial-ship. The former Clear Channel and CBS Radio programming exec is now CEO of his consultancy firm, has ownership in radio and also serves as VP/Programming for the innovative Blaze Radio Network. As always, Dom hits the issues hard. In Programming To Win, Bob Quick opts for optimism in his first column of 2014 and shares a tale from his life outside of radio. Question of the Week asks: Bruno Mars is performing at this year’s Super Bowl. Who do you feel would be other quality choices for future Super Bowl halftime shows, and who wins the game the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks? Plus, Hot Shots and the FMQB History Page. [more]
