eQB NOW As the SVP of Programming for SummitMedia, Bill Tanner is still playing a vital role in the radio industry today. His career is about as fascinating as it gets given his six decades of service and the several ground breaking accomplishments he’s achieved during that time. Tanner’s reputation and experience as a programmer and an on-air personality precede him and that along with the many colleagues he has collaborated with over the years are all on display in this week’s Cover Story. In Programming to Win, Richard Harker is looking at how Presidential polling numbers compare to radio ratings. Harker reminds us that in both cases, the data provided is just an estimate and to think carefully about how to interpret such numbers. Question of the Weeks asks, "Who is on your “Mt. Rushmore” of radio programmers and/or on-air personalities?" And Hot Shots goes on location at #Trendfest 2016 and This Week in FMQB History.
