OAB Announces Mark Ramsey Will Be First Guest Speaker at Connection 2010

The Ontario Association of Broadcasters announces Mark Ramsey, President of Mark Ramsey Media, will be the first guest speaker at Connection 2010 on Thursday, October 21st at 10:15 a.m.  Ramsey’s presentation “Success in the Post Media Age” will address new opportunities for broadcasters in a new era where everything and anything can be media.

In this presentation, Ramsey will discuss new opportunities for broadcasters in this new and exciting post-media age. He will answer the question of whether or not this is an age of decline or if it will be a tremendous renaissance for broadcast media in all of its shapes, forms, and platforms.

Mark Ramsey heads his own media consulting firm, Mark Ramsey Media, in San Diego, CA.  He is also head of the US division of Radio Intelligence, one of the leading strategic research advisors to broadcasters worldwide.  Ramsey has worked with several television and innumerable radio broadcasters over his career, including all the biggest names, from Clear Channel, CBS, Bonneville, Sirius XM, and Greater Media in the US to Corus and now Astra Media in Canada. Clients from outside broadcasting have included EA Sports and Apple.

Recently Ramsey has been in strong demand as broadcasters recognize the critical importance of integrating their strategies with digital opportunities which completely redefine the meaning of “radio.” Mark is near the center of the re-creation of media and broadcasting.

Ramsey has authored two radio industry bestsellers, “Making Waves: Radio on the Verge” and “Fresh Air.” His blog at markramseymedia-dot-com is among the most popular in the industry, and he has a new TV series on AllAccess.com called “Area 51.”
