Stage 2
• you have identified and executed a program format that is unique to the market and
speaks to the psychographic makeup of your primary audience
• you have identified and executed opportunities - outside of your high-listening hours
to address secondary and tertiary audiences
• you employ "best practices" in programming (imaging, scheduling, production and
presentation)
– you present strip and block programming - limiting quilt programming
– you offer consistency in format and sound

• Mixed Format: The diversity of programming is a direct reflection of
WMMT’s commitment to serving as a voice for each and every
segment of our local population, to giving folks a means to play and
hear the music they love, to keeping our traditional culture both
alive and thriving, and to providing the people of Appalachia the
means through which to tell their own story to listeners both across
the holler and around the world.

Memo to WBGO Announcers:
Our audience includes both jazz lovers and curious listeners.
We offer a mix of new and familiar music to engage them, then draw them back to WBGO
Since music scheduling impacts the time listeners spend with us, we follow an hourly clock and regularly evaluate our
mix of music
Following this new format clock is mandatory.
Take your time to get used to it, and ask questions. And as always, there are no substitutes for quality recordings and
performance. Time your sets, plan your hours, plan your breaks, and pre-read all copy.

Radio Researchers:
P1=Good
P2, P3=Vital 2 Growth
P4
Based on these findings:
we have adjusted our format
clock to focus on creating
jazz sets with elements that
appeal to “Heavy” jazz
lovers, yet keep the “High”
and “Moderate” listeners
interested and engaged

Jacobs Media constructed an hourly clock:
Their goal was to create a music flow,
or sequence of music, that best
appeals to our listeners.
Jacobs Media stressed:
It is important for the WBGO
program director, music director
and air staff to have an
understanding of this genre
pecking order in:
• choosing music
• considering concert and
festival sponsorship
• other considerations
