9:30 – 10:00 am:  Challenges in Local Content Discoverability – Steve Goldstein, CEO Amplifi Media  Podcasts and smart speakers open up new avenues for radio and TV broadcasters to connect with audiences on new platforms with fresh on-demand content.  But the competitive framework is completely different, with over 550,000 podcasts, big streaming services like Pandora and Spotify and 100,000 radio stations just a voice command away on apps and smart speakers.  What can broadcasters do to stay relevant and be discovered?  What content is most effective?  It’s early days on these evolving platforms, but things are rapidly developing.  This session will provide some vision along with audience and monetization strategy and guidance.
