Brad Smart chats regional radio ownership with John Caruso

Former Assistant Editor

Brad Smart is John Caruso‘s latest guest on his Conversations In Noosa podcast.

Brad has worked in film as a director and producer, he’s been a journalist, broadcaster, and businessman.

His passion for radio wasn’t simply a desire to work for a radio station, Brad Smart wanted to own the station, something he discusses on the podcast.

“This podcast offers an interesting insight into what it was like for Brad to raise the capital to purchase his own radio stations and to streamline those operations so that they became profitable businesses,” says John of the chat.

“We also talk about how the global financial crisis, two major floods, and a cyclone impacted on Brad Smart’s regional radio network.”

Great podcast guest and topic, informative insight into the inner workings of a traditional medium that is still punching and providing great results for clients.

Showcasing the ‘Live & Local’ approach that is very much ingrain within the TRSN brand and all 120 x regional stations.

Regional radio is very topical at the moment and brands (nationally) need to be made more aware of the growth within regional Australia, this just highlights the passion and drive regional radio station will provide for their clients.

If you get a chance, check out KIX Country – I believe TRSN are doing a fantastic job of bring country music into the limelight, with all things country music.
