1 minute to showcase a 3-4 hour show ? Thats like watching 1 minute of Gone with the Wind to see if its worth and Academy Award.

@Chunk Tuna – it’s easy to squeeze in a 3 – 4 hour show into 1 minute. The Executive Producer, Audio Producer and Content Director will be across it all and know what to choose. Keep your on-air talent away from selection as their ego will get in the way.

Hot Tip for everyone: Use the best of the best of the best audio you have used for a regular show promo. You don’t need the promo shell. Don’t forget your written entry will help support your audio entry.
