Insight On Business the News Hour

Radio Stories with Jeff Stein

Perhaps the best dressed man in all of radio our guest is Jeff Stein the News and Program Director for KXEL-AM Radio in Waterloo, Iowa and the Executive Director of the Iowa Broadcast News Association. Jeff was in town for the Iowa Broadcasters Association (IBA) annual meeting. Here we talk about corporate radio, why local radio wins, offer up some congratulations to IBA award winners and...well, just talk about the back-story of why radio remains a dominant force in the face of so many other choices.
