The company’s annual Techsurveys in both commercial and public radio have been widely quoted, serving as the template for strategies and tactics. For the last three years, Jacobs Media has custom created a version of this survey for Christian music stations. Fred’s mobile app company, jacapps (JAKE-apps) has been at the forefront of connecting radio with the mobile revolution.
