The Latest From Paragon
It is always a pleasure to involve Mike Henry in the projects that we do. Mike has successfully helped us with both single song placement and long form programming and remains our ‘go to’ guy for all things radio.
Mike has truly become a partner more than a consultant. He’s smart, focused, honest and thorough. I credit him, along with Chris Mays, Scott Mahalick and our great team at KINK with helping us bring home a Marconi Award recently for Rock Station of the Year.
Mike provided strategic guidance to Clip Interactive from the earliest point in the company’s history and he continues to support the business in a variety of ways. His experience in radio and familiarity with the inner workings of the radio industry are invaluable.
WXPN worked with Mike and his colleagues on a highly successful market and music research project. We were extremely satisfied and confident with Paragon’s work in the field. The great results from the project speaks to the effectiveness as consultants and researchers.
I adore Paragon. Not only do I trust the data and the methodology when you use their research, but you also get full service when you hire Paragon….so that creative ideas and strategies become a part of the package.
In launching both 99X in Atlanta in 1992 and WRXP in New York in 2008, Mike Henry and Paragon helped me create the best market position for ratings and revenue. Paragon helped our brands through reliable audience research and sound consulting advice. I always called Mike my “un-consultant” because no one does it better.
Mike Henry helped us re-launch KKXT-FM in Dallas and has consulted us on programming and all other aspects of the radio station ever since. Within 18 months after re-launch, KXT had almost 400,000 listeners and became the most listened to non-comm Triple A station in America. Mike has been a great resource and partner as we have grown KXT into the station it is today.
I’ve worked with Mike Henry at Paragon since 2000 on a number of public media projects that range from local market projects to those that are national in scope. These projects have been critical to establishing important foundations focused on building a more viable and successful public media reaching new audiences.We’ve never been disappointed with Mike’s contributions and work.
We appreciate Mike’s ability to help us combine his knowledge of programming best practices, market conditions and professional programming techniques with our need to effect changes both through management and through the education of our volunteer staff. I can’t say enough about his approach, skill, professionalism and ultimately, the advice he gave us.
With a market leading heritage Country station for nearly 25 years, quality, actionable research is most important in maintaining that position. Paragon has been our research partner in achieving that goal.
The tremendous success we have had with the launch of 105.5 The Colorado Sound has been great. Mike and Paragon Media Strategies have been an instrumental part of the team in the months leading up to the launch and with our first months of operation. The perspective Mike brought to our planning conversations reflects his varied experiences, recognition of local needs, and his thoughtful approach.
I’ve worked with Mike Henry for over 20 years on a plethora of successful projects that included 99X Atlanta, Radio Milwaukee and KINK.fm Portland. In every case, we improved our position in the market and advanced our place in the field. He’s fun to work with, very organized, has great planning and execution skills. All that makes for easier implementation of the creative vision
