With the recent acquisition of Telemedia, Standard Broadcasting is the largest radio company in Canada and the third largest in the world. Standard owns CJAD Montreal, the number one AM Talk station in North America often claiming a 35 share of audience in morning drive. CFRB Toronto is Canada's first talk station and the prime source of talk entertainment in the nation's largest city. The company is owned and operated by the visionary Slaight family. Gary Slaight the CEO is a client who demands the best from co-workers and consultants. Let's put it this way, if a company consults for Standard, excellence is assumed.

This revolutionary station was the first in America to adopt a 24-hour a day, seven day a week format of talk programming aimed at 25-44 year old adults on FM. Prior to 1990, all talk stations appealed primarily to adults over 55. They were on AM. Sabo Media invented a format and marketing plan for the station. Now, the station now has 923,000 weekly listeners, which would makes it the most listened to FM talk station in the world. (Yes, more than any station in Los Angeles or New York City.) Talk is a more profitable format than music because it can super-serve advertisers with a wide range of promotional support. The talk audience is comfortable with a high number of commercials per hour. Owned by Millenium Broadcasting, lead by Charles Banta, New Jersey 101.5 is entering its second decade of profitability and association with Sabo Media.

Apollo is a leading investment organization with positions in Vail Resorts, Breckenridge, AMC Theatres and many other family oriented entertainment showcases. Sabo Media works with the Apollo team to create new, innovative means of attracting and holding family entertainment revenues.

Under the leaderships of marketing visionary Rick Pascocello, Sabo Media helps get their book titles into the on-air content of top radio stations throughout America. Sabo Media uses its proprietary system called THE REF, Radio Effectiveness Factors to determine which radio stations and personalities actually move product off the shelf for advertisers. The result is major sales improvements for the books sold through our system.

Many of our clients remain confidential for competitive reasons. We retain our clients for an average of eight years because this is viewed as a partnership. We also do something that is not always safe, we tell our clients the candid truth. It would be easier to tell clients what they want to hear. Our clients appreciate our candor. They save time and money from our quick, accurate appraisals of situations and opportunities.

SABO Media makes media work.
