As the broadcasting platform for TheGolfDirector.com’s TGD Radio golf talk radio programming, we’re happy to report the one year anniversary just passed and the goal to bring news from American golf and around the world is being accomplished. Reaching 160 countries, all 50 United States, and over 20,000 cities, TGD Radio certainly surpassed all expectations. Early estimates of reach and interactions turned out to be extremely conservative.
“We weren’t purposely being conservative in our initial estimates,” says Jeff Gilder, producer for TGD Radio. “We knew there would be interest in our content, we just weren’t sure how quickly we could get folks to engage our platform. The first projections (that we felt would equal success) were under 200,000 interactions for the first year. We surpassed those projections in May and almost doubled in June. When we passed 1,000,000 interaction as we reached our one year anniversary, the TGD Radio staff realized the breadth of our potential. We were pleasantly surprised at the number of people who found us outside our website on the various apps now being used for smart phones and tablets.”
Targeting amateur golfers with content related to golf news, equipment, playing tips, golf history and more, TGD Radio has grown from their initial schedule of 1 show per week addressing news from Myrtle Beach golf, to now producing 8 to 10 new shows each week.
