  • Callout allows you to test up to 40 songs per round; it does not include perceptual questions
  • You can help craft the breakouts you see in the data; CMM will only display breakouts with at least 15 participants
Project Contact: Caroline Thyen


  • All OMTs come with a standard package of perceptual questions; only OMT600 can insert additional questions in exchange for fewer hooks. CMM no longer delivers perceptual summaries - data delivered electronically via Analyst
  • More hooks = longer time to field
  • Most stations receive a pre-test and post-test analysis to help with implementation

Focus Blog

  • Focus blogs are one of the most hands-on projects CMM offers - both between CMM/station and CMM/participants
  • CMM will work with station to create the ideal screen, questions, and presentation format for the final product
  • Shorter, quantitative-based studies can be used as a follow-up or a precursor to a blog project as needed
Project Contact: Kellan Asbach

Talent GPS

  • Talent GPS offers a quantitative, 100-person sample
  • Participants screen in based on listening to our show
  • This study can be completed in one online session, rather than over the course of a week, like in a focus blog
  • Results include a comprehensive presentation and deck for management and a separate training session and deck for talent
  • The price-point for the Talent GPS puts it in the reach of most shows, stations, and markets
