About Us

A&O&B Overview

Albright, O’Malley and Brenner are North America’s leading country radio consultants. Past and present clients include many of the major broadcasters in the US and Canada as well as small groups and independents.

The Company was formed in 1994 when Jaye and Mike merged their consulting businesses. Becky joined in 2012 and the company name was changed soon after from A&O to A&O&B.

A&O&B are experts in all aspects of programming as well as marketing strategies and tactics, social media, and digital. We excel in talent and PD/OM Coaching.  The Company also provides turn-key promotions for sales, digital presentations and programming, as well as in-depth ratings analysis and custom qualitative and quantitative projects.

We believe in high-touch and make our accessibility a priority.
