Forum 360 Gives Superbowl a Run for Its Money

Last year’s Super Bowl surpassed the record amount of money spent on commercials, with a record base price of $4.5 million per commercial. The cost of a 30-second commercial now exceeds $5 million dollars. That gives the sponsor 30 seconds to tell their story for five million dollars, which comes out to $166,000 per second. Forum 360 gives guests in Northeast Ohio 26 minutes to tell their stories. While we are not watched by some 100 million viewers as is the Super Bowl, our shows continue to highlight what makes our area interesting and relevant...and it does not cost $166,000 per second!

Recent Forum 360 shows we have taped include: effective meetings, an Israeli perspective on America,the latest innovations for hair growth, human trafficking, and the Summit County Historical Society.

Each year we try to add one or two hosts to our rotating Forum hosts. An inquisitive mind, being able to think on your feet, a flexible schedule and the desire to do your “homework” for each show are the most important qualities in a host... the rest can be learned.

Each show will air:

  • PBS/Fusion channel 45/49 on Monday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 5 p.m.
  • WONE FM 97.5 Sunday 6 a.m. WAKR AM 1590 Sunday, 5 p.m., Monday 12:30 a.m.
