Podcast #65 – Fall Radio Tours Preview
2 days ago
Our intrepid radio tourist Jennifer Waits will be attending two big radio conferences this fall, the 2016 Grassroots Radio Conference and CBI’s National Student Electronic Media Convention. She gives us a preview of what’s in store, what she’s presenting, and let’s us in on some of the stations she’s planning to visit along the way.
Paul shares some news from the commercial radio industry. One middle-sized radio owner has a plan to get bigger, while tripling its debt load, while the nation’s largest radio broadcaster gets ready to jump into the streaming music subscription market.
Big thanks go to our Patreon supporters who are helping to fund Jennifer’s radio tours this fall. Support from listeners like you help us produce the program and share stories of community and college radio that would otherwise go unreported.
