As thousands of radio industry personnel do each day, I climbed on the internet and made my way from one industry trade publication to the next this morning. Its a ritual. Outside of communications from peers, this is the sole way I keep abreast on what radio industry executives deem important – or what the editors of each radio industry publication see as information needed by radio executives to maintain a cutting edge in the business.
For years I looked at these publications hoping to see information on a growing internet radio industry. It was an oncoming train that needed to be discussed, yet never seemed to make its way into the radio industry trades in the early years. We all know where that led radio.
