The Changing Broadcast Scene
The last year has brought a dramatic change in listener habits. I believe commercial radio, both AM and FM, is in serious trouble. It all began with the communications act of 1996, when the FCC allowed multiple station ownerships. People under the age of 35 don’t know that AM radio exists, and many kids that formerly listened to rock/rap FM radio, now listen to thousands of songs on their iPads/iPhones/iPods/Clouds/MP3 players/cell-phones. I believe the internet and satellite radio stations have bright futures because they off a wide variety of formats no longer available on commercial radio. Technology has advanced to the point where you can listen to your favorite internet stations in your car and the internet is totally portable.
In closing, thank you for making TheBreez.com one of your favorite internet stations.
