One to Watch: Radio, New ICTs and Interactivity by Bruce Girard

By Bruce Girard

Radio networks for replacing details and programming were round virtually so long as broadcast radio itself. the combo of the web and broadcast radio now bargains a brand new and powerful diversity of probabilities for improvement conversation. Broadcasters who used to need to trip for hours to discover a public library to investigate a programme, now have immediate entry to the net; and nationwide, local and international radio information and substitute views can be found to even the main distant groups. The radio/telecommunications blend helps preserve groups jointly regardless of the distances imposed by means of migration. The instances awarded during this booklet are one of the first examples demonstrating the worth of converging radio and new ITCs for improvement. The publication argues that radio may have even larger value and price in future years. accordingly we think that radio is the single to observe.
