The WSJ today has a story on the HD Radio Alliance that I posted about yesterday (no link love for the WSJ unless they free their content).
In the story it says:
Mr. Field (CEO of Entercom) said the industry group will roll out a substantial number of
new stations to fill in gaps in existing offerings in each radio
market. For example, he says New York City will get a country music
station, which it currently lacks. There and in other cities, radio
companies will offer stations devoted entirely to niches such as
reggae, blues and comedy. The group plans to announce specific plans
early next year.
I don’t love country music, but I am sure there are literally tens of thousands of New Yorkers who do. HD is bringing the music they love to the free airwaves. Nice.
