"As for myself, and I believe the vast majority of my peers, this text is considered 'the' text about radio station operations and the radio industry. Michael's reputation as a scholar and author in this area is absolutely number one and the quality of each edition has only improved the status of the text...If you want a text that provides a solid grounding in the operation of a radio station and the radio industry in general, this is the text to use." --David Reese, author of The Audio Announcing Worktext
From the Back Cover
Foreword by Lee Abrams! The Radio Station is considered the standard work on radio media. It remains a concise and candid guide to the internal workings of radio stations and the radio industry in all of its various forms. A comprehensive blueprint, this book details the functions performed successfully within every well-known station. Not only will readers understand how each job is best performed, they will know how it meshes with those of the rest of the radio station staff. For readers uncertain of career goals, this book provides a solid foundation in who does what, when, and why.
In a fresh and engaging style, The Radio Station, Eight Edition, details all departments within a radio station-be it a terrestrial, satellite, or Internet operation-from the inside-out, covering technology to operations, and sales to syndication. It also offers an overview of how government regulations affect radio stations today and how radio stations have adapted to new communications technologies. Drawing on the insights and observations of those who make their daily living by working in the industry, this edition continues its tradition of presenting the real-world perspective of where radio comes from, and where it is heading. The Eighth Edition of this classic text includes expanded sections on digital, satellite, and Internet radio; integration of new technologies; new and evolving formats; the uses and applications of podcasts and blogs; mobile multimedia devices; programming for the new radio formats; new contributions by key industry executives; digital studios; station clustering and consolidation; industry economics and statistics; and updated rules and regulations. The new companion website features the interviews and essays with industry professionals, an image bank, additional suggested reading, and a listing of helpful links to industry websites.
