Radio Free America crowdfunds free streaming for college radio | Radio Survivor

Radio Free America crowdfunds free streaming for college radio | Radio Survivor | Broadcast Engineering Notes | Scoop.it

by Paul Riismandel

Dec. 9, 2013

 

Some of today’s most successful non-commercial radio stations owe much of their success to making good use of internet platforms to reach new audiences and provide ever-improving service to their own listeners. Younger listeners tend not to differentiate between a terrestrial broadcast signal and an online one, while plugged-in listeners of all ages increasingly want to listen to their favorite programs and DJs at their convenience, not at the mercy of a rigid program schedule.

 

Yet, if launching a successful internet broadcast venture were so simple and inexpensive more stations would be doing it. Radio Free America aims to be the platform that helps launch college and community radio station online with reliable live streams and on-demand archives. The crucial difference is that RFA intends to do this at no cost to the stations. The brainchild of CEO Kenneth Pushkin, Radio Free America is running an Indiegogo campaign to raise $20,000 needed to get off the ground.

A La Carte TV Pricing Would Cost Industry Billions

   

Consumers want to choose the channels they get from their pay-TV providers but such a move would not only undermine the business model for media companies, it could also lead to higher prices for customers, according to a new report by Needham & Co.


Why This Matters: Needham & Co. media analyst Laura Martin estimates that the economic costs of a-la-carte TV would be enormous because so many smaller channels would disappear – at least 124 channels – wiping out approximately 1.4 million jobs in media. Martin figured that at least $45 billion in TV advertising would be at risk.

FCC Processing of LPFM Applications Continues - FM Broadcasters Beware of Potential Interference Issues | Broadcast Law Blog

FCC Processing of LPFM Applications Continues - FM Broadcasters Beware of Potential Interference Issues | Broadcast Law Blog | Broadcast Engineering Notes | Scoop.it

by David Oxenford

Dec. 9, 2013

 

The LPFM applications are in, and counted, and the FCC is actively processing them.  A recent public notice from the FCC about the processing of these applications puts FM broadcasters on notice that they should be checking what was filed in their market areas to make sure that there are no interference issues for their full-power stations or existing translators  The FCC’s public notice about the processing of LPFM applications is available here: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-13-2308A1.pdf

 

 As you will see, the FCC is first looking to identify “singleton” applications, i.e. those that are not subject to any competing applications.  Once the FCC determines that an application is a singleton, its status in the FCC database will change from the application simply having been “received” to it having been “accepted for filing.”   The acceptance for filing triggers a 30 day petition to deny period, during which broadcasters can object to potential interference from the LPFM or for other violations of the FCC rules on LPFM.  Broadcasters should be looking at local applications, for issues like second-adjacent channel waivers or other issues so that objections can be filed during the petition to deny window against those applications that might be troublesome.
