BOOK

Digital Radio in Europe

Alone among the nations of the world, the United States operates a unique in-band on-channel (IBOC) system for digital transmission of broadcast radio. Tightly controlled by established industrial interests, and not required for continued reception of FM radio stations, the IBOC system has been at best a mixed success: Though the technology delivers crystal-clear FM sound, it has been largely ignored by audiences.
(Chapter 6 – “Digital Radio Strategies in the United States: A Tale of Two Systems”)

REVIEWS

“This is a valuable book… The authors have conducted extensive research whihc forms the foundation of the text, and expanded upon that to provide an excellent working volume for the stakeholders involved… This book serves to clarify the issues and technologies which are central to understanding the digitization of radio in Europe, and subsequently the larger questions of the actual future of the medium.”

BOOK

The Palgrave Handbook of Global Radio

While radio in the United States remains a primary channel for mass media content serving millions of listeners, the industry faces challenges to every aspect of its continued well-being. Contextualized in the frameworks of regulation, technology, commerce and culture, the industry faces multiple challenges as it navigates the rapidly evolving environment of media in the decades ahead.
(Chapter 30 – “U.S. Radio in the 21st Century: Staying the Course in Unknown Territory”)

REVIEWS

“This work is an excellent reference on radio as it is known around the world; it has a clear organization and topics are easy to locate by means of a useful index. The book would be well suited as a text for a university course on comparative media or international broadcasting.”
