Well guess, what, local yokels, hate to tell you this but… You’re screwed! You bet the internet is going to hurt you.So, not today. Maybe not this year. But really soon now people in the economic bracket that traditionally has supported local public radio will all have the ability to get exactly the programming they want, when they want it, where they want it. And it will be integrated into our cars along with the traffic that is already there on the GPS.
Sure, it will actually probably take 5 years until the "tipping point" -- but why should any of us be supporting radio tower infrastructure? I want to directly support the programming, not the distribution mechanism.
NPR wake up or you will just be replaced by the creative destruction of the Internet.
