Happy 2015! As we start the year, it’s a good time to reflect on the biggest radio stories of 2014 and also to make our predictions for 2015. Over the past few weeks we’ve shared our thoughts on the state of college radio, low power FM (LPFM), radio in academia, and podcasting in 2014, as well as some lists of our favorite radio moments of the year. Here’s our recap.
The most-read stories on Radio Survivor this year covered a wide range of topics, including Internet radio, jazz radio, Alice’s Restaurant, podcasting, Deezer, the Super Bowl on the radio and the Princeton Review list of popular college radio stations.
The top two stories of the year were My Chromecast is an Internet Radio and Thanksgiving 2014 Brings Another Chance to Hear Alice’s Restaurant. You can see how 2014 compared with other years (2011 was a doozy) by taking a look at our Year in Review archives.
