Podcast 83 - LPFMs under pressure

Podcast #83 – How AM Revitalization Pressures LPFM

Advice for LPFM stations and podcasters this week. A recent rule change at the FCC allows more AM stations to get repeaters on the FM dial, but may put unnecessary pressure on existing low-power FM stations. Paul and Eric discuss this situation and what LPFM stations may need to do in response, along with the new FCC Chairman’s public support for FM radios in smartphones. Then they talk about how new podcasters should be specific in choosing a topic and description for their shows, and why “market research” is a valuable tool for doing this.

    I’ve really enjoyed the two recent episodes where you talked a lot about podcasting. Great stuff! Paul asked about “noisecasting.” The first thing that came to my mind is Yeast Radio, a podcast that’s still going since 2004. It can’t really be defined by any identifiable format or genre.

    Thanks for the recommendation, Shawn. I’m checking out Yeast Radio right now!
