Over on Radio Survivor, a group blog that I write for, we're counting down the top radio trends of the past decade. The first two trends that I've reported on both have to do with some gloom and doom stories about college radio.
Yesterday I wrote about college radio tightening its playlist and today I discussed the disturbing trend of universities turning their backs on college radio.
Although it bums me out to read about college radio losing funding, getting shut down, and being overtaken by public radio content; I remain eternally optimistic about the future.
It's my mission to give more attention to independent radio and to remind EVERYONE about its ongoing relevance. So, in 2010 I'll still be doing my best keep college radio alive.
Our trend stories will continue next week and many of the pieces will have implications for college radio. I encourage you to take a look and share your thoughts about the past and future of radio and let us know if there are big stories and radio trends that we missed.
