Overview

Anyone wanting to set up a low cost web radio station will benefit from the advice and information provided by this book. Not only will you gain technical and practical know-how to enable your station to go live, but also an appreciation of the legal and copyright implications of making radio, potentially for international audiences and in the rapidly evolving environment of the web.

To succeed, your radio content will need to be carefully planned and your station properly promoted. Advice is given on taking advantage of the scalability web radio introduces for building audiences in line with your resources, for scheduled live output and for making programmes available on demand, including music, news, speech radio and audience participation. Case studies from around the world are provided to demonstrate how different radio organisations are applying the new flexibility web radio has to offer in a wide range of situations.


Together with its associated website www.web-radio-book.com, the book also acts as a starting point for locating a range of sources for further advice and lines of research.

Learn how to:
- go live with your own low cost web radio station (either managing the server yourself or using a host service)
- assess the right server set-up to handle the number of simultaneous listeners expected
- get the best sound quality to your listeners
- take account of the range of devices available for receiving web radio
- plan your station, programming and associated website
- identify and reach your audience
- build audience feedback and data into your station's strategy
- tackle the additional legal and ethical dimensions of radio on the web
- source more detailed information

Audience: Undergraduate and postgraduate students on radio/journalism courses, media academics new to the subject, radio journalists/producers/broadcasters.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like all good textbooks, Web Radio has been clearly and carefully thought through in terms of its structure and objectives, there is a clarity of purpose that makes it particularly attractive." - The Radio Journal

"The book deserves the highest attention of all those broadcasters that are already involved in radio webcasting or who want to become involved in it."
Franc Kozamernik, European Broadcasting Union

"It's a really good book - excellent if you've ever thought about setting up your own web radio station. What's a really good idea is the accompanying web site which will provide the latest info on trends, tools etc."
Reader review from Amazon.com

"Written in an accessible, user-friendly style, backed with plenty of illustrations... For anyone thinking about setting up such a service, or already involved in one but believes it might not be reaching its potential, this is a 'must read'."
Richard Rudin, in RADIO magazine

'..an ideal starting point for a study of web radio, either from a practical standpoint, or from the point of view of a theoretical discussion of this relatively new means of audio (and visual) communication. Armed with Chris Priestman's book, the aspiring new broadcaster has all he or she needs to start their own global adventure in radio.'
