On all my travels of late, the one thing I notice the most while in the USA is how many markets now have FM based talk radio and sports talk radio stations.
This hasn’t here due to the crazy ownership regulations the government has in place and I wonder if the law is actually killing interest by discouraging better content and distribution.
Their are laws here on how many stations a company can operate in a given market and because the fm stations do well there is no pressure to go to talk format when the radio model is working.
It appears the fm talk model is thriving in the USA and here we are stuck on am.
Any thoughts on whether you’d listen more if talk radio was on fm or if sports radio was on fm?
I think I’d listen more.
