More Conglomerates, Less Local Media Coming

There are some big changes coming in local broadcast media that could mean local broadcasters wouldn't need to have a local studio in the town they broadcast in. Other changes will allow more
media consolidation which will eventually lead to most broadcasters being owned by wall street media conglomerates.

A former FCC Commissioner called the changes "a virtual death sentence to local media". 

Here's an excerpt from Common Dreams:

Democratic FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn told Bloomberg that with the party-line vote to end the rule, the agency is "paving the way for broadcast station groups, large and small, to terminate studio staff and abandon the communities they are obligated to serve."

CommonDreams.org has the story about the changes coming from the FCC.

"In a series of moves this week that have alarmed free speech advocates and critics of media consolidation, the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) voted to abolish a rule requiring radio and television broadcasters to maintain studios near the communities they serve, and FCC chairman Ajit Pai announced..."

I've Been Gone For A While...

In June I suffered an accident that left me with a broken arm, back and neck. I won't go into the details but I have been unable to go to work at the radio station. I don't know when I will be able to return but I am gradually getting better. I have been able to resume my classic rock show though and this weekend will  be dedicated to Walter Becker and Steely Dan due to Becker's death last weekend.

If you are interested in the show it's 2 hours every weekend, 1 pm Saturday and 2 pm Sundays on www.radiovegas.rocks also on itunes ad tunein apps for phones and mobile devices, just search radiovegas.rocks

The show hosted by my myself and co-host Kathleen is what she calls, classic rock with a twist. We don't stick to the satellite formula of 1968 to 1989 and we break other rules. That's what internet based radio is all about. I hope you can tune in and check it out sometime.

Thanks to those that have asked about me and my well being and wished me a speedy recovery. I am working hard to rehabilitate and look forward to getting back to a more normal life as soon as possible.
