Buckley will Use PPM in NYC 

Buckley Radio, a Top 50 radio broadcasting company that owns 20 stations and the WOR Radio Network, will begin using the Portable People Meter (PPM) for audience measurement in a multi-year agreement with Arbitron for its audience measurement services.

KPAM moves forward 

Pamplin's new studios would be extensive: two on-air studios, one control room, one news anchor booth, one full newsroom, one traffic studio, three production studios, one master control and a server room. In the end, the upgrade positions the station to be ready for the challenges of the future.

Arbitron is field testing an audio matching capability to add to the Portable People Meter (PPM) electronic ratings system that would allow the PPM to track audiences to radio stations that choose not to encode their signals.

Sign Off 

The computer hard drive is 50 years old this month. Take a look at the IBM RAMAC, which held 5MB of data and was the size of a refrigerator.

Complete control 

This national, progressive-entertainment, talk radio network--known for its outspoken personalities--launched in March 2004. There's a lot going on in this facility, and thanks to digital routing, Air America Radio maintains complete control

Don't Settle for McRadio 

McRadio that is produced in look-alike radio factories seems to be the norm. Lincoln Financial Group wanted to emphasize what it thinks is not only a unique feel-good experience for listeners and employees, but also a competitive advantage

Cable management for the modern radio station 

The proliferation of audio over digital cable has made the transportation of audio as well as voice, data, and control easier and more effective.

From cramped classrooms to productive workspace 

The result of WFUV's $5.5 million budget and long, hard work from the engineering staff is a strong and flexible radio facility that provides a productive and flexible place for work.

Wired for sound and data and more 

The proliferation of new communications technologies has had a tremendously positive effect on the amount and types of wire and cable available for a radio studio facility.

Built for Success 

When it was purchased, the WKLU studios were in a house that at one time was a pet store.

Were you born in a barn? Actually, yes. 

This facility had been a working farm until it was converted into an industrial area in the mid-1980s, and the barn became a radio facility in 1995.

Dayton's voice of the arts gets a clearer voice 

The genesis of this project was an opportunity to relocate and upgrade WDPR's transmitter site from a deteriorating leased tower that was only 200-feet tall, to the local PBS affiliate's 1,500-foot tower.

Clear Channel Albany 

This station group recently relocated to a new facility in Latham, NY, bringing all seven stations under the same roof with the idea that merging all technical and business elements results in a smoother, more efficient operation for the entire group.

Building the new while maintaining the old: MPR rebuilds 

When Minnesota Public Radio first considered expanding its building, it didn't take long to realize there were new technologies to use and improved construction plans to implement. With this came the rare chance to revamp the technical operation.

Waitt's Store-and-forward Satellite Programming 

Satellite-delivered radio formats are not a new idea. But instead of a continuous audio stream and a fixed clock for affiliates to follow, Waitt Radio Networks uses a store-and-forward approach that allows greater flexibility to its subscriber stations.

Bob and Tom make big plans 

Ten years and more than 150 affiliates later, we look at the next generation Bob and Tom Show studio. It's brand new and immense, but no one has the guts to say it will be big enough.

Short on time 

Cumulus' new nine-studio location was to be built in four months. While this sounds like a reasonable amount of time, it's important to know that the building itself would not be built for another month.
