THE END IS NEAR FOR IHEARTMEDIA The dreaded Telecommunications Act of 1996 changes radio in a major way. The downfall of some radio giants in 2016 is a direct result of that landmark decision. iHeartMedia America’s largest radio station owner with over 850 radio stations teeters on the brink of bankruptcy since 2010. Media Life Magazine’s Court Stroud reflects: …the breakup of iHeartMedia would be a good thing — good for radio, good for the employees and good for all the divisions.

CUMULUS TURNAROUND MAY TAKE YEARS Cumulus Media has 454 O&O radio stations in 90 US markets that includes eight of the top 10. During Thursday, ‎May ‎5, ‎2016 earnings call, Cumulus Media CEO Mary Berner warns: Our continued underperformance highlights the challenges that we are addressing, but fixable with time.

IRA [Eye] LIPSON {former PD of AOR KZEW FM The Zoo 97.9} (Dallas TX) Subject: Donating your voice. I’ve just finished recording 3500 sentences for VocaliD to donate my voice for people who are unable to speak. The organization takes phonics from my lines and turns them into speech when the user types on their keyboard. Perhaps you have seen Stephen Hawking or the late Roger Ebert doing something similar in order to talk. VocaliD is collecting voices in different ages, dialects and languages around the world. It’s a great feeling to know that your voice can give voice to people in need. It’s a volunteer activity that is very satisfying. You don’t need a full recording setup, you can even participate with a headset mike. They use a Google Chrome browser for recording. It’s a great way for broadcasters and ex-broadcasters to share their voices. For more info check out www.VocaliD.co. It is co, not com.
