Background : Radio and TV stations as hundreds of other businesses in the world, are going through tough times. On-line broadcasting as a business is re-discovered, explored and used with great success. This will ultimately change the course of broadcasting in the future. Advertisers and businesses are looking at new ways to expand their revenue as well as their listenership.
Radio Class is a weekly, on-line, interactive, broadcast workshop for 10 weeks. It is designed to keep the radio station’s workflow. Radio Class accommodates people at home or at their home offices in-front of their desktop or laptops around the globe. A good internet connection is required as well as the built in camera and microphone of the laptop. If a desktop is used an affordable microphone and a mobile phone as a camera, can be used.
