An excellent textbook. I have used it in my Audio/Radio Production class since its first edition. No other textbook comes close because other audio books dwell on acoustics, etc., and not what it is like to work at a radio station. It is also reasonably priced in comparison to other college textbooks that I use in class.

We use this book as a textbook for college level radio classes. I have reviewed this book and find it to be a reasonably up to date narrative of the state of the radio broadcasting business. And this new edition ties together radio and its relationships with digital platforms well.
