iPod pushing traditional radio out of pop culture

updated 09:30 am EDT, Mon May 16, 2005

iPod and traditional radio

The iPod has changed how the public views traditional radio, according to the Washington Post. "A huge is developing. The iPod, Apple's digital music player, is more like the transistor radio than any other gadget in media history, in that it is making a powerful entrance into the American home mainly through the teen market." This has led Infinity Broadcasting, one of the largest U.S. radio companies, to convert an AM station in San Francisco to KYOU. Starting tomorrow the station will adopt a format they call "all podcast" in which anyone who cobbles together a radio show can upload it to the station, which will pick its favorite submissions and throw them on the air.
