My Station

Steve Ronsman mans the mic at … er … What station is that?

Ronsman built this fantasy station, complete with many working pieces of equipment, in his basement. In addition he has an attached vocal booth. He even went to the trouble of running a tower from the basement, through a deck, to the outside. Ronsman has an FCC Third Class Operators Permit but his station owner/on-air career hasn’t happened, yet. “The dream lives on!” he says.

For his efforts, Radio World is sending him a Radio World t-shirt.

If you have a picture that you’d like us to consider for Photo of the Week send to Radio World. We might even send you a Radio World t-shirt.  



WNBM's Brooklyn Community Meeting

Though Jan. 19 is being celebrated as Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 15 was the actual birthday. On that day, Cumulus Media’s WNBM in New York, co-sponsored a community town hall meeting, “Celebrating King Through Peace, Understanding and Justice,” in Brooklyn to discuss his legacy and more. Actor and WNBM show host D.L. Hughley represented the radio station.

What Happens in Vegas …

Many in the radio industry complain about iHeartMedia but it would be hard to begrudge them their promotional firepower and constant branding. Here’s their event at the International CES in Las Vegas, Wednesday night at the Light Nightclub at the Mandalay Bay hotel. Jason Derulo provided the entertainment.

Christmas Cheer KNX-Style

CBS Radio’s KNX(AM) is working with the California Highway Patrol in the annual CHiPs for Kids holiday toy drive. Working with local businesses and at live remotes, KNX hosts collected toys. Here they are in Cerritos, Calif., on Dec. 12. Flanking CHP Officer Jeremy Tolen are KNX drive time hosts Jim Thornton and Diane Thompson. Joining them are Walgreen’s employees and members of the KNX Street team. Walgreens and KNX’s CBS sister TV stations KCBS and KCAL also pitched in on the effort.

If you have a picture of your Christmas efforts, send it to us at Radio World.



Live in Oz

We go international for our latest Photo of the Week. Triple R claims to be Australia’s largest community radio station with almost half a million listeners per week in the Melbourne, Victoria, area.

Nik Tripp of Triple R tells us, “A few years ago we moved into an old lingerie factory and built our new studios.”

He adds, “This studio has been purpose-built to make live radio with an audience of 150 watching the bands as they go live to air. Our listeners love to come in and watch bands play and because it’s been built as a live studio, it sounds great both on-air and in the room!”

The space is called “The Triple R Performance Space.” Note the Avid/Digidesign Venue console.  

If you have a great photo that you think screams “Radio!” send it our way for Photo of the Week consideration.



Main Street Radio

Here’s an election night photo looking at the WMST(AM/FM) storefront on Main Street in Mount Sterling, Ky. It’s practically Norman Rockwell with the bunting inside. WMST provided election coverage and news for the area. Its owner, Gateway Radio Works, also simulcast the news to its other properties, WKYN(FM) (which operates out of the WMST facilities), WIVY(FM) and WKCA(FM) (which share facilities in Morehead, Ky.).

Have a photo that screams, “Radio!” For Photo of the Week consideration, send it to
