Radio World is looking for YOUR cool photo that captures something about the world of working in radio: the romance and magic, the special technical challenges or dangers, the fun remotes and (always) the great people. Email


Joan at Sardi’s

No matter how you cut it, the Big Apple has some treats that no place else has. Here WABC(AM)’s Joan Hamburg chats with Matthew Broderick and Billy Carter about their new play, “Shining City,” at a remote at Sardi’s, the famous New York Theatre District hangout.


Broadcasting’s a Beach

Some would say that Eric Boyer has their dream job. He’s programming director, tech guy and on-air host for Caribe Broadcasting’s Island 92 in idyllic St. Maarten in the Caribbean. Here he broadcasts from Kim Sha Beach while covering the annual Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta.


When People Dressed Up for Radio

From 1947, Paul Daniels, an announcer for the original WHAV(AM/FM) in Haverhill, Mass., prepares for a read. He was a local boy. See our Q&A with WHAV President and General Manager Tim Coco on the station’s return to the FM dial.



Wheel of Fortune Vietnam

Plucked from the Former Military Broadcasters (AFRTS) Facebook page is this gem. Back row, fourth from left … look familiar?

Pat Sajak during his years in military broadcasting, late 1960s.  

Brought to our attention by Dan Slentz, himself a former military broadcaster.



Radio’s Run for the Roses

These guys never get enough credit. This is NBC Sports Radio’s trackside announcers (l–r) Jeff Bloom, Jude Feld and Tom Leach at Churchill Downs for last weekend’s Kentucky Derby. Some of their field equipment includes Lectrosonics UM250c UHF beltpack transmitters, UM400a digital hybrid wireless UHF beltpack transmitters and UT400 handheld digital hybrid wireless microphone/transmitters.


Fun Stuff at the NAB Show

Get a gander of this shiny radio broadcast object at the Bext booth at the NAB Show. There was much similar technology to be seen at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the show, along with other whiz-bangs such as snazzy virtual reality technology, stunning 8K video and drone cages practically around each corner.
