As I have done for many years, I wish to thank the people whose editorial contributions made Radio World possible in the past 12 months.
These are the folks whose articles, opinions, letters, tech tips, photos, interviews and other contributions appeared in the 32 issues of Radio World and Radio World Engineering Extra since January 2009 as well as our supplements and Webinars. They include not only our columnists, writers and editors but the newsmakers whose views we’ve presented.
Imagine getting to spend time every couple of weeks with the experts listed here. That’s what reading RW throughout the year is like.
Without these men and women, there could be no RW as you know it. With them, our publication constitutes a true community of radio broadcast professionals.

If you contributed to RW and I missed you, my regrets. If you didn’t and would like to in 2010, let me know. My thanks as well to the people behind the scenes at NewBay Media who produce Radio World, and to our many fine advertisers, on whose support we all lean in every issue.
Happy holidays to all!
