Add another college station to the ranks of those that have stopped streaming. FM station WEGL at Auburn University in Alabama recently stopped streaming after four years.
"We ... decided to pull the plug after reviewing the potential costs involved," said Program Director Joseph Brannan. "I also wonder how artists are going to expect us to give them accurate counts of streams since '98. At no point did the university (which was running the streaming server) nor Nibblebox (who also hosted us at one point) keep detailed logs on listeners to our stream.
"Until we find out something different, our stream is going to stay silent except for locally originated programming." Statistics released earlier this week by BRS Media indicate that more than 1,000 Webcasters have made similar decisions in recent months.
