I realized I haven’t updated the blog in a while, and that’s largely because I’ve moved to posting links like the ones you’re about to see to Twitter. But today I figured I’d do something out of the ordinary and highlight some excellent content from around the web here:
- Mediate’s Power Grid: This site ranks broadcasting personalities based on their reach in old and new media including their broadcast audience, Google buzz, and overall web buzz. A number of NPR folks made the list including Steve Inskeep, Michele Norris, Melissa Block, and Renee Montagne. For some reason there’s no category for radio reporters (although TV reporters do have a space). via Current
- Video comparison of Zoom H2, Marantz PMD620, and Sony PCM-D50: Gearwire put together this video overview of these three devices nearly a year ago. But this is the first time I’ve seen it, thanks to Happy Orange.
- How Radio is Made: Someone recently asked independent radio producer and blogger Cyrus Farivar how he put together a story. So he took the time to write a long, detailed explanation of how the public radio system works and what it takes to put together a story for a national radio program.
