AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR LISTENERS FROM THE STAFF OF "OFF THE HOOK&#3

3 posts in this topic

When the hurricane hit us, apart from our own immediate survival, our thoughts went out to our listeners and how we could play a part in the recovery process. In times of crisis, radio is incredibly important - a veritable lifeline for those who have lost all other contact with the outside world. On Wednesday, October 31st, there were millions of people in that unfortunate position. All of downtown Manhattan was blacked out, as were massive parts of the surrounding areas. But, luckily, WBAI was still transmitting, albeit from a backup site.

Seems like they'd be a lot better off without the rules of radio restricting them. A move to a network like TWiT or something might be a really good thing for the show.

Although as they said in the letter:

We want to continue broadcasting over the radio, as that is where the true magic is. Podcasts are a supplement to this, but not a replacement. We don't ever want to lose the possibility of someone accidentally stumbling upon our show while driving in their car or of non-tech savvy people being fascinated by what they hear. Pulling in listeners who never even knew that they were interested in what we were talking about is what makes all of this worthwhile.
