Why successful radio managers do the things they do
A valuable guide to managing radio stations, first launched as a
download last year, has now been made available as a paperback book.
"Managing Radio" is the first detailed and comprehensive practical guide
to all the essential elements of managing radio stations. It covers the
management of commercial, public service and community radio stations
and the wide range of new DAB, online, web and independent production
A useful text for students studying the theory and practice of managing
radio, it is also an authoritative hands-on guide to setting up a
station or radio service from scratch. It explores how to create
sustainable radio through managing for profit, public service or the
participation of the audience in all parts of the station.
"Managing Radio" provides useful practical advice, examples of
contemporary radio management practices and case studies of radio
management in action, backed up with references to wider academic
reading in media, business and cultural studies.

decided to publish the work ourselves.
