Careers in the Radio and Streaming Music Industry

Throughout the 20th century, radio (along with its cousin, television) was the unchallenged source of pop culture, advertising, and news—and a major way to discover and promote new music. But in the past two decades, the proliferation of the internet, mobile devices, and smart speakers has created new ways to interact with audio content. While radio still reaches millions of listeners, newer on-demand platforms, such as streaming services, podcasts, and internet radio stations, are poised to take over as a primary way people consume music, news, books, and more.
