Internet radio is getting some attention at SXSW and there are several sessions on the agenda that pertain.
Jake Sigal, Founder of Internet radio device manufacturer Livio Radio, will present “The View From Detroit: In Vehicle Music” on Saturday the 19th. Sigal plans to discuss in car listening options that include AM/FM, Satellite, HD and Internet radio. He’ll ask, and may even answer questions like: Will one emerge as a leader as the others fall to the wayside? Are too many options hurting the overall industry? Where are the opportunities for emerging entrepreneurs?
Rebecca McInroy of WKUT, a public radio station affiliated with the University of Texas in Austin, presents a session called: “Baby’s Gotta Face for Radio: Web Based Radio?” It’s described as a panel that “will explore how public radio stations can build interactive visual components with the goal of becoming a hyper-local non-profit multi-media presence while serving a global audience, and at the same time maintaining the standard and mission NPR has developed.”
