Maja Rakovic:

Has the Radio won the Internet?

When television appeared, everyone said the radio had come to an end! The same thing happened with the appearance of the Internet! However, the Internet only gave the radio its wings and literally opened the door to the world. Today, a local radio station can be heard at each end of the planet, and usually only one click away from it.

Still, what kind of radio is suitable for Internet? How to make a successful radio format according to the criteria of modern man and his needs, how does the world’s modern radio station work and how is it promoted to reach as many people as possible?
