Internet radio encourages listener participation

Do you remember when ‘‘Video Killed the Radio Star’’? This song, released by the British pop band The Buggles in 1979, has come to symbolize the decline of radio and the rise of video, the Internet and other new media.

Radio as an old media has maintained its unique realm for the past 27 years, even though it has become caught up in the midst of new media. According to a survey conducted by Hankook Research, listener ratings in February and March was 35 percent compared to last year’s average of 32.6 percent.
