While 25% now rate themselves as “savvy.” Dave Ramsey, who spoke at CRS (Country Radio Seminar), said radio got hit with “the perfect storm” with consolidation, the growing impact of the Internet, and then the economy.

* Syndicating broadcast content to Facebook or MySpace fan pages. The Bright side: http://twitter.com/#!/HowardStern Now, Howard Stern.. So can Social media fill a content void in radio?
A delivery medium that is lacking support needs as much interactive struct ure with its audience as it can get.
Social media is a force that can solve problems that broadcasters face, such as, promotion to younger audiences, and gaining insight and feedback from a direct source.
