It’s High-Octane Audio for Motor Racing Network

Posted by Tom Vernon on Feb 20, 2014 9:23:00 AM

Motor Racing NetworkAs the “Voice of NASCAR,” the Motor Racing Network (MRN) is the principal radio broadcasting operation of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing.

And not just the premiere events of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series - but the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races as well.

Only one problem: They never actually skied on an Olympic course before! They hardly skied at all on any course.

Our US readers may have noticed recently a number of AM stations filing for and obtaining translators to help boost signal coverage. Maybe you've even applied for one of your own. That's thanks to the FCC's Report and Order from 2009 that allowed cross-service translation (the ability for AMs to rebroadcast on an FM frequency).

Processing and Level Management Critical when Streaming

Posted by Denny Sanders on Jul 27, 2011 1:25:00 PM

The importance of proper processing and level management of internet streams can not be overemphasized.

Take for example a certain, highly-rated terrestrial radio station in a top 5 market whose audio stream I was fond of listening to. I say “was” because I no longer listen.

Why?
