2In the web radio universe, everything is possible! The most unusual formats are authorized. In the music realm, a lot of things have been created and the competition is fierce. Most of the music trends have been explored for which the streaming platforms propose an unlimited selection.
On the other hand, radio is not only about music, it is above all about voice, talk, and sharing information… and in this domain there is a lot left to explore, there are so many possibilities. Creating a talk radio is not so difficult. Here’s why:
- You’re not obligated to create hours and hours of talk radio every day, anywhere from 60 or even 30 minutes multicasted every day could be enough (your radio’s purpose is not to be listened to continuously)
- Radionomy’s RadioManager is very practical to broadcast talk radio, there is the possibility to easily integrate your podcasts (it can last up to 15 minutes per episode)
- Thanks to Radio Manager, you will be able to pre-record content, according to the theme of your talk radio (as long as your radio isn’t connected to the current affairs), and pre-program them up to a month in advance
Otherwise said, having a talk radio program doesn’t mean that you need to be live and on the microphone with guests 24/7. You should really try out a talk web radio. Why not start today by creating it on Radionomy; it’s completely free!
