Hear New Brunswick is on the airNing Network Spotlight
In New Brunswick, N.J., Internet radio is blooming. Hear New Brunswick is proving that you don’t need radio towers to bring radio to the masses. Throughout the day — and night — the Internet station features segments like Mike’s Mishmash of Music and Too Much Sports. With more than 1,500 members, the station has quite a following. And thanks to the social network, it’s much more than the one-way interaction of traditional radio.
Visitors and members can tune in to the station’s live broadcast (or listen to old shows) right on the social network. Hear New Brunswick uses the Events feature to promote upcoming episodes and segments, such as FiL With Sound Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day. And every regularly scheduled radio show has its own group on Hear New Brunswick, so fans of the show can interact directly with the creators and guests before and after the show. Using the Language Editor, they’ve even renamed “Groups” to “Shows” to really emphasize how groups are used on the social network.
