Today sees another milestone in the Radio Today story as we launch a new regular newsletter for the radio industry.
And as well as including an exclusive feature or two, we are aiming to put the fun back in to radio by including photos, audio links, gossip and events.
Is there need for such a publication? "Absolutely," says editor and founder Roy Martin. (that'll be me, then – ed)
"Everyone looked forward to their monthly edition of X-TRAX before it ceased publication, if only to look at the photos. And who doesn't like a bit of gossip?"
eRADIO will also contain interesting articles written by people working and playing in the radio industry. The debut edition features an article written by Sky News' Andy Ivy showcasing how they dealt with the recent weather conditions, and how they promoted commercial radio to their audience via a banner 24 hours a day.
We included a review of a Radio Academy event in which BBC Radio 5 live controller Adrian van Klaveren defended his decision not to live full time in Salford Quays when his station moves there in 15 months time.
And our Anorak Corner talked about new jingles and radio stations.
The industry has been left without a regular "email newsletter" since Radiojam, Inside Radio and the original "UK Radio Newsletter" stopped publication at various points over the last 6 or 7 years.
