Washington - Oct 3, 2008 - The buzz from the NAB Radio exhibits floor during the convention in Austin, TX, was about the obvious lack of traffic that booths were seeing. And official numbers from the NAB prove suspicions right: Attendance was down more than 350 from last year's show in Charlotte, which brought in 3,100 attendees.

"'Drive-in traffic that normally materializes at the Radio Show was pretty much non-existent this year because of Hurricane Ike, and because some 60 radio stations in Texas were off the air during our show trying to get their facilities back on the air," said Dennis Wharton, NAB executive vice president.

Next year the NAB Radio Show will return to Philadelphia, a city that has attracted big numbers in the past.
