Washington - Jun 7, 2011 - The 2011 RadioShow has announced the engineering program, which will run during the convention Sept. 14 - 16. The convention will be held at the Chicago Hyatt Regency.

A series of tutorials and presentations cover the challenges of creating, operating and maintaining a modern radio facility. New developments in studio design and audio production are explored during Studio/Production Day. Transmission/Distribution Day offers a variety of discussions addressing traditional over-the-air and Web-based program distribution. Finally, Tower Day focuses on keeping an often overlooked asset -- the tower -- properly maintained and prepped to become a potential revenue generator.

New technologies are helping radio broadcasters connect more effectively with a new generation of listeners. Rich websites, social media and simplified remote broadcasting are all helping stations become better resources for their communities and clients. The accompanying expansion of services creates more challenges for radio engineers and a real need to remain open-minded and technically up-to-speed.
