Big changes are coming to some 30 radio stations around the country. E.W Scripps is cutting their radio department and will be selling off their 34 stations. In a move to focus more on podcasts, the multimedia company is also restructuring in other departments to improve all resources. Adam Symson, Scripps’ relatively new CEO, has been influential in the move to podcasts.
Edible-Alpha, a podcast from the Food Finance Institute in Madison, Wisconsin is making waves with the food business. Tera Johnson, host and Zac Smucker-Bryan, producer, began this podcast in November of 2016 and have been sharing crucial information for those aiming to gain investors and finance knowledge for their food business. They have unique perspectives as a former radio host and someone coming in fresh to the entire industry.
