The ASC Library has just opened a subscription to TALKERS Magazine, a broadcasting industry trade publication which bills itself "the Bible of Talk Radio and the New Talk Media."
Launched during the summer of 1990 by Michael Harrison, a radio broadcasting innovator and trade journalist, "TALKERS Magazine features news stories about the non-stop happenings in talk radio and the new talk media including articles about top hosts and stations, developments at the networks, interviews with movers and shakers, the opinions of industry participants and leaders, and fast-breaking developments in technology. The publication also conducts ongoing research of the topics and opinions discussed and expressed on hundreds of talk stations and programs across America and compiles them into surveys and graphs which have become the standard of the industry."Excepts from current stories in each monthly print edition of the magazine can be accessed at available at the Talkers website. Current issues are available at the ASC Library. In addition to our subscription start-up, I purchased back issues from 2004-2009 so we have a little bit of a research cushion for this title.
