Description:
Founded in 1937 by Jack Alicoate, who also published the New York-based FILM DAILY. Alicoate essentially took the same model he had used for film and applied it to the growing medium of broadcasting: publish a daily trade paper with headlines and short news stories and then an end-of-the-year annual with industry data and loads of advertisements. Today, v=broadcasting historians will find a great deal of policy, industry, station, and programming information inside RADIO DAILY and the RADIO ANNUAL. -- Eric Hoyt, 2015
