Radio in Petaluma: The “End” of Radio

Our group's findings while investigating Radio listener rates in Petaluma.
Dear Editor,

For our investigative sociology course, our group is assigned to assist a local public radio station in Petaluma. The project itself consists of listening to city hall meetings, current events, and distributing a large amount of surveys to the general public in order to understand the reasoning as to why there has been such a low listener turn out in public radio.

Our group has come to the conclusion that as time passes, technology advances; current platforms that we constantly use to advertise ourselves and our creative interest are always changing therefore we can conclude that the “end” of radio can be treated as an example of this phenomenon. Based on our conclusion we were wondering if you had any insights on the matter as a form of supplement to our argument. All feedback is appreciated, good or bad. Whatever input you could provide would be much appreciated as we can either perform a collaborative approach to this issue or create a comparison between conflicting opinions.
