The importance of Internet radio

Tube City Online Radio will be celebrating its eighth anniversary later this year --- we launched in October 2015. What is the importance of Internet radio? Producer and programmer has some thoughts that he's posted on the Airtime.Pro website:

From its early beginnings in the 1990s, Internet radio has grown into a ubiquitous presence in our lives, offering us access to an ever-expanding variety of audio content. From music and talk shows to podcasts and live broadcasts, online radio has become an indispensable tool for the delivery of information and entertainment ...

From its humble beginnings in the 1990s to its current status as an indispensable tool for music, information, and entertainment, internet radio has come a long way. With new trends emerging all the time, there’s no telling what the future holds. But one thing is for sure – it will continue to play an important role in our daily lives for many years to come.

The History of Internet Radio: From Humble Beginnings to Indispensable Tool

We have some big plans we hope to announce soon about expanding our outreach to McKeesport and the surrounding Mon-Yough communities. In the meantime, thank you for your support and for tuning in!

Doug Goffus, 1949-2021

Doug Goffus, longtime Tube City Community Media Inc. board member, former board chair and host of "Goffus Golden Oldies" passed away Dec. 9 following a brief illness.

Doug was one of our earliest board members at Tube City Community Media Inc. and was instrumental in launching our Internet radio station, now known as Tube City Online Radio. He was a dedicated volunteer and was willing to devote many hours of unpaid work to Tube City Community Media.

Doug also was an excellent sounding board for ideas and everyone at Tube City Online came to appreciate his no-B.S. responses.

Doug had a long career in the federal government, both as an active member of the armed services and as an employee of several different departments, and also lent his talents to radio stations in Virginia and WRCT-FM in Pittsburgh.

We were very flattered that he volunteered his time with us and we will miss him.
