Business radio programming has been providing people with up to the minute coverage for decades. Even in 2013, many people still have a somewhat antiquated image of radio, thinking that if they want to listen to business and finance news, they need to either turn on a conventional receiver in their home, or go drive around in their car. Thankfully, there are plenty of other ways to get your daily dose of business radio news.
On September 4, ValueWalk.com announced that SiriusXM Radio Inc had signed a new deal to broadcast Fox News and Fox Business programming on its airwaves until 2019. While this kind of news will no doubt be reassuring to a number of satellite radio subscribers, there are still more ways to listening to the latest financial and business news.
Ever hear of the internet? Yup! You can listen to the radio online free of charge through a number of different online stations. From the latest in business finance news to interviews with CEOs and world leaders in industry, you will never have to worry about missing a story when it breaks and having to scour through the internet later to find it.
Because of the fact that business radio licensing has gotten simpler over the years, it has become easier to broadcast and simulcast programming that originates on terrestrial AM and FM stations. Most people find their radio stations online through an official website or an RSS feed, while many others have found hidden gems on various blogs and fan websites.
If you want to stay informed, the internet could be the best way to go. As long as you can get online with the help of a desktop, laptop, tablet or cellphone, you will have the opportunity to listen in while your favorite hosts discuss the top news stories.
