Michael Black, General Manger of WEOS, was chosen to be part of Harris Corporation’s Radio Broadcast Council, which met in Mason, Ohio, on Feb. 9 and 10. Black was one of four public radio representatives chosen for the group, which numbered about 30.
The group of radio leaders from large broadcast groups and individual stations discussed the future of radio technology, broadcast policy. They also focused on the rollout of digital radio, and the future of this format including 5.1 stereos surround, and real-time traffic data for vehicle navigation.
Members included the heads of operations and/or engineering of the largest radio groups in the country.
WEOS has been broadcasting in HD radio since December, and is the first FM station outside of Albany or New York City in the state to broadcast in this format.
WEOS is a non-commercial, public radio station licensed to Hobart and William Smith Colleges by the Federal Communications Commission, broadcasting at 89.7 MHz, with a power output of 4,000 watts.
