Celebrating With Relevant Radio® for 15 Years of Catholic Programming

When you turn on AM 1180 KYES, your Catholic talk radio station, you hear the exceptional programming you always have. You may not realize the incredible and drastic changes that your radio has undergone, especially over the last decade. Digital technology has changed the way we operate in countless ways. From how we access our local radio stations to the greater sound quality and options, radio has come a long way in a very short time. There can be no doubt that technology today that we never consider would have been something from a science fiction novel in a relatively short past. Often, when advancements do come, we either appreciate them for a brief time, until the latest version or upgrade is released. Alternatively, we fail to notice them altogether. This article looks at just a few ways that new technology has so greatly improved radio broadcasting.

AM Radio Online

One of the largest benefits is the availability of providing AM radio online. With the arrival of the internet, it was not long before the advantages of online radio became exceptionally clear. Reports show that those who continue to listen to their programming on a traditional radio are not alone. In fact, the majority of Americans still listen to their favorite stations over the airwaves. However, digital radio and online access to those stations has grown exponentially for many reasons. One of the biggest is the availability it provides. Listeners can hear their favorite local stations from anywhere internet access is available. This is especially great for travelers who do not want to miss a thing. Also, the technology needed to listen to radio is minimal. In fact, since the beginning of online radio in the early 1990’s, the technology required to access streaming radio broadcasts is virtually the same. Streaming radio will be available on hundreds of types of devices and multiple operating systems. If you can access the internet, you can access your Catholic talk radio.

Quality of Programming

Another great feature of digital programming is the higher sound quality it provides. Before digital technology was an option, environmental factors could cause the quality of your sound and signal to drop. With digital radio online, these factors are eliminated. More than that, much of the programming is now digitally recorded. That allows us to broadcast shows created across the country with crystal clear sound quality. We are now able to offer a wider variety of content faster and easier than ever before. You may not have even noticed the many ways that our digital age, and the advances in radio technology and options over the past ten years are so improved.

Continued Advances

There seems to be no end to the advances in technology that benefit us. The advances in radio technology is no different. Many of the tried and true pieces of equipment and methods remain active. However, we realize that before we know it the next generation of technology could do even more amazing things. We appreciate all that digital technology has provided to better serve our listeners. Moreover, we look forward to the continually developing technology that continues to improve you Catholic talk radio station; AM 1180 KYES.
