CNY Radio celebrates its first year online

Sunday, June 30, 2002

PHOENIX, NY -- CNYRadio.com, the Internet's most comprehensive source for news relating to the Syracuse and Utica-Rome radio markets, is celebrating its one-year anniversary. Launched on July 1, 2001, with the goal of consolidating information from more than 65 radio industry and station online resources, CNYRadio.com has grown steadily in popularity since its debut and currently receives in excess of 16,000 page views from more than 5,000 visits each month.

By offering a full listing of schedules, air personality profiles, ratings, and contact information for more than 50 radio stations in the Central New York area, as well as over 350 news stories posted within the past year, radio industry professionals and the general public have come to rely on CNYRadio.com's timely, comprehensive coverage.

According to founder and site manager, Scott Jameson, "The response has been tremendous. It's more than we could have hoped for when we started putting the pieces of the puzzle together last spring." He credits much of the site's success to the cooperation and input of the Central New York radio community. "Without the help of station program directors and on-air staff, CNYRadio.com would not be as full-featured as it is. Plus they keep us in line and let us know when we get things wrong," quipped Jameson.

The site's newest feature, unveiled in June, is an online store featuring CNYRadio.com shirts, mugs, and mouse pads, links to apparel and merchandise for 15 area radio stations, and listings for over 100 radio-related books, CDs, and DVDs available at Amazon.com. In all, over 250 products are available for purchase online from the CNY Radio Store.

Other features of the site include links to archived audio airchecks, "On the Air" -- a weekly radio-related comic strip penned by Jameson, and a "Picture of the Week" posted every Friday highlighting a recent headline or a look back at a classic photo from the past.

Future plans for the site include the addition of in-depth feature articles on timely radio-related topics, profiles of legendary icons of Syracuse radio, and an expansion of station listings to include the Ithaca and Watertown markets.

Site manager Scott Jameson, a full-time software engineer, has been involved in Syracuse-area radio for 21 years and is a former WSEN FM news director. Jameson has been a part-time air personality at Oldies 92.1 since 1989.
