Ten years ago, audio storytelling such as audio or radio drama was in decline across much of the media world. Drama had been dropped from major and modern radio stations who had to keep up with the trend while audio listening phased out momentarily along with budget cuts.
In 2012, new digital productions in the U.S. started drawing in audiences familiar with earlier radio traditions. The bundling of the iTunes app on iPhones and growth of social media and users who were adept in technology means new listeners who were in fact discovering audio stories for the first time.
Newswav is jumping the bandwagon as well!
