Thanks for visiting our new blog. We hope to use this forum to inform (and occasionally entertain) readers about our vision for broadcast media and audio content creators, publishers and advertisers. We’ll cover topics that are important to the various industries with whom we work (broadcasting, music, technology), and important to us here at Clip Interactive.
Your feedback is welcome. Thanks for reading!
Part 1: Technology and Radio’s Place in the Dashboard
This is the second post in a series of posts about traditional radio and the dashboard. See the previous post under the same title, with “Introduction” as a sub-title.
In about a week’s time, Clip will be ready to launch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for 100% of the mobile apps that we build and maintain for our broadcaster partners. Why should you care? How important is Apple CarPlay (CP) and Android Auto (AA), and how are listeners accessing their favorite radio stations in vehicles, today – and how will they access those stations in the future?
At Clip, we’re sensing a lot of anxiety around what could happen (or worse, what might be happening already) to radio in the rapidly evolving automobile dashboard. This is an introductory blog post on the subject; subsequent posts will cover related issues in more depth.
This blog post is a simple commentary on these bold pursuits, recognizing that any “change agent” or “disruptive innovator” might come across as a negative, annoying critic. After all, no one likes a backseat driver.
