So it’s been a really busy couple of days!
I arrived back in the Isle of Man yesterday, to find out my luggage didn’t travel with me! Oops – filled with presents for the kids from the Grandparents. Thanks to Flybe for finding it and delivering to our home last night!
I am so happy to be back! The Isle of Man is truly the best place in the world!
Found an interesting post this morning my Elizabeth Lewin, from Podcasting News. I always enjoy reading her posts!
It’s something I have been saying for years!!!
John Hirst, head of global content and podcasts with the UK’s Global Radio group, says that podcasting has the potential to “create new and lucrative revenue streams” for newspaper, radio and television businesses. Global Radio has over sixty stations throughout Great Britain, including syndicated brands Capital Radio, Classic FM and LBC, and purports to have generated over £1million sterling from its podcasting efforts.
In an interview with Business and Leadership.com, Hirst recounted the podcast-monetization timeline at Global Radio, which has been producing audio and video podcasts for the past four years. After spending a year in the planning stages, the group had £40,000 sterling in sales in the second year, and £450,000 sterling in year three. Podcast revenue “is growing significantly at present,” he said.
