About this book

An examination of the development of local radio broadcasting and the trend for locally-owned, locally-originated and locally-accountable commercial radio stations to fall into the hands of national and international media groups. Starkey traces the early development of local radio through to present-day digital environments.

Reviews

'Local Radio, Going Global is well informed, academically robust, and clearly coming from someone with a great affection for radio. The book explores the development of local radio in detail but always within the wider social, political and economic context, and the author's clear, personable and approachable voice adds greatly to the value of this work. It is an important new resource for the radio scholar.' - Jason Griffiths, University of Gloucestershire, UK
