So hopefully you made your coffee or dunked a tea bag this morning…then, at exactly 7:50am (or 5:50am, for you early risers), you went to switch on your radio or the WNYC app. You listened, with your usual weekly anticipation, for the thumping techno that opens every New Tech City episode on Tuesdays.
And then maybe you were very sad.
Because there was no techno music.
No New Tech City.
We’ve just moved to Wednesday mornings as part of New Tech City’s next chapter!
This week marks the beginning of our expansion (and my first as the show’s managing editor).
We think it’s only apt that a show about the digital age expands with a new concept in audio programming. The plan is to build on traditional radio content with videos, live events, and other downloadable goodies.
Thanks to our listeners’ love and support you can expect:
1. Longer and even better podcasts. (Go to iTunes and subscribe if you haven’t already, won’t you?)
3. Videos and other digital first interviews and stories. (Cause all media is multimedia now, babe.)
Radio listeners will still get their 8 minutes of on-air innovation. (And you’ve got to listen to this week’s show: we talk to the director of a summer camp that has decided to implement an “anything goes” gadget policy, much to parents’ chagrin.)
But we also really hope you’ll join us as we grow…and let us know what more YOU think we should be doing during this exciting new phase of New Tech City.
Let me know here, on Twitter @manoush or just go to newtechcity.org.
