WXYC Tenth Anniversary of Streaming Panel Discussion

Nov 06, 2004

On November 7, 1994, WXYC-FM (Chapel Hill, North Carolina) became the first radio station in the world to offer a live Internet simulcast of an off-air signal.

In honor of the tenth anniversary of this pioneering event, we brought together a panel discussion, featuring the team who initially implemented the stream: Paul Jones, David McConville and Michael Shoffner.  Additionally, the panel featured John Streck of NCSU's Centaur Lab, and was moderated by WXYC DJ Bret Dougherty.

This event capped off a weekend of festivites celebrating the 10th anniversary of streaming.  Other notable items include the creation of a commemorative CD, which can be downloaded for free from WXYC's site.
