Colin Cowherd Thinks AM Radio Will Be Dead in Five Years

Ryan Glasspiegel

As I discussed in my podcast with Dan Le Batard last week, I also think radio stations are the next newspapers, ill-prepared to handle the tidal wave that is coming and failing to pivot fast enough before everything is run through bluetooth. But, I think five years is a little bit too soon of an estimate. There is a whole generation of people that will never learn how to stream a podcast through their car radio, and terrestrial stations will subsist on them for at least another 10-15 years.

That being said, there is tremendous opportunity out there for content networks and individuals who best figure out how to distribute their work through new car radio technology. As advertisers continue to shift their budgets to where all of this is going, there will be enormous rewards for those who get there early.
