In the 20th century, with the developments in broadcasting technology and advances in computing, it was predicted that Radio would not see the turn of the century. Though the prediction was somewhat true and the radio waves did experience some kind of recession. But over the last 10 years, Radio has resurged and massively at that.
This uprise was influenced by podcasting and the lowering costs of an internet connection. More people have a smartphone, broadcasters were smart and jumped on to the applications wheel faster than most mainstream media and have kept themselves ever significant.
When I was young I always believed Radio would not survive but it seems it will outlive all of us.
