OTTAWA, March 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Radio Hub Central (RHC) is a new Web site
designed exclusively for Canadian radio broadcasters. In development for
nearly a year, RHC's goal is to help Canadian broadcasters network, share
ideas, discuss industry-related issues and remain informed.
RHC's uniqueness lies in the features the site offers. RHC hosts an
online community for its radio industry membership. Like other social
networking sites (MySpace, Facebook, etc.), RHC provides an instant messenger
service, a live chat feature and even allows members to create personal
profile pages - but RHC is exclusively for Canadian broadcasters. On their
profile pages, members can post photos, maintain blogs, start polls and even
upload audio to showcase their talent.
"Radio is a close-knit community, but Canada is a huge country so it's
tough to network within the industry," says Liann Cameron, of SONiC 102.9FM in
Edmonton, Alberta. "Radio Hub Central bridges those geographical gaps by using
an online community just for us."
The site also boasts a newsroom featuring radio-related news, Canadian
Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) rulings, industry
hirings, firings and technological advances.
In addition, RHC lists Canadian radio job postings. RHC allows potential
employers to screen candidates directly through the site and potential
employees are aware of the newest job openings. "Finding the right person, at
the right time, in the right place... is never easy," says Scott Broderick, GM
Newcap Radio Ottawa. "With actual audio samples available on-line,
RadioHubCentral.com should become a daily habit for busy radio professionals."
