The year 2004 saw a number of significant events in radio broadcasting history.

Events[edit]

  • April 8 – As part of a series of format changes at Cumulus Media-owned stations in the Quad Cities, KORB (93.5 FM) switches from active rock to hot adult contemporary, adopts the former call sign KQCS (which had been used at frequency from 1989-1995) and adopts the slogan "Star 93.5." The active rock format is moved to WXLP (96.9 FM), which dumps its longtime classic rock format as a result, and adopts the slogan "97 Rock."[1]
  • October 30 – In the UK a 163-metre-high radio mast at Peterborough collapses in a fire.

Debuts[edit]

Closings[edit]

  • May – Westwood One ends production of "NBC Radio News"-branded morning-drive newscasts, produced by CBS Radio personnel, one of the few remaining links to the original NBC Radio Network. The move came a year after the launch of the non-related "NBC News Radio" in an arrangement with NBC and Westwood One (that service would be expanded to a round-the-clock basis on 1 April 2012). Usage of the NBC Radio "Hotline" satellite chirp was also retired.
  • 27 February – I.E. America Radio Network ends operations,
  • 15 December – Brian Beirne retires from KRTH.
