Since time is a precious commodity, the spare time I used to give to the CRM Blog site had to placed elsewhere. Some of that time went into making the main CRM Message Board even better and more information-filled than ever before. Some of that time was put into some outside projects. However, most of that spare time was put into creating the brand new Chicagoland Radio and Media website.
The brand new website will be launching in a matter of days now, most likely on January 1st, 2010. While it will still have the now-famous message board, it will also contain a great deal more. The CRM website will have a Media News page, live newsfeeds for many local & national media blogs, an "Interviews" page, a "Columns" page feature regular reoccurring columns from guest contributors, special guest bloggers, ratings pages for the Chicago radio & TV market, the most extensive Chicago media links page -- EVER, photos pages featuring Chicago radio music surveys from the 60's-80's, photo pages with Chicago radio and TV personalities, photo pages with promotional buttons/pins/stickers from Chicago media outlets, a "Where Are They Now" page, an "In Memoriam" page, classic video clips, a Marketplace, a FAQ page, live traffic updates, live weather updates, and so much more!
Since the new site will have a blogsite within it, this particular CRM blogsite will no longer be used. The CRM Blog is indeed returning in 2010, but it is moving to it's new home on the new ChicagolandRadioAndMedia.com site. This site will remain open for archival purposes, but no new updates will be done. Please visit the new site for new blogs by myself and others.
This Google blogsite started in early December of 2007. It comes to an end of sorts in late December 2009. The site is not dead, though -- just moving up & evolving.
I'll post up on here one last time when the new site launches, letting all know it is live and how to find it.
Until then, let me thank all of the readers of this blogsite. It's been my honor to type for you! It will continue to be my honor to do so at the new website in the very, very near future.
