People who work in traditional Radio and people who would like to be in Radio all wonder if Internet Radio and Podcasting can be a viable vehicle for careers. I think the answer to this question is slowly evolving into "yes, it can".

Writing at washingtonpost.com, Mike Musgrove has a great article about longtime radio pro, Mike O'Meara. O'Meara lost his on-air gig at 106.7 last year because of a format change. "For most of O'Meara's on-air career, losing a radio show would have meant a job hunt and a move to a different market," writes Musgrove.

But, O'Meara decided to have a go at Podcasting a show and apparently he is parlaying his 25 years in the Washington, D.C. market into a viable online offering. Read Musgrove's article and you'll be able to catch more of the details. For pros who have lost their jobs over the past few years and newbies who are looking for a way to get in front of the mike, Podcasting continues to offer a surprising amount of opportunities.
