News Talk Shows have been an integral part of Radio Broadcasts since its inception in the earliest 21st century. Almost instantly as the Radio Wave was capitalized, News Shows developed an implicit sense for all listeners, and to many, Radio Broadcast meant nothing but only News programs. Though News Shows of earlier decades found shorter periods among other primary entertainment such as Music and other Talk Shows, today a number of Radio Stations are dedicated solely to the purpose of providing News 24×7 to its listeners, with constant innovation in this industry taking place.

In the 1960s, Gordon McLendon became the pioneer to program and to implement a 24×7 Radio Station dedicated to News Shows alone. Even today, some Radio Stations use that time tested Radio programming format, which consists of 30 minutes of National and International news every hour, along with local news, Business news, Sports highlights and more. Earlier, giants like Associated Press (AP) and United Press International (UPI) held a wide network of field reporters and supplied other News networks with stories and reports. Today’s workforce infrastructure allows every Radio Broadcast Station to have their own ample and skilled professionals covering the fields, for local, national and international news segments. Other segments of Sports, Weather, Traffic, Business and Economy, and special interviews are also covered for stories and reports.

Three prime Radio Broadcast Stations, covering the United States are CNN, ABC Radio and National Public Radio. These Radio Broadcast Stations reach millions of listeners daily, with live regional, national and international news coverage. These News Channels achieve this feat by partnering with affiliates from across the country. Alternately, these Channels are also hosted on the Internet and offer live feed of visual versions of the news coverage, in different media formats, which can be accessed, downloaded and viewed on the PC and even on mobile phones. In a world where Digital Computing has raced for glory, it remains no surprise that Radio Waves still remain the primary option for many.
