WOXY.COM is shutting down

It is sad news indeed that Cincinnati’s WOXY.COM, the "future of rock ‘n’ roll" internet only radio station is shutting down after 26 months on the ‘Net. Originally created as a result of the sale of WOXY FM in 2004, WOXY.COM was created to continue the mission of producing vibrant rock and roll programming that played a multitude of independant and "alternative" bands and record labels. The quote that got to me was the following from station manager Bryan Jay Miller:

"Internet radio is very cool, but you’re still tethered to a computer for the most part. That impacted our advertising growth."

It seems that Internet radio still has a way to go to reach its potential and it looks like WOXY.COM is an unfortunate casualty. More info can be found here.
