Thanks for your continued support. Over the last few months we have noticed blatant copying, cutting and pasting of our materials, ideas and industry scoops on other sites. As we are aware that we are the leader on the urban side (and beyond) and that competitors look to us for news to add to their sites, it has become necessary to monitor Radio Facts better. The copying of our idea for the Top 10 Urban Radio DJs of All Time by NewsOne.com, owned by Radio One, was the last straw.
As this is a niche blog that caters to the industry, only certain industry people will be added to our subscriber only list. These people will receive insider news and information as only Radio Facts can and will deliver it. We will open up the blog in the near future to accept more subscribers but as it stands we MUST know you or be familiar with you in order for you to be added to the subscriber list. Thanks to the thousands who responded yesterday and signed up. We are going over the list to add names. If you are not added, please understand we are targeting certain people in the industry at this point. We want to make this a win/win for everyone so membership will have its privileges. We will offer incentives to our members in the near future.
Your name and information will NOT be disclosed unless you make a comment on one of the posts while you are signed in. REGISTER WITH YOUR REAL NAME but if you want to make a comment and keep it anonymous SIGN OUT FIRST. Then you can use an alias. My assistant inadvertadly allowed over 500 people in that were not screened yesterday. Some of these subscriptions will be removed. As a test, the Aretha Franklin birthday story is a subscriber only story. When you are directed to the registration page you will know that it’s “Subscriber Only” content. Click the “Register” link and go from there. I suggest you register NOW as we have to approve you and it’s going to take a couple of days, this way if a hot story comes up, you will have access to it, if you are accepted.
