(Hicksville, NY) January 8, 2009 — A new e-mail list has been established to notify readers of the availability of each new issue of WorldRadio magazine, which is converting to a free online-only publication (titled WorldRadio Online) as of its February, 2009 issue. WorldRadio subscribers and any other interested people may sign up for the list online.
Monthly e-mail alerts will include highlights of each new issue, along with instructions and hotlinks for connecting with the online issue. The e-mail addresses will be used only by CQ Communications, Inc., and will not be rented or sold.
Each issue of WorldRadio Online will be posted in PDF format, permitting readers the choice of browsing articles online or downloading the issue to their own computers to read at their convenience or even to print out in part or in whole. Access to WorldRadio Online will be free of charge.
Most of WorldRadio’s columnists will continue to write for the new online edition. In November, 2008, CQ Communications, Inc. purchased WorldRadio upon the decision of founding publisher Armond Noble, N6WR, to retire and sell the magazine.
