YOU ONLY GET TWO DO-OVERS IN LIFE. YOUR STUDIO IS ONE.

Josh Lynch will be the first to say that everything you thought you knew about AoIP could be wrong, and that’s okay. Even if what you know about radio could easily fit on a postage stamp, that’s okay too. It just so happens that his first involvement in a radio buildout was in 2018, after joining Draper Media as a broadcast engineer. The family-owned group in Salisbury, Maryland, had four television stations and one FM station at the time. “We were integrating four radio stations into the facility and going IP for the first time ever with these new stations they bought. That was my first experience with radio and anything AoIP,” he explained. Fast forward to today, and Draper Media, which is serving Nielsen market 137 with seven radio stations along with seven TV stations, has one of the more sophisticated studio operations in the business. What happened between then and now? A few more radio stations and one do-over.
