Technology, Formatting and Competence: Trends and Dynamics in Scandinavian Broadcasting



Shaking off a legacy of public monopoly in radio broadcasting, Scandinavia has become a vibrant and increasingly market-driven environment in step with international trends. Deregulation in the 1980's created a highly competitive and rapidly diversified context that shows strong influences from and parallels with radio practices in the United States.  This panel will address such influences and parallels, while also emphasizing important distinctions. The panelists will describe and analyze characteristic trends and dynamics in Scandinavia and the USA in comparative fashion, highlighting developments of historic and contemporary importance in production technology, channels formatting strategies, and organization structures.

Future Configuration of Radio

Sponsors: Broadcast and Internet Radio


Some media soothsayers have noted that a paradigm shift is in the making regarding radio.  Point to point audio communication has been dominated by land line (wired) methods.  The delivery of audio mass entertainment has been dominated by over the air methods (broadcast).  Some have predicted that this paradigm will shift…telephone will become almost totally wireless, while entertainment programming will be delivered by broadband means, i.e., some type of wired communication.  What do the current industry leaders and academicians think?

It is an odyssey that is best examined by looking at individual women and their efforts to make their mark in television history.

Speaker:  Stanley S. Hubbard [insert picture]


Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc. (HBI) and past Chairman of United States Satellite Broadcasting Co., Inc. (USSB), Stanley S. Hubbard is a second generation broadcaster.  His father, Stanley E. Hubbard, signed-on the company's first radio station in 1923.  For more than 75 years, HBI has stayed on the industry's cutting edge, pioneering innovations in radio, television and satellite broadcasting.


Mr. Hubbard has served on the United States National Information Infrastructure Advisory Council, a Presidential commission which developed policies and plans for America's new information and telecommunications "superhighway," (1994-1996), the FCC's Blue Ribbon Advisory Committee on Advanced Television Service (1988-1995), and the Broadcast Advisory Committee to the House Subcommittee on Communications which was chaired by Congressman Lionel Van Deerlin (1977-1979).  In addition, as a leader in the industry, Mr. Hubbard has been asked to testify before Congress on numerous occasions.


An inductee in Broadcasting & Cable Magazine's first Hall of Fame (1991) and the Society of Satellite Professionals International Hall of Fame (1992) and a recipient of the SBCA's Arthur C. Clarke Award (1994), Mr. Hubbard formed United States Satellite Broadcasting Co., Inc. (USSB) in 1981, becoming one of the first proponents of Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS).  In May 1999 USSB was merged with DIRECTV®. 


Hubbard Broadcasting has seven television and two radio stations in Minnesota—KSTP-AM-FM-TV and KSTC-TV in St. Paul/ Minneapolis, WDIO-TV in Duluth, KAAL-TV in Austin/Rochester, KSAX-TV in Alexandria, and satellites KRWF-TV in Redwood Falls and WIRT-TV in Hibbing; two radio stations in New Richmond, Wisconsin, WIXK-AM-FM; three TV stations in New Mexico—KOB-TV in Albuquerque, KOBR-TV in Roswell, and KOBF-TV in Farmington; and two TV stations in New York—WNYT-TV in Albany and WHEC-TV in Rochester.  In addition, Hubbard Broadcasting owns F & F Productions and Diamond P Sports in St. Petersburg, Florida.


Hubbard Broadcasting is the managing general partner of CONUS Communications, the world's first satellite newsgathering organization, serving more than 150 television stations worldwide.  CONUS was the first to use Ku-band technology to provide local, regional, national, and international news coverage to local television stations.  In addition, CONUS produces the All News Channel, a 24-hour television news service providing news and daily news updates for several cable networks.


Born in St. Paul, Mr. Hubbard graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts Degree.  Working in the family business since 1951, Mr. Hubbard became President of Hubbard Broadcasting in 1967 and Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer in 1983.  Active in community and broadcasting affairs, he currently serves on various boards including the Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV), the University of Minnesota Foundation, University of St. Thomas, and the Minnesota Business Partnership.  Most recently, he was named Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.



The recipient of numerous awards and honors, he is the most proud of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Distinguished Service Award which he received jointly with his father in 1995.  Mr. Hubbard is a member of various local and national organizations, yacht and country clubs.  Personal interests include boating, hockey, tennis and photography.  Married to Karen Holmen, they have five children, all of whom are active in the family business, and ten grandchildren.  The Hubbards live in St. Marys Point, Minnesota, on the St. Croix River.

Beyond the Digital Divide: Communities, Technology and Culture



Communication Techology


Abstract: This panel, based on a two year research project in Austin, Texas, seeks to understand and address information and media equity issues emerging along with recent growth of the internet and other information-based technologies.  The project was established  in 1999 in response to the lack of focused academic research that investigates the underlying social forces at work in the construction, distribution, and use of various types of information and communications media and technologies. 


Recent emphasis on the digital divide in the U.S. has served as partial catalyst for this work, but the project has gone will beyond the issue of notions about digital inequities to incorporate more broadly articulated concerns having to do with the social, political, economic and cultural construction of technology access and use in the U.S. and elsewhere.
