    Mods, if this is the wrong forum, please forgive me. It doesn't seem to belong in any of the others either.

    I'm in the very early stages of putting together an internet talk radio station that is dedicated to the Jets. Local sports radio is too much of a mixed bag in a market of this size. On good days I want to hear about the Jets, on bad days I want to hear ghosts and others vent. Not only are there other sports, but we have to sit through Giants crap as well.

    Initially, since this is starting from total scratch and no one is listening, shows will be pre-recorded podcast style and run on the station. No one wants to broadcast to themselves. Particularly here at the very beginning, the same content will loop over and over.

    As time goes on, if this catches on, live shows with hosts taking calls and maybe even interviews with someone affiliated with the team (a popcorn vendor maybe!?) is a possibility. But that's way down the road. Gotta crawl before you can walk before you can run.

    I am not going to post the name or link of the station here so as not to be trolling for listeners. That is not my intention at all. What I'm looking for is contributors.

    Anyone with any radio experience, or who has a podcast they wouldn't mind running, or even those with minimal to no experience and willing to try it out - please let me know.

    Again, this is extremely early stages (currently running whatever the latest episode of my podcast is and two short shows), so it's wide open and will take time to get a structured schedule in place.

    Let's have some fun.

    Why not talk about the Titanic, Edsel, Hindenburg and space shuttle Columbia instead? The success rate is about the same and more people are familiar with them.

    Just my opinion but there's definitely not enough to talk about if you're just talking Jets.

    If you want a 24/7 operation or even a daily show you're going to to need more stuff to talk about.

    If I was doing this right now I'd make the show 33% Jets, 33% NFL trends and 33% Football Analytics. I still think you'd run into content issues but you'd have more outs when the Jets topic of the hour/day/week had run dry.

    Sounds like you’re trying to start a corporation, bro.

    Talking about the jets 4 hours a week is depressing enough

    I hear you, but unlike a "real" radio station, internet radio is dirt cheap. It MIGHT cost as much as 200 a year total, and that's if i go nuts.

    The problem with trying to do anything sports related is that there's, like, 10,000 other sports everything out there. Radio stations, blogs, podcasts, YouTube channels, TV - I'd NEVER get any type of market share. Nor do I want to.

    I'll take a shot at Jets only, which, as small as it is, is at least a somewhat untapped niche. It'll be a fun hobby!

    Nah man, if I was gonna put 100s of thousands into bandwidth, ads, and hiring people, then sure. But this... This will start out as a glorified podcast, bunch of people having fun talking about something they're passionate about and if it grows a bit, word of mouth will get around and maybe it'll grow organically to a point.

    I mean, what's the ceiling on something like this? A few interviews with beat reporters? I'll be happy if I can get it established to a point where people know it's there, there's a few live hosts, and angry fans call in to vent. The overhead is crazy low, so at my age I'll consider it a fun hobby since i don't spend my money on booze and broads anymore.

    I get what you are trying to do. I just don't think there's enough to talk about for any team to fill a 24/7 stream.

    The best team in Pro sports doesn't have enough material to keep that type of stream going and the Jets certainly not.

    The point about finding related topics to talk about is that it will keep the people doing the talking sane and it is much more likely to keep your listeners listening.

    Don't let the haters get you down.
    You never know what will work till you try... you'll get as much out of it as you put in.

    And why not link it here? This is your target audience.
    You might consider video support so you can run it on YouTube.
    Frame out a workable format that sets an identity for your show and build on that.

    I've listened to @MaximusD163 & @GasedAndConfused podcast and enjoyed it a lot.

    I appreciate it man - I was kidding about feeling bad. I'm trying to make it happen regardless. At worst, maybe it'll become a community podcast for people who don't want to start their own. But, I do kinda feel bad about not boozing and snatch hunting anymore...haha

    Is there a section on the site where we can all promote our digital products? I have a podcast as well - would love to promote it and support others. If there isn't a specific forum for it, maybe we can suggest one.

    I was kidding as well, but I do get a little depressed every time I hear "at my age..." Especially from people who are probably younger than I am.

    We don’t have a separate section but we try to promote out posters by stickying their threads time to time. Will help you out as well
