How social media is killing the post game radio show - LA Times

I hardly ever listen to the radio now. There was a time that when I was out of the house I’d listen to the game broadcast to keep up on the score. I don’t need to do that anymore. I have the MLB At Bat that I can use to follow the Red Sox *and* all the other games that are going on.

I also don’t listen to local sports talk on the radio. I can listen to MLB Radio on Sirius. MLB Radio isn’t perfect but the discussions and guest and better than the local stuff. If I am not driving, I can also follow the sport via the web on sites like this one.

When I’m home the MLB Network is often on the television and/or I’m on the Internet reading baseball content. There are also a lot of informative podcasts. I can literally watch any game I want to via MLB At Bat.

In other words, of all my options, radio is the least interesting or useful to me.
