The radio industry is regulated by the FCC and is represented by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). Radio revenue is generated from commercial advertising by corporations and small businesses. Nearly half of all radio stations in America are owned by a major radio chain which includes Clear Channel, CBS Radio and Entercom. A high percentage of music played on corporate stations comes from the four major record labels. Independent artists looking to gain radio airplay should start out with specialty shows and build a story from there.
