Xconomy and WGBH Team Up to Cover the Boston Innovation Economy

9/12/11

Boston area radio listeners may have noticed something pretty cool on Friday morning: Xconomy’s on-air debut, during “Morning Edition” on WGBH’s 89.7.  The Xconomy Report segment, which will be a regular feature Fridays at 7:49 am, is the product of a new partnership between us and WGBH Radio. It should come as no surprise that several of us on the Xconomy staff are huge public radio dorks, and WGBH is one of the best in the biz, so we’re really excited about this one.

The idea behind the segment is to give 89.7 listeners a weekly dose of news and analysis about how technology, life sciences, and other innovation industries are affecting the economy and our lives. It is part of a broader effort on WGBH’s part to grow its coverage of innovation—and of course it’s a natural extension of what Xconomy does on our website, in our feeds and newsletters, and through our events.

So without further ado, here’s last week’s segment:

Please tune in to WGBH at 89.7 on Fridays at 7:49 to catch future installments of the Xconomy Report. We hope you’ll enjoy it, and look forward to your feedback at editors@xconomy.com.

    I DID hear that segment on Friday and thought maybe I had been missing something for weeks. Fun to have caught the inaugural broadcast. Congrats!
