My guess (and it's only a guess) is that Streamline/RBR/Radio Ink picked
up the boards for little or no actual cash. The purchasers of the rest
of the radio-info assets (Talkers Magazine out of Springfield) appeared
to mostly want the name and not the boards; in the event, they didn't
get Tom Taylor and his news updates, which went off independently.
Keeping boards like these running smoothly has to be in part a labor of
love (just ask our Moderator here on b-r-i!), and if you don't love it,
you're not going to get rich doing it.
Fortunately, several of the original Radio-Info founders from back in
2006 have been building a new set of forums and keeping them warm in the
event of a shutdown like this one. I'm working with them, too!
