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!

the word!!
