WASHINGTON, April 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America — Saturday, April 19th. The first all-news radio format in the U.S. debuted on this date in 1965, as WINS-AM in New York City switched from rock and roll to rip and read. Almost 20 years earlier, the station had notched another first by broadcasting every New York Yankees game live, both home and away. The station shut off the music — its last record was the Shangri-La's "Out in the Streets" — and became "all news, all the time." The format has been successfully replicated in cities around the country. Today in the U.S., there are over 7,200 radio broadcasting establishments, employing over 124,000 people, with annual industry revenues of around $19 billion. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey at www.census.gov.
