At the same time, CNET plans to launch âCNET Radio Direct,â a twice-daily, online technology news program hosted by Brian Cooley, associate VP-CNET Radio.
The Radio AM 910 programming, which was launched in 2000 near the peak of the dot-com bubble, âwas not meeting the companyâs financial objectives,â according to a press release.
From CNETâs Web sites, which include News.com and CNET.com, CNET Radio Direct will provide an early-morning and after-market summary of tech news that will be delivered digitally to registered subscribers.
âBy introducing tech audio to our broadcast audience of 100,000 listeners, CNET Radio 910 helped us establish a radio brand and category,â Cooley said in a statement. âWe will leverage this momentum by packaging the station's content for delivery via the Internet, our company's core distribution platform.â
