One of the webcasting pioneers, American FM radio station KPIG, has shut down its streaming service. Station managed to simulcast its highly popular live shows for whopping seven years before it had to call quits.
Station simply states that the new webcasting royalty fees that were ruled in this summer by Librarian of Congress are simply too high to maintain the service.
