From Long Island to Fiji, college students flocked to the sleepy little town of Ithaca to learn the how-tos and how-not-tos of broadcasting. From that influx came some of the future leaders and celebrities of the broadcasting industry. Television stars were born here, and some of radio's future stars were nurtured to succeed in an industry that impacts the daily lives of Americans. Ithaca's rich broadcasting history includes two college radio stations and several locally owned and operated stations. From the Greaseman to Keith Olbermann, Ithaca was the launch pad for numerous successful careers in music, talk, news, business, and satellite radio. Through vintage photographs, Ithaca Radio shares a history of local radio and some of the great voices that have called Ithaca home.

Peter King Steinhaus and Rick Sommers Steinhaus are alumni of the radio culture at Ithaca. They are brothers who grew up in a New York City suburb, exposed to radio greats like Dan Ingram, Ted Brown, Don Imus, Marv Albert, and Charles Osgood. They eventually ended up at Ithaca College's renowned School of Communications, and each embarked on a path they look back on with great love and admiration for the town where they started. Peter is a Florida-based correspondent for CBS Radio News. After a long radio career in New York, Rick is the broadcast membership liaison for SAG-AFTRA in New York.
