As a source of information, local radio transcends the conveyance of explicit knowledge about a community and provides a tacit knowledge of the character of a community and a person's place within it. The speed and pattern of the development of internet radio, however, is greatly influenced by the decisions of organizations like the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission around the world. Such influence will tend to shape the impact internet provided radio has, and the speed at which it develops. The unique characteristic of radio will increase the importance of local radio stations as they become more ubiquitous around the world.
