Broadcasting & Cable Yearbook ceases publication


A passing of a major institution in the broadcast biz: The Broadcasting & Cable Yearbook, formerly the Broadcasting Yearbook, was a dog-eared fixture on many broadcasters’ desks since probably before WWII.

But the website confirms what a reader told us they got in the mail recently: a notice from its publisher, Bowker of New Providence NJ, that says automatic payments will no longer be made due to its publication not continuing. The 2010 issue was the last. Obviously, the $395 reference book was replaced by free online access to most of the data therein. Since it was an annual publication, it also had a lag in up-to-date information.
