    I assume by "digital" you're referring to HD Radio, which is digital radio that co-exists with the existing analogue signal and thus doesn't necessitate any sort of phasing out. If you have an HD receiver, you can make use of all the digital sub channels (usually the digital version of the main analogue feed plus any additional channels a given station is putting out.)

    Meh. haven't listened to Radio since 2004, when I bought my first iPod and interface for my Kenwood stereo. Actually, even before that, I had car stereos that played MP3 CDs. Now with Pandora, iTunes Radio, Spotify, etc.. even more reason not to listen to crappy radio stations with never ending commercials. FM radio is slowly going the way of AM/Short Wave Radio, will still be around but very few people will use it.

    It's serious money. The more people are listening to their station, the more ad revenue they will receive. With people streaming, ad revenue is dropping off.
