Canby is the home of a brand-new podcast with an ambitious vision. Canby Now is a new kind of media outlet, dedicated to bringing fun, engaging, thought-provoking, interesting and high-quality local news and content to the Canby community.
The creators of Canby Now, Tyler Francke and Tyler Clawson, believe podcasting is well-positioned to be a major player in the future of local news. Podcasts are one of the fastest-growing mediums in the world, and are consumed by younger demographics (particularly the 18-34 age range) at significantly higher rates than traditional forms of media.
Also unlike most traditional media, podcasts are uniquely portable and easy to multitask with. You can bring a podcast with you wherever you go, and listen to it on your morning commute or while working in the garden. Many daily podcast listeners tune in while jogging, riding a bike or working out. In short, a podcast is easy to incorporate into your daily routine without changing your daily routine.
And, finally, a podcast can be produced with a much leaner budget than a TV broadcast or print newspaper, without sacrificing quality or integrity. This allows us to provide content 100 percent free to listeners, while offering opportunities to potential advertisers that are much more affordable than traditional forms of advertising.
