By • Dec 23rd, 2008 • Category: ShowBizRadio

ShowBizRadio is wrapping up nearly three and a half years of covering community theater in the DC area. While we always accept feedback on specific articles published on the site, we’ve put together a brief survey about the complete web site. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to fill out the survey. This will help us decide how we will expand the site in 2009. ‘Help Improve ShowBizRadio – take the survey now.’

Update: (12/30/2008 12:35am) We’ve received a fair number of useful and interesting responses so far. Responses like “you suck” are not useful or constructive criticism. We’ll be closing the survey down later this week, so please respond if you haven’t yet. Thanks. We’re planning on posting an analysis of the responses starting on January 5th.
