Future Radio Broadcasting and Gears?

In this ever-changing world of music entertaining, I wondered how well will radio listening keep up in the future? What new equipment and broadcast system will appear in the near future? Nowadays we have Satellite FM Radio, Cable Music System, Radio Data System and World Satelitte Short-Wave Radio (overseas only) which already pulled away many long time radio listeners. Any suggestions?
Fidelity (on FM) is not a concern at major broadcast stations in most markets. The number of degradations a signal passes though before broadcast is high. Then the turd is hammered by final processing.

Similar process happens in recording/matering, when wrong thinking poobahs declare louder is best, the heck with clipping!
