PortraitSteve Church is the President of Telos Systems. Before founding the company, he was a Technical Director and talk host for radio stations such as WMMS/Cleveland, and WFBQ/Indianapolis. As co-inventor of Livewire, he is a pioneer in IP Audio technology. Steve designed the first DSP-based product for radio broadcast applications, the Telos 10 digital hybrid. He was the first to design a product using MP3 and played a key role in popularizing the codec for PC and Internet music applications. Skip Pizzi is Contributing Editor at Radio World magazine, where he writes "The Big Picture" column that appears in every issue. He has also spent 11 years in various positions at Microsoft, initially as Audio Systems Engineer in the Interactive Media Production unit, and most recently as Senior Policy Analyst for the company's Entertainment & Devices Division. Previously, Skip served as Technical Editor, Editor and Editor-in-chief at Broadcast Engineering and BE Radio (now Radio) magazines. Earlier he spent 13 years at NPR, where he served as technical director for numerous award-winning programs, and founded the company's technical training program. He is also a published author (see below). Skip is a frequent speaker at international conferences on broadcasting, audio and music, and currently co-chairs the Surround Sound Audio Task Group of the U.S.'s National Radio Systems Committee.
