Now streaming: Rotten Tomatoes on the radio. The movie-review aggregation site announced the creation of their own radio channel, a weekly one-hour call-in show hosted by the website's editor-in-chief, Matt Atchity.  It will air on Thursdays on the satcaster's Stars Too channel.  The first show by the Time Warner-owned website will premiere June 7 at 6 PM EST.

If you're constantly surfing between your Netflix queue and Rotten Tomatoes, something convenient just happened: A Better Queue.  This new application combines Netflix with Rotten Tomatoes for lists of streaming movies that only have fresh, red tomato reviews.

In the print world, AdWeek reports that Conde Nast has a growing magazine readership with millennials.  In certain categories, 18-to-24 year olds are reading more magazines than ever -- providing hope for the print world and proof to grandparents that this generation does more than text and goof around on G-Chat.

Wired will release its inaugural issue, published in January 1993, for free on the iPad on Friday.  The issue features a 12,000-word oral history from the original team that founded the magazine in Amsterdam, including founding editors Louis Rossetto and Jane Metcalfe. When the magazine, which was sold to Conde Nast in 1998, released its May 2011 issue for free on the iPad, it was downloaded 200,000 times.
