A system for enabling Internet or intranet broadcasting that offers audio automation and webcast automation is disclosed. Multiple webcast channels, or stations, can be created and managed, including Internet Radio, Internet Television, and Scheduled Website Publishing. The channels created can use a variety of media sources, including popular Internet streaming formats. The channels are run using a program schedule created by the webcaster, or by using the system to automatically determine a program schedule utilizing criteria provided by the webcaster or listener. The listener logs onto the Website using a Web browser having player software. Time barriers can be inserted in the program schedule to force a program to run at a specific time. A default script runs a default program in the event an off-air condition occurs. Statutory performance license compliance and reporting is automatically provided for along with automatic advertising insertion. Monitoring and alerting functionality is also provided.
