NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Clear Channel Radio, the leading media company in America with a greater reach than any radio or television outlet, today announced that the New iHeartRadio, its free, industry-leading digital radio service, will extend its commercial-free programming on its Custom Stations through April 1, 2012.
“Because Custom Stations are only a feature of the New iHeartRadio, we have the luxury of being able to extend our commercial-free Custom Stations till April 1, 2012.”
The New iHeartRadio brings users a best-in-class customizable digital listening experience that combines the best of both worlds to deliver everything listeners want in one free, fully-integrated service: More than 800 of the nation’s most popular live broadcast and digital-only radio stations from 150 cities, plus user-created Custom Stations which provide listeners more songs, better music intelligence, more user control and deeper social media integration.
iHeartRadio is consistently in the top 10 downloads of free music apps for the iPhone and in the top five for Android; and given its 65 million listening hours a month, 44 million downloads of iHeartRadio mobile apps and more than 12 million fans across Clear Channel station and radio personality Facebook pages, Clear Channel continues to be one of the most popular digital music destinations.
“The New iHeartRadio has exceeded our expectations - and more importantly, those of our fans - since it launched in September at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. It offers our listeners everything they want from a digital radio service in one completely integrated, free experience,” said Brian Lakamp, President of Clear Channel Digital. “Because Custom Stations are only a feature of the New iHeartRadio, we have the luxury of being able to extend our commercial-free Custom Stations till April 1, 2012.”
The New iHeartRadio is available at iHeartRadio.com and on the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android.
