Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio digital streaming platform has added stations form Cox Media Group and Emmis Communications.
Cox Media Group President Doug Franklin said the strategy is to serve listeners on as many digital platforms as possible.
Eighty-six Cox stations and 20 Emmis stations will become available. The broadcasters say the new arrangement will not preclude any current websites, streaming or apps the stations currently have in operation.
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Chairman and CEO John Hogan called the move a win-win that provides Cox and Emmis stations “a broadcast-friendly platform that has the ability to offer their listeners a fully integrated digital experience.”
