CC Radio’s Online Unit surpasses Live 365


Since its inception just over two years ago, Clear Channel Radio's online network has gone from a weekly streaming cume of 316,000 listeners to 1,375,000-a 335% increase. The company's network is now outpacing Live365 and is quickly catching up to LAUNCHcast and AOL Radio (which are both down in streaming CUME during the same time period). 

SmartMedia observation: All the more reason why radio has a horse in this race when it comes to battling the CRB Royalty Rates and pushing Congress to pass the Internet Radio Equality Act. People DO listen to their favorite terrestrial radio stations online.
