FOX roadblocks iheartradio app to promote ‘Glee’


FOX is the exclusive sponsor of Clear Channel’s iheartradio application on the iPhone and BlackBerry 5/18 and 5/19 to promote the preview event for the new comedy series, ‘Glee,’ which will air after the American Idol finale on FOX on today at 9 pm ET. 

The full season of ‘Glee’ will begin airing on FOX this fall as part of its new fall lineup.  GLEE is a distinctive new comedy musical series from Ryan Murphy (“Nip/Tuck”) that combines biting humor with a soundtrack of hit music from past to present and follows an optimistic high school teacher who – against all odds – attempts to restore McKinley High’s fading Glee Club to its former glory.

As part of the sponsorship, a gateway ad will appear while the iheartradio application loads and on every third interaction, such as a station switch.
