HD Radio now on 1,500 stations


iBiquity Digital announced the 1,500th HD Radio station has gone on the air: Clear Channel’s rock station WROV-FM 96.3 in Roanoke, VA. "We welcome WROV to our rapidly growing HD Radio family," said Bob Struble, iBiquity CEO.  "In just under a year, an additional 500 stations have upgraded to digital HD Radio broadcasting. That’s more than one a day.  This growth can be attributed to the strong commitment not only of the radio broadcasting industry but also of consumer electronics leaders like Sony, JVC and Apple, as well as major national retailers such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Circuit City and others."
