iheartradio introduces commercial-free programming


CC Radio unveiled the latest version of its top-ranked iheartradio mobile app, featuring commercial-free content from top radio personalities, over 750 local radio stations, celebrity-hosted channels, exclusive videos and on-demand traffic reports.
Listeners can now stay connected to their favorite radio personalities, like Sean Hannity, Dr. Laura, Jim Rome and Bob & Tom, while on-the-go. These nationally syndicated programs are available commercial-free through the iheartradio mobile app with a special subscription. Users can stream the talk shows 24/7, download podcasts, and select program archives to listen to on-demand.
“We’re always looking for innovative ways to keep our audiences connected to their favorite talent and programming,” said Evan Harrison, EVP Clear Channel Radio and President of the company’s digital unit. “The addition of commercial-free programs and hundreds of new stations delivers an unprecedented level of choice.”
The iheartradio mobile app, available for iPhone/iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Android smart phones, recently surpassed 7 million unique downloads and usage continues to increase weekly. Mobile listening supplements computer streaming and already adds more than 10 percent to a station’s total streaming audience, which itself adds up to 15 percent to terrestrial listening.
