RadioTime, developer of technology for finding and listening to radio online, announced the hiring of Dan Halyburton as the company’s new President. Halyburton, whose experience includes leading some of the first efforts to stream terrestrial radio over the Internet, will report to RadioTime CEO Bill Moore. Halyburton spent 25 years with Susquehanna, where he was the SVP/GM for Group Ops. Most recently he was SVP/Market Manager with Emmis, overseeing operations for Emmis’ three NYC stations.
Halyburton tells RBR that beyond the technology of what RadioTime is offering, “and the side that I really expect to get involved in, aside from the obvious work of operations and building the company further, is the streaming side of the offerings that stations will have. I think that RadioTime will look to really be a partner to radio stations. We’re going to go out and look for financial opportunities for ourselves and our station partners. You are usually welcomed as a guy who shows up with some revenue. We’re also going to find ways to help broadcasters with all of their efforts on the streaming side.”
RadioTime provides a quick way to find local, national, or global radio programming airing on more than 50,000 AM/FM and Internet stations. Listeners can use RadioTime to automatically detect what is airing on their local stations, browse by affiliates like ESPN or RadioIO, and search for specific programs or on-air personalities, not just station call letters or genre.
