The New IHeartRadio Adds College Radio Stations

Bookmark and Share
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, the leading media company in America with a greater reach than any other radio or television outlet, today announced that it will add college radio stations to the New iHeartRadio, its free, industry-leading digital radio service beginning later this month. The New iHeartRadio offers more than 800 broadcast radio and commercial-free digital-only stations from 150 cities, plus the ability to create custom radio stations, delivering listeners everything they want all in one fully integrated service.

College radio is a broad category that spans everything from student-run stations featuring block programming and music, news and sports programming to professionally-run stations with specific formats. At launch, iHeartRadio's College programming will include more than a dozen of the leading college stations from eleven states across the country — with additional college radio stations to be added in the coming months -- and iHeartRadio users and college radio fans can tune in to some of the country's most highly-recognized and listened to college radio stations, including:

Appalachian State's WASU – Rock, North Carolina
Connecticut College's WCNI – Block Programming, Connecticut
Dartmouth College's WFRD - Modern Rock, New Hampshire
Denison University's WDUB – Block Programming, Ohio
DePaul University's Radio DePaul – Block Programming, Illinois
Emerson College's WERS – Adult Alternative, Massachusetts
Flagler College's WFCF – Block Programming, Florida
Green River College's KGRG – Alternative Rock, Washington State
Ithaca College's WICB – Modern Rock, New York
Rice University's Rice Radio – Block Programming, Texas
Seton Hall University's WSOU – Hard Rock/Metal, New Jersey
Stanford University's KZSU- Block Programming, California
Temple University's WHIP – Block Programming, Pennsylvania
College of Wooster's WCWS – Block Programming ,Ohio

"Bringing college radio stations to iHeartRadio is a great source of local and independent programming that offers our users a more diverse listening experience and also provides listeners new opportunities for music, news and sports exposure and discovery," said John Hogan, President and CEO, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "Many of our top on-air personalities started their radio careers at college radio stations and we are glad to give back by providing these great college stations with an industry-leading national distribution platform -- iHeartRadio."

This new college radio programming furthers iHeartRadio's commitment to providing listeners with an increasing variety of music choices from various formats, and will serve as a connection for alumni to their alma maters.

"We are thrilled to be among the inaugural stations offered as part of iHeartradio's college radio programming," said Mark Maben, General Manager of WSOU at Seton Hall University. "WSOU has long been an innovator in college radio and partnering with Clear Channel and leveraging iHeartRadio's resources and national reach is a logical next step for our station. As a student-run station, working with iHeartRadio and Clear Channel means new opportunities for our students to learn and prepare themselves for careers in the 21st century media environment."

"We are so excited that Clear Channel will offer a selection of college radio programming, including Ithaca College's WICB, as part of the New iHeartRadio," said Chris Wheatley, Manager of Radio Operations at Ithaca College. "College programming on iHeartRadio is a terrific addition for users, and also provides an exciting opportunity for our students involved with WICB. Partnering with Clear Channel and becoming part of iHeartRadio's national platform extends the reach of our broadcast to Ithaca graduates, students, parents and radio fans throughout the country."

"I applaud iHeartRadio for adding the college radio category and bringing attention to the vibrancy and excitement of college radio and to the young talent the radio industry needs and is searching for," said Dan Vallie, founder of the Keller Radio Talent Institute at Appalachian State University. "Many of the students in college radio today have already been bitten by the radio bug and now it's in their blood. And this generation not only benefits from the hands on learning lab experience they gain at WASU, but they also bring to the industry video and web skills and are social media savvy."
