CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO will make public an application programming interface (API) and affiliate program for iHEARTRADIO. The Developer Program will enable third parties and developers to easily integrate iHEARTRADIO's unique content and services into their own products, web pages and applications.
Using iHEARTRADIO's Developer Program, third-party developers will have the opportunity to create their own innovative versions of iHEARTRADIO on their platforms. The iHEARTRADIO API includes access to many of the service’s features, including its live broadcast and digital-only stations and Custom Stations as well as a deep social media integration.
"By making iHEARTRADIO's API available, we’re empowering developers to bring the full strength of iHEARTRADIO to life in their own creative ways," said CLEAR CHANNEL DIGITAL Pres. BRIAN LAKAMP. "Opening our API will unlock exciting opportunities to enrich the unique, combined live and custom radio experience that only iHEARTRADIO provides. This move also builds on our commitment to be everywhere our listeners expect us to be, with the best products and services."
