CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT and ROBBINS ENTERTAINMENT have announced an agreement that enables ROBBINS ENTERTAINMENT artists to share in all of CLEAR CHANNEL's radio revenues.
"I've always said that the music industry needs to figure out a way to give listeners what they want," said ROBBINS Founder CORY ROBBINS. "CLEAR CHANNEL has always believed in playing the best music on its stations, regardless of the size of the label or the national picture, and I think CLEAR CHANNEL's strategy will help Internet radio become a viable business, encouraging its growth and enabling listeners to discover and enjoy our roster of the hottest dance artists. The growth of Internet radio will be a boon for all parties -- artists, labels, distributors, and fans."
"CORY ROBBINS has a rich history of introducing great artists from a variety of genres," said CLEAR CHANNEL CEO BOB PITTMAN. "He understands what music and dance fans want and he has been a pioneer in delivering it to them, wherever they are, on whichever device suits them best. CORY also understands that the health of our industry depends on all of us working together to produce the music, the products and the services that our customers want. These kinds of market-based agreements satisfy our listeners love of music, increase artistic opportunity and diversity, and fuel innovation, job creation, and growth in the Internet radio sector."
CLEAR CHANNEL's agreement with ROBBINS ENTERTAINMENT follows several other agreements reached this year, including BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP, GLASSNOTE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, DASHGO, RPM ENTERTAINMENT and NAXOS.
