GROOVESHARK has rolled out "BROADCAST," which will allow users to create and share their own live-streaming online radio show. The company explains, "Music fans and radio show personalities will use BROADCAST to host listening sessions for friends, coworkers and people all over the world. Broadcast gives anyone the opportunity to hop on the air, hand-pick tunes to serve up, and record their own voice for listeners across the web. For the first time ever, the everyday person now has the ability to create a radio show with global reach."
"We're excited to launch the first ever truly democratized radio platform, and look forward to seeing web DJs grow into celebrities the way YOUTUBE has created homegrown video celebrities," said GROOVESHARK CEO/Co-founder SAM TARANTINO. "This is a major leap forward for the web, as the world now has an audio voice to complement YOUTUBE's video voice and TWITTER's microblogging voice. If the 20th century was characterized by terrestrial radio DJs, the 21st century will be characterized by viral radio DJs and homegrown web personalities."
