Everyone's expecting APPLE to roll out the iPHONE6, and wearable devices at their event set for 9/9/2014 -- but could there be big news for the somewhat forgotten iTUNES RADIO?
Yes, writes THE NEW YORK POST. "The CUPERTINO-based consumer giant is giving iTUNES RADIO some fresh attention. Sources tell On The Money that the firm is out negotiating international music licenses in order to roll out the streaming service around the globe. Some think the deals will be bagged in time for the latest product announcements though others say late SEPTEMBER is a more realistic time frame. While iTUNES RADIO hasn’t rocked leader PANDORA just yet, PANDORA’s lack of presence in major overseas markets may give APPLE the chance to steal its signal strength."
THE POST also notes APPLE’s iTUNES content boss ROBERT KONDRK is promoting DAVID DORN to oversee the iTUNES STORE and former BEATS CEO IAN ROGERS is now running iTUNES RADIO.
