As NEXTRADIO begins its second year, a major update to the smartphone app will be revealed to the radio industry at the RAB/NAB RADIO SHOW. The press conference to unveil NEXTRADIO’s new look and features will take place at booth 427 on WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 10th at 2p (ET).
“The first version of NEXTRADIO met the expectations people have about traditional radio. Since launching a year ago we learned a lot about what consumers, handset makers, wireless carriers and radio people would do to improve the experience. The NEXTRADIO update we’re revealing at THE RADIO SHOW will exceed expectations. It will deliver to radio listeners, advertisers and content owners something they could not have imagined - a unique, compelling way to interact with broadcast radio that has never before existed,” said TAGSTATION SVP PAUL BRENNER.
Within the first year, NEXTRADIO achieved more than 785,000 app downloads with more than 1,000,000 hours of listening to more than 10,200 FM radio stations. NEXTRADIO is preloaded on more than 25 devices by SPRINT, BOOST MOBILE and VIRGIN MOBILE and several of those HTC models support NEXTRADIO on all carriers including VERIZON WIRELESS, AT&T, T-MOBILE and regional carriers.
