EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic WQHT (HOT 97)/NEW YORK has partnered with global music and content platform, TIDAL. Beginning at 2p (EDT) on SUNDAY, JUNE 7th, TIDAL will exclusively live stream TIDAL X: HOT 97 SUMMER JAM from METLIFE STADIUM in NEW JERSEY. TIDAL members will be able to view the entire nine-hour live stream and a 25-hour replay.
“HOT 97 began streaming SUMMER JAM in 2012 as a way to connect with our audience and fans around the world who may not be able to attend the live event,” said GM DEON LEVINGSTON. “In 2014, more than 1.3 million viewers tuned in to the stream across multiple distribution partners. Given the value of the SUMMER JAM brand, the performances and behind-the-scenes action, we’re excited to have an exclusive partner like TIDAL behind this year’s event. Through this partnership, HOT 97 is not only able to provide fans with the hottest content, but also able to work with the biggest emerging music platform out today. As the Digital Age progresses, radio must progress with it. We’re excited to work with TIDAL to expand HOT 97’s presence, as well as give viewers a taste of the live action via the stream”
