Slacker Radio Adds The Weekly Alternative Countdown
April 19, 2016 at 6:09 PM (PT)
SLACKER RADIO has launched a new station, THE WEEKLY ALTERNATIVE COUNTDOWN, hosted by RED. THE WEEKLY ALTERNATIVE COUNTDOWN is the 40 most popular Alt songs on SLACKER, as dictated "EQ" (Engagement Quotient).
"EQ" tallies all the plays, skips, bans, shares, and “hearts” on every song across our entire platform," explains SLACKER VP/Programming KEVIN STAPLEFORD. "THE WEEKLY ALTERNATIVE COUNTDOWN joins our suite of weekly countdown stations: THE SLACKER TOP 40 (the 40 biggest songs across all genres), THE WEEKLY HIP HOP COUNTDOWN, and THE WEEKLY COUNTRY COUNTDOWN…all of which rank among our 10 most-listened-to stations."
STAPLEFORD added, "I’m excited about this station because it allows us another opportunity to merge the worlds of pure metrics and real storytelling. RED is an incredibly talented host, and we give her free reign to do whatever she wants. And the music is great because SLACKER listeners have great taste."
A new ALTERNATIVE COUNTDOWN airs every TUESDAY. Why TUESDAY? "Because TUESDAY is rad," said STAPLEFORD.
