BONNEVILLE has launched "iCHANNEL" on the HD side channel for Talk WTOP-F/WASHINGTON. iCHANNEL replaces Adult Hits "GEORGE RADIO," which had been broadcasting on 103.5-2 since early APRIL.
A nationwide initiative for BONNEVILLE, iCHANNEL is a radio station featuring independent and unsigned artists from all over the world and spanning all musical genres. It has been broadcasting as an Internet-only station out of ST. LOUIS since 2005. Artists may submit their music for consideration and track their airplay via www.ichannelmusic.com.
The music that is submitted goes through rigorous evaluation by radio music programmers to ensure it meets their stringent criteria for airplay.
"There are tens of thousands of artists who have never had a voice like this before," says BONNEVILLE/DC VP JOEL OXLEY. "Even though the station features unsigned artists, the music that is submitted goes through rigorous evaluation by radio music programmers to ensure it meets their stringent criteria for airplay. So it's a really great, fresh-sounding station featuring music that you just haven't heard and can’t hear anywhere else."
