MOTOROLA has publicly unveiled "MOTOROLA iRADIO," a subscription music service that operates from a mobile handset. The service is initially launching with 435 commercial-free radio channels, with some content being generated by CLEAR CHANNEL.
Said MOTOROLA DIGITAL MEDIA SERVICES VP and GM MIKE GAUMOND, "MOTOROLA iRADIO is truly a revolution in digital radio, offering more choice, higher audio quality than satellite radio, and features that allow listeners to identify and purchase the music they like. Today, we’ve taken a giant leap beyond traditional and Internet-delivered radio by introducing a single service that incorporates incredible choice, the discovery of new music, impulse acquisition, and seamless portability."
Added CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO EVP/Dist. Development JEFF LITTLEJOHN, "MOTOROLA iRADIO lets us deliver top-rated talk content and custom music channels to listeners wherever they are throughout their day. Whether they're underground in a subway tunnel or traveling outside their local radio market, they can still take along their favorite CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO content. We believe iRADIO is an important addition to the choices now available to consumers and the service has our unqualified support."
