CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO'S ONLINE MUSIC & RADIO has announced a beta launch of Videos On Demand feature on 16 of its radio websites in NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, BOSTON, WASHINGTON, D.C. and ST. LOUIS. A Video Vault of thousands of artist videos, from 40 labels including UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, WARNER MUSIC GROUP, EMI MUSIC and others will be available, beginning tomorrow (1/10).
The service will offer a completely interactive experience for listeners. In addition to watching what they want when they want it, listeners will be able to participate in key features such as "Video Challenge," where they can vote for their favorite artist video. Stations will also have the ability to customize their sites by featuring specific artists and cross-promote on-air personalities inlcuding "Featured Artist," "Top 10 Video List" and radio personality's "Favorite Pick." There will be "Buy CD" and "Share Video" viral components, as well.
"As our audience grows, we must grow with them," said CCR ONLINE MUSIC & RADIO EVP EVAN HARRISON. "We see Videos On Demand as a powerful complement to our on-air programming and the next natural step in serving our audience’s growing appetite for on-demand content."
