Jelli And Triton Launch Crowdsourced Radio Into Syndication

TRITON MEDIA, together with JELLI, will now syndicate their new crowdsourced radio programs, ROCK JELLI and POP JELLI. They will air in markets from coast to coast, as well as stream live at www.jelli.net. As part of the rollout, JELLI and TRITON (through DIAL GLOBAL) have signed deals with 10 new FM stations -- WBOS/BOSTON, WPST/PHILADELPHIA, KXTE/LAS VEGAS, WJBX/FORT MYERS, WJLK/MONMOUTH-OCEAN, WKRL/SYRACUSE, WKLL/UTICA, KISN/BOZEMAN, KBAZ/MISSOULA, MT and KTRS/CASPER, WY.
JELLI is a web-based game that lets listeners search a catalog of songs and vote for what they want to hear. Other players vote songs up or down to decide what will actually air next. When a song is actually playing on the air, listeners can also vote whether it "rocks" or "sucks." If enough players think it "sucks," the song is taken off the air instantly, even if it's mid-song.
"Each version of JELLI, Rock or Pop, is designed to provide the player both a fun and engaging experience at their favorite radio station's website, and the casual listener a rich and entertaining new form of radio," commented DIAL GLOBAL Pres./Programming KIRK STIRLAND. "JELLI is designed to fit right into the sound of each affiliate station, and to stand out to both listeners and players as a unique experience."
