The simulcasts of the terrestrial stations replace KISS, MIX, MUSIC SUMMIT, NASHVILLE and BOLLYWOOD & BEYOND, which CLEAR CHANNEL had been programming for XM.
"CLEAR CHANNEL's goal is to be wherever our listeners are with the content they want and expect, and that includes offering our top stations and formats on the satellite platform," said CLEAR CHANNEL Pres./CEO JOHN HOGAN. "These five stations have fans across the country, from people who listen in their home cities to those who have discovered them on iHEARTRADIO, our digital service. Now we can extend them to listeners who tune in via XM SATELLITE RADIO."
