JELLI will launch the world’s first terrestrial radio stations completely powered by the social web later TODAY (6/30). LAS VEGAS will be the first market to launch JELLI as a 24-hour radio format. LKCM RADIO GROUP KHIJ and AURORA MEDIA KVBE listeners will be able to choose in real time every song that plays on the air via JELLI's website or JELLI's free iPHONE app. One station will generally play Pop music and the other Modern Rock music, but both will be branded "JELLI."
It's up to the JELLI community on each station to decide, in real-time, what tracks get on the air. To participate, listeners simply visit www.jelli.com/vegas or download the JELLI iPHONE app, sign up for a free account, and begin voting.
"We're thrilled to launch today in LAS VEGAS, the place for entertainment innovation," said JELLI CEO MIKE DOUGHERTY. "Radio is inherently social. Starting today on JELLI 96.7 FM and JELLI 94.5 FM, LAS VEGAS listeners can play along together using the web and their iPHONES to create the most engaging and fun radio experiences LAS VEGAS has ever seen."
"We are changing LAS VEGAS radio forever with JELLI's revolutionary social radio experience," said LKCM Pres. GERRY SCHLEGEL. "We look forward to creating a tight relationship with the listening community with these JELLI-formatted stations."
