NEW YORK (Hypebot) – Goom Radio has secured $16 million in Series A funding from Wellington Partners Venture Capital, Elaia Partners and Partech International. Goom, which combines free ad-supported dj hosted streams with user preferences, has tested successfully in France and will be rolled out in the US later this year.
Goom Radio U.S. was launched in March 2009 and operates from the former Clear Channel Z100 studios in Jersey City. The company is led by Rob Williams, former president of Clear Channel New York, and chief sales officer Drew Hilles, who led dMarc Broadcasting through an acquisition by Google, where he served as a director for four years.
