NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Clear Channel Radio has changed the name of their division to Clear Channel Media to better reflect the evolution of its business.
Clear Channel Media will continue to operate more than 85O radio stations but looks to continue expanding their online presence through web radio and websites such as iHeartRadio.com.
Among Clear Channel's digital offerings are content and creation delivery network Premiere Radio Networks; traffic report/data network Total Traffic Network, The Katz Media Group and RCS, which provides scheduling and broadcast software for radio, Internet and television stations.
"Over the last few years, I've watched as Clear Channel Radio has pushed beyond the traditional boundaries of radio to reach more Americans every month than any other media company through an unmatched combination of broadcast, satellite, online and mobile assets," said Bob Pittman, CEO of Clear Channel. "Under John Hogan's continued strong leadership, the new Clear Channel Media and Entertainment brand underscores that we are taking our brands and content wherever our listeners expect to find it. And, in the future, as new places emerge where people want to access our powerful brands and content, we'll be there, too." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
