Clear Channel Expands iheartradio's Reach At CES
January 5, 2011

Clear Channel's iheartradio digital service is expanding its reach further, thanks to a handful of announcements at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. First off, iheartradio will be included in the Toyota Entune multimedia system, which is being unveiled this week at the 2011 CES.

Additionally, iheartradio will be phased into a growing line of in-dash multi-media navigation systems during the first quarter of 2011 by mobile video entertainment manufacturer Rosen Entertainment Systems. Their Factory-Look Multi-Media & Navigation systems will include a built-in iheartradio interface for iPhone, Android and Blackberry devices, which will wirelessly link to Rosen units via Bluetooth Data and Audio connections. iheartradio functions and features are then accessible through Rosen’s high-definition 6.2” to 8.0” touch-screen LCD displays.

For the home, iheartradio will be available through iHome's products, thanks to the iHome+Sleep app. Three new app-enhanced iHome clock radios are being unveiled this week, all compatible with iheartradio: the iA63 App-Enhanced Alarm Clock FM RadioSpeaker System with Motorized Rotating Dock, the iA17 App-Enhanced Color Changing Alarm Clock FM Radio and the iA91 App Enhanced Dual Alarm Stereo Clock Radio with AM/FM presets will be available later this year.

The iheartradio Web site ( has also been revamped, with a uniform log-in process across mobile and online platforms, a personalized home screen, social integration for sharing favorite stations and videos, enhanced navigation and search capabilities for all radio stations and a remodeled "On Air" screen.
