BandPage And CCM+E Connect Musicians To Radio Listeners Across The Nation
February 25, 2014

BandPage, the platform more than 500,000 musicians use as a central online profile to reach, engage and monetize millions of fans, is joining forces with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment to bring digital artist-curated content and tour information to radio fans across the U.S. Beginning in the second quarter of 2014, BandPage will power artist profile content, including bios, photos, tour dates with quick links to buy tickets and more, throughout Clear Channel's industry-leading digital radio service iHeartRadio, as well as more than 840 Clear Channel radio station websites across North America.

Prior to BandPage, musicians were limited in how much control they had over what information and content was shared across the Internet to their fans. Now, enabled by a host of new artist-friendly services and apps, artists are empowered to seize their favorite moments and interact with their fans like never before.

"Radio has been a cornerstone of the modern music business for nearly a century and, understandably, musicians have been looking for a way to connect directly to radio fans in the digital era," said J Sider, CEO, BandPage. "Partnering with Clear Channel to provide artist-curated content and offers to iHeartRadio and Clear Channel's radio station websites represents an incredibly powerful way to help artists grow their fan bases, drive additional revenues and, ultimately, build their careers."

The integration with Clear Channel will bring more than 243 million listeners across the nation access to the most up-to-date and accurate information directly from their favorite bands.  Now, fans will be able to see the latest tour schedules, with quick links to buy tickets, as well as the newest photos, bios and album release information for hundreds of thousands of artists across Clear Channel's iHeartRadio, and all of its local radio station websites, seamlessly while they listen to the music they love.

"Clear Channel has the unique ability to directly connect fans with their favorite artists through live interviews, events and once-in-a-lifetime contesting," said Brian Lakamp, President of Digital for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "We are constantly looking for ways to connect listeners with new music and connect musicians with new fans.  Working with BandPage will enable yet another way for our listeners to digitally access the most up-to-date and relevant artist content out there in a seamless and easy way - any time they want."
