iHeartRadio Opens Its Doors To NPR Stations iHeartMedia has announced an agreement with NPR that will allow its Member stations to make their live News Talk programming available via iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia's free all-in-one digital music and live streaming radio service.
In support of the public radio mission, all stations that join iHeartRadio will also have access to fifty percent of their individual iHeartRadio landing page's digital banner inventory to encourage listeners to donate and directly support the station's public programming.
"The addition of NPR's Member stations helps to create even more signature audio content for iHeartRadio listeners," said Darren Davis, President of iHeartRadio & iHeartMedia Networks. "By joining forces, it is the perfect way for public radio stations to reach listeners on new platforms and to provide iHeartRadio users with additional high-quality News Talk programming wherever they are."
"As part of our commitment to meeting audiences wherever they may be, this agreement provides another option for audiences to find public radio on their preferred listening platforms," said Stephanie Miller, Managing Director of NPR Digital Services.
"iHeartRadio has been a valuable partner in helping us deliver and promote the content audiences most want, from The Current's Prince music marathon, to our kids' stream Rock the Cradle to Garrison Keillor's final broadcast as host of A Prairie Home Companion," said Diana Flotten, Director, Digital Partnerships and Business Development at American Public Media.
