The Clear Channel Big Announcement: iHeartRadio to take on Pandora with Music Festival featuring Lady Gaga, Usher, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj [VIDEO]

This is the announcement heard all over the country on Clear Channel radio stations from coast to coast.

In a slight twist of the immortal words of Public Enemy; Should you or should you not believe the hype?

RYAN NAKASHIMA -AP Business Writer LOS ANGELES — Radio station giant Clear Channel Communications Inc. is revamping its website and mobile products to imitate the personalized music offerings at Pandora, an online service that is growing in popularity. Bob Pittman, chairman of media and entertainment platforms for Clear Channel, said the success of Pandora Media Inc. proves that people like being able to stream songs according to their personal tastes on mobile devices.

But do they really need a mega concert set in Las Vegas on September 23-24 to promote this? Apparently so...The iHeartRadio Music Festival is being billed as the biggest live music event in radio history. The festival hosted by Ryan Seacrest will be streamed live on iHeartRadio.com and across the iHeartRadio mobile app as well as Clear Channel websites.
