Radio Moves and Media Quick Takes


Tee-Roy, iHeartMedia's on-air personality at 93.3 The Beat in Jacksonville, Power 99 in Philadelphia, and in other markets; tells local Jacksonville TV station News 4 that his listeners say play Kanye West in light of Ye's recent anti-Semitic posts on Twitter that have resulted in him being banned by Elon Musk. “I thought more people would be like, ‘Hey, don’t play Kanye. I don’t want to hear him.’ But the response has been the total opposite So, to me, it’s shocking,” Tee-Roy said. “The biggest thing that came up has been race. Everybody’s said, ‘He’s a Black man and we need to support him as a Black man.’”


ABC News president Kim Godwin has decided to take Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes off the air, saying they’ve become too much of an internal and external distraction. Look for the hosts to return rather quickly as the ratings for 'GMA3' from last week saw a significant boost from the prior two weeks before the news of their affair surfaced. Godwin said that the relationship is not a violation of company policy.


Samantha Chatman has been promoted to weekend morning anchor at Chicago's WLS-TV ABC 7 Eyewitness News.

NextRadio Launches iOS FM Radio Streaming App


NextRadio is still committed to unlocking the FM Chip in all phones...

NextRadio, the app with the most FM radio stations, announced today the launch of an iOS version of its free app for iPhone mobile device users.  NextRadio offers the most local radio FM stations available through a single app to Apple users for the first time.

The TagStation-owned NextRadio app allows listeners to remain connected with any city or community while on the go, making radio listening easy, portable and enjoyable.  The free app allows listeners to interact with local stations and browse by station, genre or location, giving users complete control of their listening experience.

One of NextRadio's most innovative features is the Live Guide, which allows users to see and select from what's playing on local stations in real time all at once, rather than search through each station for something they want to hear.  The Live Guide interface displays album art and program details, creating a more intuitive and immersive experience for local audio content and music discovery.  Ninety-one percent of the population listens to radio each week to learn about new artists, breaking news and entertainment, and to hear from their favorite radio personalities.


"We're thrilled that NextRadio is now available for use on both iOS and Android devices," says Paul Brenner, President of TagStation the power behind NextRadio.  "We want to empower all users to enjoy local FM radio without having their content restricted by geographic location or choice of device and this expansion of our capabilities and market penetration is an important part of our strategy to give more people the easiest way to access mobile radio that they can enjoy at home, at work and on the go."  

NextRadio is still committed to unlocking the FM Chip in all phones but wants to offer consumers the choice to listen to live local radio on any phone.  We developed a streaming version until this goal becomes a reality.

NextRadio original FM smartphone for Android has also been updated to support streaming and is available in the Google Playstore.

  1. BTW. Every phone has a built in antenna that is used to receive Wi-fi. That antenna can be used to receive local FM radio stations for free without data usage. However with most carriers offering unlimited data, NextRadio may have an even harder job of convincing the public that their app is useful or serves a real purpose.
