EWTN Global Catholic and Evolution Added to iHeartRadio
The EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network is now available on Clear
Channel’s iHeartRadio menu. It is the first Catholic
broadcaster to be available on iHeartRadio.
President and CEO Michael P. Warsaw stated in the announcement: “Our foundress, Mother Angelica, took the
Lord’s command to carry His message to the ends of the earth seriously. Our
partnership with iHeartRadio enables us to carry on that legacy using the
latest in digital technology.”
EWTN Global Catholic Radio content is heard on hundreds of AM and
FM stations in the U.S. and has an active Web presence.
Separately, another iHeartRadio addition just announced is Evolution, an electronic
dance music station.
The station will be hosted by the
Pete Tong of BBC Radio 1’s “Essential Mix” show. The iHeartRadio-exclusive
station will feature a number of veteran and new DJs as guest hosts.
Tong said electronic dance music “has seen a major rise in
popularity in North America over the past few years.”
Evolution will hit the streamwaves on Nov. 12. Saluting the
launch will be a Nov. 14 concert with DJ/producer Afrojack at the iHeartRadio
Theater presented by P.C. Richard & Son in New York City.
