CBS Radio announced a definitive lineup of multicast programming for more than 60 of its stations in 17 markets. Some programming will launch immediately.
CBS Radio Chairman/CEO Joel Hollander termed HD Radio one of the greatest technological achievements for radio.
“We’ve been diligently converting a large percentage of our stations to a digital platform so listeners can take advantage of the superior sound quality, abundance of
programming choices, and unique interactivity with their favorite brands.”
Moves such as finalizing multicast formats are key “to the widespread adoption of
the technology,” he said.
CBS Radio converted its first IBOC station, New York’s WNEW-FM, in 1999. Currently, 60 of the Company’s 179 radio stations are using the technology with more being launched every week.
Additionally, CBS stations WUSN-FM and WJMK-FM in Chicago were among the first in the nation to launch continuously programmed HD Radio multicast channels, said the broadcaster.
