Ibiquity said the move means all top 10 broadcast groups have sped up their digital radio conversions.
“The digital experiences offered by HD Radio superior sound, the ability to multicast additional content on FM stations and data that can be displayed on receivers, will allow us to continue producing the best entertainment possible for consumers,” stated Farid Suleman, Citadel chairman/CEO.
