TuneIn will be the official mobile app and online audio player for all Federated Media stations, the company announced. The broadcast group owns 15 radio stations in Fort Wayne, South Bend and Warsaw, Ind.
Federated Media programming has been available on TuneIn for months, but this new agreement makes TuneIn its digital solution for mobile and desktop listening. Every Federated Media station will trade in their existing mobile apps in favor of the free TuneIn offering, and Federated Media stations will promote TuneIn on-air. Each station will utilize custom-branded TuneIn audio players, enabling listeners to listen to programming online.
“TuneIn now provides all Federated Media stations additional digital distribution to reach our listeners through over 200 connected devices, ranging from mobile phones and tablets, to smart TVs and cars,” said Federated Media Chief Strategy Officer James Derby.
TuneIn is available on more than 200 platforms to listeners in 230 countries and territories. Existing investors include Institutional Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures and General Catalyst Partners.
