XM might be the enemy for some broadcasters, but for Clear Channel, XM is a distribution partner.
The big radio company announced that five of its stations have begun simulcasting on the XM satellite radio platform, replacing other Clear Channel content XM had aired.
The stations are KIIS(FM), which airs top 40 out of Los Angeles; WHTZ(FM), CHR/top 40 from New York; WLTW(FM), adult contemporary in New York; WSIX, country out of Nashville; and WGCI(FM) in Chicago, an urban station.
In the statement, John Hogan said the company’s goal is “to be wherever our listeners are with the content they want and expect.”
The company also simulcasts those stations through iHeartRadio.
