Radiolicious is being used by Genesis Communications in Florida to stream its stations on iPhone and iTouch smart phones.

The announcement was made by Bruce Maduri, president of Genesis Communications, which owns WHBO, WWBA and WMGG in Tampa, WHOO and WAMT in Orlando and WIXC in Melbourne. All are AMs.

In the company's press release, Maduri took a sideways poke at another platform:

"The iPhone technology is the right digital platform for our radio stations. Unlike HD Radio, the iPhone delivers digital transmission, free of interference, that consumers want and hunger for. By offering our stations on this platform, we now broadcast over the air, on the computer, on the iPod and on the iPhone. We deliver in analog and digital, anywhere listeners demand to hear our radio stations."

Bobby Adams of GSS/Radiolicious stated, "This is a perfect example of terrestrial broadcasters bringing localism into the digital realm." Radiolicious is a subsidiary of Global Security Systems.
