Publish date:

The HD Digital Radio Alliance endorsed Beasley Broadcast Group's HD2 programming in Miami. Since last summer, Beasley has been airing new programming at "Kiss Country 99.9's" (WKIS-FM) sister country music station, Gretchen 99.9-HD2 and at "Power 96's" (WPOW-FM) sister station, 96.5 - HD2, as we've previously reported.
Beasley President/COO, Bruce Beasley said the company has converted nearly half of its 41 stations to HD Radio and plans to have about 70% of its stations converted by year-end. Beasley is multicasting supplemental channels at five stations in three markets.
Beasley says it was the first to broadcast a public HD Radio multicast demonstration on a commercial FM station and was first to broadcast an HD Radio signal and introduce multicast channels in both Miami and Philadelphia.
