Infinity’s WUSN Begins 24/7 Multicasting

Infinity Broadcasting has begun multicasting its digital signal at WUSN(FM) in Chicago; the company believes this is the first commercial station to do so continuously.
“WUSN(FM) HD-2” will be programmed independently of station WUSN(FM) and focus on music from new country artists.
Both digital broadcasts will also include song, title and artist information as text displayed on HD Radio receivers.
The VP/GM of WUSN(FM) and WJMK(FM), Dave Robbins, said the extra channel compliments its main country station.
WUSN went IBOC in June 2003. The FCC granted the station experimental authorization to multicast.
Infinity Chairman/CEO Joel Hollander said the move would be the first of many related to Infinity’s digital broadcast strategy. “We will continue to be aggressive in converging new and traditional media through creative programming and advanced delivery methods.”
