“Tim Westergren is a trailblazer in Internet radio and developed a game-changing, innovative platform that helps musicians find their audience and people discover and enjoy new music,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA.
Westergren started the personalized radio service in 2000 with the Music Genome Project. He is also a composer and musician — including production, audio engineering, film scoring and live performance.
According to the CEA the LIT program gives policymakers and technologists the opportunity to learn from exhibitors and products. It also provides information to assist officials in evaluating federal policies that affect the consumer electronic industry.
