Two companies with significant radio assets have announced a digital content distribution partnership. Audacy signed a deal with Urban One under which the latter will provide live and on-demand audio content to the Audacy digital platform, including Urban One’s 57 radio stations.
Corey Podolsky, VP of business development for Audacy, described Urban One in the announcement as “a power player in the audio space” and said the agreement underscores Audacy’s own “unwavering commitment to amplifying diverse voices and delivering premier audio content to the communities in which we serve.”
Audacy, the former Entercom Communications, said its app now has more than 2,000 stations including its own 230 outlets. The app also includes podcasts and other audio programming. It is available on the Apple Store and Google Play, and via social media channels.
