Westwood One to Offer Multicasting Programs

NPR announced plans to offer programming for member stations that are splitting their FM digital signals and now so is Westwood One, the first commercial program provider to indicate these plans.
Westwood said it would make its lineup of news, sports, talk and entertainment programming, as well as its traffic and information content available to HD Radio FM broadcasters multicast services.
Westwood’s audio programming and traffic data content will be showcased at Ibiquity’s booth at the NAB convention. Home and auto radios will receive HD Radio broadcasts containing Westwood content.
Westwood traffic content is also part of a traffic demo in which an integrated HD Radio receiver and GPS Navigation system will demonstrate real-time traffic overlaid on navigation systems.
