Our commitment to accessibility translates to an obligation for community broadcasting to be anywhere and everywhere our audience is listening.
More and more listeners are going online to access their audio. As community broadcasters, we need to take advantage of these emerging and newly-established platforms to ensure that our traditional service of live and local content is available everywhere.
In 2019, the CBAA and iHeartRadio launched a partnership allowing community radio stations to stream on mobile and smart speaker devices. The CBAA is excited about the opportunities we have to take our content to a wider audience and ensure that our voice is available on every platform by which we can connect with our community. Join us for our webinar as we learn about:
- Trends in listening and how our audience consumes audio
- How smart speakers can take our service to a wider audience
- The benefits of iHeartRadio for community radio broadcasters
