iHeartMedia, NBC Team Up on News
iHeartmedia and NBC are collaborating on new news programming. iHeart’s radio news network will provide its 1,000 affiliates and iHeartMedia’s 850+ O&O’s with access to NBC News broadcast coverage, along with an hourly newscast provided to its network 24/7. In addition, digital music and streaming radio service will feature “NBC News Radio” as a source for national and international news content.
The collaboration means NBC News will now span all media platforms. iHeartMedia’s 24/7 News Network affiliates and owned stations will have access to global content from NBC News’ television, including primetime specials, political events and breaking news reports. Those will also stream online iHeartRadio on a new “NBC News Radio” station. That means millions more will be able to listen to it, said Elisabeth Sami, SVP, NBC News Group.
With bureaus and staff correspondents throughout the United States, 24/7 News Network produces content solely for radio with anchored news, sports and weather reports serving 1,000 broadcast radio stations as well as digital radio affiliates via the iHeartRadio platform.
24/7 News Network SVP/GM Chris Berry said the addition of NBC News Radio on iHeartRadio “showcases both our companies’ commitment to providing our consumers with the most credible news wherever they are, whenever they want it.”
