RadioIO to Double Stream Offerings by February 1

By January 31, 2008

Follow me on:

RadioIO (“radio eye-oh”) is expanding the amount of streams offered to Internet listeners. By February 1, the webcaster will increase the amount of channels it offers from 28 to 60. The new selection will be complemented by traditional formats like Pop and Classic Rock to more niche streams like "Newgrass" and "Women in Rock". (Right: RadioIO Logo. Graphic Credit: © RadioIO)

RadioIO founder Mike Roe recently pointed out that Internet broadcasters have more flexibility in creating and modifying channels because of the economic advantage over traditional Radio or even Satellite Radio.

In a press release, Roe said, "We can increase, modify and enhance our channel lineup infinitely without having to build another tower or reallocate spectrum, and do it at a tiny fraction of the cost that these other broadcasters would incur."

He's right - a fact I highlighted in an April, 2006 article entitled, "The Coming Devaluation of AM and FM Radio"

The company points out, "Music selections on RadioIO are hand-picked by music experts and aficionados known as stream hosts, who regularly interact with RadioIO’s audience."
