Clear Channel adds talk to iHeartRadio

July 24, 2013

(AP)—Clear Channel says it is adding talk shows and listener-generated content to iHeartRadio, expanding the online radio service's offerings beyond music.

Clear Channel, which operates more than 850 terrestrial radio stations as well, said Wednesday that users who update their iHeartRadio apps on the iPhone and Android phones will be able to search for talk shows on those phones. For now, iHeartRadio Talk is only available on the Web, but the company says it's coming to mobile phones in September.

Clear Channel says users can access talk shows such as "Good Morning America," ''Direct from Hollywood" with Ryan Seacrest, Rush Limbaugh's "Rush Daily Update Minute" and TED Talks.

Users will also be able to submit their content that iHeartRadio may feature alongside established shows.
