Triton Media, together with Jelli , the company that puts radio in the hands of its listeners, announced that their new crowdsourced radio programs, Rock Jelli and Pop Jelli, have launched into national syndication. They will air in markets from coast to coast — from Las Vegas to Bozeman to Boston to Philadelphia. Programs are also streaming live at www.jelli.net.
As part of the roll out, Jelli and Triton have signed deals with 10 new FM stations: WBOS Boston, MA; WPST Philadelphia, PA; KXTE Las Vegas, NV; WJBX Fort Myers, FL; WJLK Jersey Shore, NJ; WKRL Syracuse, NY; WKLL Utica, NY; KISN Bozeman, MT; KBAZ Missoula, MT and KTRS Casper, WY.
Jelli is a web-based game that lets listeners search a catalog of songs and vote for what they want to hear. Other players vote songs up or down to decide what will actually air next. By playing listeners accumulate Rockets and Bombs they can use to propel a song quickly toward the top of a playlist, or knock it off completely.
“Each version of Jelli, Rock or Pop, is designed to provide the player both a fun and engaging experience at their favorite radio station’s website, and the casual listener a rich and entertaining new form of radio,” commented Kirk Stirland, president of programming at Triton’s Dial Global syndication division. “Jelli is designed to fit right into the sound of each affiliate station, and to stand out to both listeners and players as a unique experience.”
