The partnership marks the first third-party distribution relationship for iHeartRadio, and enables its platform to better reach the growing Spanish speaking audience. The New iHeartRadio is Clear Channel’s free, industry-leading digital radio service that offers more than 800 broadcast radio and digital-only stations from 150 cities plus the ability to create custom radio stations in one fully integrated service.
