RAIN 10/8: 227 iPhone apps coming for 227 Citadel stations

Posted on: 10/08/2009

YOU GET AN APP, AND YOU GET AN APP, AND…”

Citadel will roll out individual station-branded iPhone apps for all 227 of its stations, according to a report from Inside Radio. Reportedly, the former big market ABC Radio stations will get apps first, by the middle of this month. The company plans a major on air and online marketing campaign to promote the apps, and will develp apps for Blackberry users later.

Only the largest-market Citadel stations currently stream to iPhones. Developing separate apps for individual stations contrasts with larger broadcasters like Clear Channel and CBS, which have single apps that give users access to a wide array of those companies’ stations across the U.S. Cupertino, California-based Airkast developed the app for Citadel’s WPLJ/NY, but news coverage didn’t indicate whether it will be creating all of them.

In related news, Senior Vice President of Citadel Interactive John Rosso was named President of Citadel Media today.

SLACKER TWITTER FEATURE LETS LISTENERS SHARE MUSIC INFO AS THEY LISTEN

Slacker Personal Radio has announced it’s added Twitter integration to its service. Listeners can now set their account preferences to automatically “tweet” song and artist info for their favorite music in real time. Those following the listener on Twitter can see the listener’s station changes/plays, favorite songs, banned songs, and banned artists. The tweeting can be automatic or manual, and users customize which info they want included. Finally, it works with any platform iteration of the service (PC, Mac, smartphone).

XBOX 360’S PRESENTATION OF LAST.FM DISAPPOINTS ENGADGET

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced it would add Last.fm access — among a few other web features — to its Xbox 360 gaming system, but details up until now were sketchy. Engadget recently got an up-close preview of the new features, and found only one thing in the package they didn’t like: Last.fm. It “was a bit of a downer, since you can’t do anything else while listening to the music,” they report (here). Facebook, Twitter and other integrations looked good though.

NEW WQXR TO MOVE LATER-ERA CLASSICAL ONLINE

Tonight at 8pm (ET) is the official launch of Classical WQXR 105.9, the former New York Times- and now WNYC-owned and programmed public radio station. As the new over-the-air programming is to reportedly drop all compositions from the 20th Century and later, WQXR will launch an Internet radio stream “with a contemporary focus” called Q2 (available atWQXR.org). The channel will also feature festival programming and live concerts from around New York. Read more here.
