Embraces medium further with new free daily podcasts.
Following its launch of all-podcasting KYCY (KYOU Radio) San Francisco, Infinity moves even deeper into the fledgling medium by announcing it will offer free daily podcasts from its nine news stations, with flagship WINS (1010 Wins) New York set to lead the way in July.
The podcasts, which will vary in length, will include local and national news, sports, business and entertainment headlines, as well as weather and traffic updates, plus content developed exclusively for download.
“We are increasingly living in an on-demand world, where listeners want to receive our award-winning content via alternative means,” Infinity chairman/CEO Joel Hollander said in a prepared statement. “Podcasting, while relatively new, is being adapted by more and more users everyday, and is a perfect complement to our business model.”
In addition to WINS, Infinity’s news stations include WCBS-AM New York, KFWB and KNX Los Angeles, WBBM-AM Chicago, KCBS San Francisco, KYW Philadelphia, WBZ Boston and WWJ Detroit. Those stations began streaming their programming in March.
The company says that since launching in May, KYCY has received 1000 podcast submissions for broadcast.
