Salem, AirKast Partner On Mobile Apps

April 28, 2010: Salem Communications teams up with AirKast to launch no fewer than 57 radio station mobile applications for iPhone and BlackBerry, and by the end of next month, 71 Salem stations will have apps available.

"We are thrilled with the mobile apps that the AirKast team has produced for Salem," Salem Web Network SVP/GM Tom Perrault said. "Both the iPhone and BlackBerry apps have been everything we could ask for -- and AirKast delivered them incredibly quickly. Our entire company is eager to see the continued growth of our radio stations via mobile apps in the coming years."

The Salem apps, using AirKast's AirBridge and TuneKast, offer streaming, lyrics and album info music reviews, videos, podcasts, and music sales through iTunes. All apps are free with no registration required.

AirKast President/COO Simon Moy said, "Salem immediately understood the importance of branding and changing content in real-time for its mobile applications. AirKast gives Salem these core necessities while delivering multimedia-rich and feature-robust applications for its listeners."
