Nickelodeon And Clear Channel Launch Nick Radio
Nick Radio is a brand-new station that can only be heard on iHeartRadio. It will feature today's hit music, guest DJ stints by Nickelodeon stars, and Nick-branded entertainment and celebrity interviews, all which will reflect Nickelodeon's personality and surprise-filled brand of humor. The brand-new family-targeted station will be programmed by Z100 New York PD Sharon Dastur and will stream on Nick.com, iHeartRadio.com, and the iHeartRadio digital app.
President of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel Tom Poleman said, "It is such a great opportunity to work with Nickelodeon and create the first-ever Nick Radio. The combination of Clear Channel's reach and programming expertise with the fun and dedicated audience of Nickelodeon is unique in the digital and on-air space. Introducing a family-focused station like Nick Radio to the iHeartRadio platform and supporting it with an industry expert from Z100, one of the nation's top radio stations, is destined to be a home run with both our listeners and Nick's viewers."
"Nick Radio is the perfect place for Nickelodeon to serve kids with the music they love and entertain them with our great characters and funny content," said Pam Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer and President of Consumer Products, Nickelodeon Group. "Our partnership with Clear Channel's iHeartRadio will allow us to further deepen our relationship with kids across this great platform."
Additionally, Relativity and Reel FX's Free Birds, which hits theaters nationwide November 1, has signed on as Nick Radio's exclusive launch partner.
