Head of iHeartRadio Australia Geraint Davies said: “Adding the power of the ABC to iHeartRadio Australia is another major milestone in the continuing growth of the platform in Australia.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to becoming the number one digital and audio entertainment platform in Australia. Being a truly agnostic platform we enable both public broadcasters and other commercial radio companies to live side by side, all to the benefit of the Australian listening public.”
Michael Mason, director at ABC Radio, added: “Joining iHeartRadio is an amazing opportunity for ABC Radio to reach new audiences and make our content available for easy discovery.
“We are the home of Australian stories, music and content and now audiences have another place to connect with us beyond our existing platforms. Listeners will be able to explore ABC Radio’s music, talk and specialist genre offerings in all their diversity and range.”
