Reported in Broadcast:
The RadioCentre is preparing to launch a commercial rival to the BBC’s internet radio player.
Andrew Harrison, RadioCentre chief executive, said yesterday (Thursday) at the Radio 3.0 conference: "The RadioCentre will start to showcase, commercial radio online with the launch of an online radio player that will stream all of UK commercial radio – to our stakeholders: advertisers, media agencies and the radio industry."
It is hoped that the service will boost listening figures in the same way the BBC’s player has done, since launching in 2002.
Further details of the player will be unveiled in the next few weeks.
