Clear Channel Communications it one of the largest owners of over the broadcast radio stations in the US, maybe the largest with 850 channels.
This year they held the iHeart Radio concert in Las Vegas, a two day affair in which some of the most popular music performers appeared including Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas, Alica Keys and Coldplay just to name a few.
The I Heart Radio Facebook page has almost 1.8 million likes.
They acquired the domain name iHeart.com in February of this year, which is now the centerpiece of what appears to be a new service that may take a serious run at Pandora and even Sirius/XM.
Clear Channel is the original registrant of iheartradio.com which was registered back in 2007.
Yesterday Clear Channel registered the domain names, ihearttraffic.com as well as iheartweather.com
They don’t own iheartsports.com, something they should have bought earlier this year as well before launching the product but wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to acquire that domain.
