  1. I guess the only question is, what type of programming are these stations offering that will appeal to an international audience when a lot of them are struggling to provide good enough content to attract a local audience?

  2. It’s not about appealing to an international audience. It’s about making your product available to your listeners on emerging and relevant platforms.

  3. I agree with Geary. The problem Corus stations will have is that when someone chooses to listen on Apple Music, IHeart or TunedIn they will see so many other options that they will probably listen to the Corus stations less or tune them out entirely.

  4. The temperature on Mars may reach a high of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit (20 degrees Celsius) at noon, at the equator in the summer, or a low of about -225 degrees Fahrenheit (-153 degrees Celsius) at the poles.

  5. Including your basket of stations with an online aggregator isn’t a victory it’s admitting defeat.
    People pining away for the NW of old might try LBC out of London in the UK. Live talk shows 24/7 and commercials that aren’t as annoying. With the time difference you can catch their first class morning show instead of Coast to Coast.
