With more than 50,000 “audiosodes” that span more than 20 categories – from business and news to comedy, lifestyle and sports – listeners will enjoy customizable, on-demand content from top-rated talk and entertainment shows.

“We’re bringing radio into the digital age, offering music fans more options than any other service currently in the market. iHeartRadio has one of the largest music catalogues and is the only digital music service that combines custom and live radio,” said TRN’s CEO Jane Hastings. “iHeartRadio delivers everything listeners want in one free, easy to use service and we look forward to extending our reach through the iHeartRadio platform.”
