    Upon completion of the merger of CBS Radio with Entercom, will Entercom acquire the Radio.com app and add their stations on the app? If they do, this would eliminate the need of downloading individual apps for each one of Entercom’s stations (Alpha has a similar issue), and would allow centralized access to all of Entercom’s stations on one app like iHeartRadio (Which consists of radio stations owned by iHeartMedia, Cumulus, Cox, Beasley, Emmis, and Connoisseur).

    The merger agreement gives Entercom the rights to the Radio.com domain and all property associated with it.  So, Entercom would have the option to add its stations to the app, but there’s no guarantee that will happen at this point.  Entercom could also shut the whole app down and use the domain for something completely different.  There’s no guarantee it will do that either.

    As Bill points out, Entercom currently makes its stations available on TuneIn.  That arrangement may or may not continue in the future.  My guess is that it will, but it doesn’t mean Entercom won’t also be available on Radio.com.

    I’m still hoping that Entercom will make use of the Radio.com app once the merger closes.

    Don’t Forget Entercom would have to get CBS Radio’s Play.it podcast platform too.
