Nickelodeon, an entertainment brand for kids, and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, a leading media company in America, have announced the launch of Nick Radio.
Listeners will get “All the Hits, All the Slime,” on iHeartRadio — Clear Channel’s digital radio platform.
Nick Radio will feature today’s hit music; guest DJ stints by Nickelodeon stars, kicking off with Sam & Cat star Ariana Grande, Big Time Rush and Austin Mahone; and Nick-branded entertainment and celebrity interviews.
The brand-new family-targeted station will be programmed by Sharon Dastur, Program Director for the Z100 — New York’s Hit Music Station, and will stream on Nick.com, iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio digital app.
Additionally, Relativity and Reel FX’s Free Birds, which hits theaters Nov. 1, has signed on as Nick Radio’s exclusive launch partner.
“Nick Radio is the perfect place for Nickelodeon to serve kids with the music they love and entertain them with our great characters and funny content,” said Pam Kaufman, chief marketing officer and president of Consumer Products, Nickelodeon Group.
“Our partnership with Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio will allow us to further deepen our relationship with kids across this great platform.”
