Ford SYNCRoximity aims to bring personalized, local deals and offers to drivers through dashboard systems like Ford SYNC. In fact, the service even won the Ford SYNC App Developer Challenge last year.

The service recently raised $500,000 in investment, reports The Next Web. And it says to look forward to "big announcements" coming in early August.

An interesting service, Roximity may prove to be another example of digital services edging in on territory traditionally held by AM/FM radio.

Clear Channel partners with daily-deals website LivingSocialClear Channel Radio  personalities will soon promote LivingSocial daily deals on the air for their market, thanks to a new partnership with the deals website.

LivingSocial will provide Clear Channel personalities with a list of local deals. The broadcasters "then choose which deals they want to promote and they improvise the plug," reports the Wall Street Journal.

Clear Channel receives a "significant" commission from the sales, according to Clear Channel Radio CEO John Hogan. And LivingSocial gains "the benefit of the relationship [our DJs] have with our listeners."

Clear Channel will also feature LivingSocial offers on its website, as well as other LivingSocial offerings.

LivingSocial -- a daily deals service similar to Groupon -- has more than 46 million members across over 600 markets worldwide.
