The Huffington Post will make Clear Channel's iHeartRadio the exclusive home for its HuffPost Live Radio webcast.

HuffPost Live Radio streams live programming twelve hours daily (10a-10p ET), and repeats during the off-hours, according to the New York Business Journal. Beginning July 1, the stream will be available exclusively on iHeartRadio's website and iOS and Android mobile apps.

Just to be clear, HuffPost Live (here) seems (right now) to be live and archived video content from Huffington Post. HuffPost Radio (here) is the outlet's podcast/on-demand segment.

The Business Journal's Dan Orlando points out, "in May, Clear Channel hired Brian Kaminsky, formerly of the Huffington Post to run its digital radio division."

In HuffPost guest column, Pandora's Westergren calls for "technology-neutral solution" to "absurd" royalty situation

Tim Westergren"It may surprise Americans to learn that the form of radio they listen to has profound implications for how much the artists who perform the music get paid," writes Pandora founder Tim Westergren in a new editorial for the Huffington Post. He goes on to point out the "absurd" difference in the rates webcasters, SiriusXM and AM/FM broadcasters pay to performers.

The answer, argues Westergren, is "a technology-neutral solution that assures fair compensation to artists while encouraging new voices and new technologies. Legislation that establishes a fair royalty rate setting standard for Internet radio will drive investment in webcasting, which ultimately means greater revenue and greater opportunity for working artists."
