Cumulus migrating station websites to Triton before offering streams on iHeartRadio

CumulusOver the next four to six weeks, Cumulus plans to migrate management of the web services for its 500+ radio stations to Triton Digital's platform. Triton Digital's suite of tools includes streaming delivery (via its StreamTheWorld), audience measurement (Webcast Metrics), ad-insertion, and design of custom media players.

The move is a necessary step before bringing Cumulus' streams into Clear Channel's iHeartRadio directory, said CEO Lew Dickey.

"Dickey said a standard platform was needed before the stations could all be launched on iHeart," writes Radio Online, "which is why there's been a delay in getting them on the Clear Channel app."

Cumulus annouced its partnership with Clear Channel and iHeartRadio in early December 2011 (RAIN coverage here).
