Three broadcast groups -- Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc.; Midwest Communications, Inc.; and Federated Media -- have announced they will make their stations' online streams available on the TuneIn platform. Listeners will now be able to connect to the 105 stations collectively owned by these broadcasters by on TuneIn's website, mobile apps, and on devices for which TuneIn provides tuning services.

Beasley owns stations in markets like Miami, Philadelphia, and Las Vegas, while Midwest and Federated stations are mostly mid- and small-market.

Palo Alto-based TuneIn is a free service that aggregates Internet radio content from all over the world, with more than 60,000 broadcast and Internet-only stations and more than two million on-demand programs. "The alliance pits TuneIn directly against Clear Channel competitor iHeartRadio, which prefers that its pacts with broadcasters be exclusive," Tom Taylor writes in Radio-Info (here). In addition to the 850 Clear Channel stations, iHeartRadio offers streaming from stations owned by Cumulus, Greater Media, Tribune, and more.
