iHeartRadio Energizes Industry Through Concert, Online Radio Stations

A perfect storm of talent and celebrity descended on Las Vegas in September to promote and support the radio industry. The iHeartRadio festival, dubbed the “biggest live music event in radio history,” aims to promote musical awareness and bring people of differing musical tastes and backgrounds together. The show did just that as A-list performers sang, danced and celebrated everything radio means to them and the music industry in general.

The star-studded group covered a broad range of musical styles: performers included Aerosmith, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Usher, Lil Wayne, Green Day, No Doubt, Deadmau5 and Jason Aldean, just to name a few. Newcomer Calvin Harris said he “jumped at the chance” to be part of the iHeartRadio Music Festival, saying he’s never seen a bill as “diverse and huge” as that of this year’s event, according to the iHeartRadio website.

As radio gets attention on a mass scale, many people are noting how far we’ve come from the days of boom boxes and antenna adjustments. It’s no secret that changes in technology have sparked changes in every industry across the country – the way the nation absorbs, understands and disseminates information and entertainment has changed drastically in just the past few years. But don’t be fooled into thinking these industries are going anywhere; many of them are simply changing form. The radio industry is evolving into something bigger, better and more connected than ever before.

iHeartRadio is a free, online streaming radio conglomerate that allows listeners to tune in to some of their favorite stations, even if they’re in different parts of the country. The service is owned by Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, one of the biggest and fastest growing media corporations in America.

With these advancing opportunities in technology come more opportunities for entertainment jobs in Los Angeles, New York and beyond. Getting into the radio scene now, even through part-time jobs or entertainment internships, could mean playing a key part in the industry’s renewal and evolution. For people interested in music jobs, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco are always hiring bright new talent. Check out all the listings on 4EntertainmentJobs.com now!
