G Media has announced today that they have become Aiir, with the news revealed at their first ever keynote event in London.
The radio station content management platform Airwave is now also known simply as Aiir.
Luke Taylor, Aiir Creative Director said: “Bringing the company and platform together made complete sense and simplifies everything we do. Our new motto is Radio Made Simple, and the simplification of our branding is a big part of that.”
Aiir has also today unveiled their new ‘instant access’ offering meaning the technology and tools from Aiir will be available for the first time to small start-up internet broadcasters, community, hospital and public stations along with commercial stations and larger radio groups.
The extended service will be available from Summer 2015 and Chris Country has been announced as the launch partner and first station on board.
Chris Stevens, founder of Chris Country spoke during the keynote and said: “It’s such an easy system to use, yet will give our listeners so much to enjoy online. From automatically generated artist pages, to country news and gig guides, I’m so excited about getting our new site online.”
Gav Richards, Aiir Product Development Director added: “We’ve been working on the new identity and product enhancements for a while, and it’s extremely exciting to finally be able to share this with everyone. It’s just the start of things to come.”
Aiir’s new website is aiir.com and they can be found on Twitter @aiir
