TeamRock to leave national digital radio
TeamRock Radio is making the change from broadcast to podcast as it comes of the national digital radio platform.
The station signed a two year agreement with Arqiva in 2013 but won’t be renewing it, instead signing up to a new deal with 7digital to make all of its programmes available to download, whilst continuing to stream 24/7 online.
TeamRock has reached one million registered users, four times its original target, most of which are based outside the UK.
Commenting TeamRock CEO Billy Anderson said: “TeamRock.com is a global business. We are proudly based in the UK, but the speed of our growth means we constantly have to adapt to global demands for our product. Our fan base want streaming, downloads, specific programming, interviews and insight alongside the ability to listen back to what we produce at their leisure.
“This new collaboration with 7digital will allow us to provide that service. The future, for TeamRock.com, is to deliver audio that caters for how society wants to consume it. People are choosing when and how they access audio, rather than just traditional live programming.”
The radio division will continue, but it will also deliver bespoke products for our fan base and radio partners worldwide. We already have syndicated partners in various parts of the world, including Australia, Europe and Asia.
TeamRock.com has also this week moved into new facilities in Pentonville Road, London, where audio, magazines, digital, visual, sales and marketing, will be housed under one roof.
Simon Cole, CEO of 7digital added: “We are proud to be the chosen partner for TeamRock as the company makes this major step change. Helping brands develop a compelling and creative audio presence in the rapidly growing global marketplace is a fundamental plank of our strategy at 7digtal and we look forward to playing our part in making TeamRock the destination for rock fans all over the world however they want to consume their music .”
TeamRock Radio launched commercial free in May 2013.
