ABC Streams TV Shows On iHeartRadio Service

ABC will make content from a number of news programs, as well as “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The View,” available on Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio digital radio service. The content will be part of a new “talk” feature on the service that streams 1,500-plus radio stations.

The deal covers some exclusive content from “Good Morning America." iHeartRadio will help determine talent to appear on the show’s 2014 summer concert series -- while the show will feature notable iHeartRadio DJs, starting in the fall, weekly.

The agreement also involves cross-promotion, as iHeartRadio will plug ABC shows for lengthy periods in both the fall and spring with on-air mentions and via digital and social media. ABC will promote the iHeartRadio “Good Morning America” partnership on a Times Square display and via digital media.

ABC has been looking to expand its news brand, largely through a new deal to create a joint English-language network targeting Hispanics with Univision.

Among the stations accessible through the Clear Channel service are a number in the talk genre throughout the U.S. Those listeners might be attracted to the ABC content, such as clips from “Nightline” and “20/20.”
