iHeartRadio is an Internet radio platform owned by Clear Channel Communications. Founded in April 2008 as the website iheartmusic.com, iHeartRadio now functions as both a music recommender system, and a radio network that aggregates content from over 800 local Clear Channel radio stations across the United States, as well as stations owned by companies other than Clear Channel. iHeartRadio is available online, via mobile devices, and on select video game consoles. Prior to 2008, Clear Channel's various audio products were decentralized, with individual stations on their own sites and a site known as the Format Lab providing feeds of between 40 and 80 networks that were used primarily on Clear Channel's HD Radio subchannels. In April 2008, the iHeartRadio brand launched as www.iheartmusic.com _ a website featuring entertainment news, national news, music content including albums, singles on demand and music videos as well as access to over 750 Clear Channel radio stations online.
