Using unique, targeted data to feature different playlists in each market, the show highlights the top seven songs of the day, comprised of recently Shazam’d tracks and new and trending tracks from across the country.
Delivering content seamlessly across all platforms, “The Shazam @ 7 Countdown” will also be accessible on each station’s official website, Facebook and Twitter pages, and apps for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) and Android (phones and tablets).
“We’re always striving to deliver innovative and engaging experiences and opportunities for both our listeners and our clients, and this partnership with Shazam checks every box,” said Julie Adam, Senior Vice President, Radio, Rogers. “I use my Shazam app all the time. It’s a complete game changer for discovering the songs we love, and allows us to really cater to the different tastes of our local listeners to bring them even more of the music they want in real time. There are definitely more exciting announcements to come as this partnership continues to evolve.”
