ATLANTA - Jan. 16, 2014 - PRLog -- ATLANTA, GA—JANUARY 1, 2014— Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, the leading media company in America announced today that several Blacktree Music artists have been selected for Clear Channel’s Digital Artist Integration Program.

The Artist Integration Program, part of Clear Channel’s new National Programming Platform division, is designed to increase audience awareness of new music projects from both established and developing artists through on-air and online promotional campaigns. By leveraging Clear Channel’s powerful properties, including 850 radio stations in 150 cities, and its national digital platform, including iHeartRadio, Clear Channel’s free, industry-leading digital radio product, the campaigns will provide the opportunity for artists, record labels and the music industry to maximize exposure for new singles or albums, ultimately strengthening artist development and sales.

“Music is the lifeblood of so many of our stations. It’s critical to our programming success, which is why we’re passionate about artist development,” said Tom Poleman, President of Clear Channel National Programming Platforms. “The Artist Integration Program is a great example of how we can use the power of Clear Channel's multimedia platforms and unparalleled reach to speed song familiarity and create a deeper connection between consumers and music.”

Clear Channel’s digital radio medium, iHeartRadio is featuring new music from Blacktree artists Ric Atari, Bianca Star, Chanel and B.B. London for its Integration campaign beginning Jan. 1, 2014. The program will include a series of on-air artist spots that will run across Clear Channel’s Urban Radio and Urban Adult Contemporary (UAC) stations nationwide.  The campaign will drive listeners to download the single at iTunes.  The songs chosen for the program include Ric Atari’s, “Friday Night Cinema”, Bianca Star’s “Swimmin’”, Chanel’s “Love Affair” and B.B. London’s “In 2 U”.

“I am excited to participate in such a creative and cutting edge initiative as Clear Channel’s Artist Integration Program,” said Ric Atari, Blacktree Music’s CEO. “I strongly believe this program will give some pretty amazing artists the opportunity to expose qualitative music to listeners/fans who crave to connect on a deeper level.  I’m glad a medium as large as Clear Channel/iheartradio gets what this music thing is all about…actually connecting quality music to the fans that are hungry for it.  Blacktree’s artists are excited about the exposure as well as the platform.
