Rogers Media announced today that two of the newest brands in their 55 radio station footprint have launched new “best in class” web destinations. 91.7 The Bounce in Edmonton and 102.3 BOB FM in London recently joined the Rogers group of radio stations. The new web destinations give both BOB and The Bounce the ability to publish real time content that can be easily shared across their listeners’ social networks. The websites are built with the popular blog style format and are designed to get listeners quickly and easily to the content that matters the most to them.
Content highlights include the ability to “Listen Live”, check out the station’s recent playlists and morning shows, buy songs, and share what you’re listening to with friends and followers. The websites also feature robust multimedia galleries, Twitter and Facebook posts, a proprietary loyalty club and exciting contest sections.
91.7 The Bounce in Edmonton and 102.3 Bob FM in London are premium additions to the Rogers group of radio stations and we are very excited to announce these new branded destinations. Our focus is on delivering a great listener experience across all our websites and mobile applications and these new sites are great examples of our commitment to that goal,
said Robyn Walters, Director & GM Radio for Rogers Digital Media.
