This Christmas season there are more stations streaming Christmas music than ever before. According to BRS Media there are more than 500 holiday stations available online. That number represents both pureplay/online stations as well as streaming broadcast stations.
This year nearly 75% of terrestrial radio stations featuring Christmas music are streaming online, that’s up from 60% in 2008 and up from only 35% in 2005. The total number of Christmas stations streaming has more then doubled in the past five years.
“It’s extremely exciting to see the growth in the number of Holiday stations webcasting online,” remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc., “Internet Radio listeners are just one click away from hundreds of stations.. everything from Classic Standards & Smooth Jazz to Oldies & Country are all online.”
