IBA was founded in 2014 and is totally committed to assisting broadcasters in maximizing their internet property. Over the past year, we’ve increased membership more than 70% and are being noticed and serviced by major labels such as RCA, Epic and eOne. We are a champion in launching independent labels and artists, many whom are blocked from commercial radio for a variety of unfortunate reasons. Our member radio stations are monitored by BDS or DRT. We are currently in communication with Mediabase to design a digital reporting panel.
In addition to expanding the imprint of digital radio stations, one of the primary missions of the IBA is to support and provide internet(digital) broadcasters with tools to function in a similar fashion as commercial radio stations, with tools such as securing sales and revenue generating opportunities for your station and website, artist interviews, service from major and indie record labels, live remotes and special events, contesting and marketing.
The Urban Buzz (www.theurbanbuzz.com) currently posts the IBA playlist each Tuesday and you are encouraged to review the playlist and submit your station playlist for inclusion. As we expand the participating stations, each format will have a dedicate playlist.
Inspire desire: “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”
