Corus believes in the fusion of new media and radio as a powerful, personalized tool to inform, interact with and entertain our listeners. Corus is the radio industry's leading interactive group, providing listener engagement not only on air but also online and on mobile platforms. Corus was the first Canadian broadcaster to feature an iPhone streaming application and the first to offer Apple iTunes integration through radio station websites enabling listeners to download Corus Radio content through their BlackBerry devices or smartphones. Since its launch, nearly 400,000 listeners have downloaded the Corus Radio app. Strong local websites and robust media players drive six million hours of online tuning for Corus Radio station's each month.
Corus Radio encourages Canadian talent through initiatives such as the Canadian Artists Selected by You (CASBY) Awards and the 99.3 The FOX Vancouver Seeds independent music competition. In September 2010, Corus Radio teamed up with Supernova Interactive to launch the first ever integrated music-based social media network that allows listeners, bands and musicians to interact with one another.
Corus’ radio stations are the voices of their communities, and they embody our commitment to enhance the quality of life in every community we serve, with over $14 million given in support each year. Events such as Country 105’s Caring For Kids Radiothon, Derringer’s 13 Days of Christmas, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous, CKNW Orphans' Fund and Winnipeg's Hunger For Hope campaign are some examples of how we harness the reach and impact of our radio group to support hundreds of local, provincial and national charities across Canada.
By informing and entertaining our audiences, delivering best-in-class service to our clients and supporting charitable initiatives in our communities, Corus Radio stays connected to Canadians on-air, online and on site.
