Although video may have killed the radio star, tuning into the radio still helps ease long commutes. Many radio stations in Denver also offer online streaming, so fans can tune in while at work. All the radio stations listed here are free, but subscription radio such as SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio is also available in the Denver market.
Even in the age of apps such as Pandora and Spotify, radio still holds a place on the dial. According to a study by the National Association of Broadcasters, radio airplay is the number one driver of song sales, and radio airplay also makes the life cycle of a song last longer.
"This study highlights clearly the enormous value that radio airplay provides in promoting music and generating music sales," said Dennis Wharton, executive vice President of communications for NAB. "Local radio remains the premiere platform for exposing new music and generating sales for record labels."
Radio stations are also a fantastic resource to receive the most current news, weather, and politics as the staff is dedicated to providing hyper-local and relevant information to its nearby audience. Additionally, many stations promote cool contests and give-a-ways, so you might win a fun prize that's unique to your neighborhood!
While nearly every car comes with a radio tuner option, and some people still have an old-fashioned stand-alone radio device in their home, for those that have neither option, the ability to listen to radio is still possible via your mobile device.
Many radio stations are streaming their content over the Internet, which allows listeners to download a mobile application and tune in. Apps like iHeartRadio and TuneIn, are available for iOs and Android, as well as have integrations with Alexa and Google Home.
