Clear Channel to test new web streaming

Two months after most radio stations across the country stopped streaming their signals on the web because of a dispute over fees for traditional radio commercials that are simulcast on the web, Clear Channel Interactive announced that they have come up with a solution.

Clear Channel’s chief executive Kevin Mayer said at the Radio & Records Convention in L.A that the chain is set to begin testing Internet-only advertisements on some of its websites.
