Thanks for the comment, Lyceum. I believe the advertising arm of the company will remain known as Clear Channel, while the media, social and events areas of the company will fall under iHeartMedia. So it's a little confusing. But iHeartMedia is certainly a warmer, less-corporate name that consumers will probably respond to a little better."
I see where you're coming from. You devised a pretty good workaround for one of the problems the company perceived with the name—it limited them to one channel when they expanded to others... But in my opinion, Clear Channel has the feel of a generic, outdated umbrella corporation name. iHeartMedia is not a great name, but I think it's better—and it does play off the positive brand recognition they already have from their popular iHeartRadio app. So I can see why they chose it.
