Clear Channel, ClearSky Mobile Media and Cellus USA partner to offer ringtones and wallpapers through Clear Channel's stations.

– ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a wireless entertainment agent for the latest generation mobile handsets announced today a partnership with media giant Clear Channel Communications to distribute ringtones, wallpapers, answering services, realtones and mobile games using Clear Channel’s CHR Top 40 radio stations and their websites. The Contemporary Hit Radio format sites have been customized with ringtone and wallpaper selections specific to the play lists and to the stations’ audiences. The result is a first for the wireless industry – a direct tie-in between radio and wireless mobile ringtones.

“Every day, millions of people discover new music and enjoy their old favorites by listening to Clear Channel Radio stations,” stated Linda Byrd, Senior Vice President, Clear Channel Radio. “Connecting our radio listeners with their favorite ringtones and screen savers is the logical next step for Clear Channel. Through the radio stations and their web sites, we have an unprecedented way to educate consumers and drive purchases.” “Clear Channel wants to become the formidable leader in offering ringtones from all genres and formats,” added Byrd.

“This partnership with Clear Channel is indicative of where the wireless market is headed,” said Dean Fresonke, CEO of ClearSky. “Tie-ins and promotions of wireless content are often better handled by companies outside of the traditional wireless industry. Clear Channel has the vision to see that ringtones and screensavers are brand extensions that can be promoted with their tremendous marketing reach. We look forward to continuing our joint innovations.” The actual content and the underlying technology powering this venture is being provided by Cellus USA. Bruce Ellis, CEO of Cellus USA says “We’re honored to have been selected by ClearSky and Clear Channel to supply their premium mobile content. It is further validation that the strategy we’ve developed and our execution of that strategy is in line with the needs of a wildly diverse mobile content marketplace.”
