Â 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 ChannelÂs CHR Top 40 radio stations and their websites.

The result is a first for the wireless industry Â a direct tie-in between radio and wireless mobile ringtones.
ÂEvery day, millions of people discover new music and enjoy their old favorites by listening to Clear Channel Radio stations,Â stated Linda Byrd, Senior Vice President, Clear Channel Radio. ÂConnecting our radio listeners with their favorite ringtones and screen savers is the logical next step for Clear Channel.
