Following the successful launch of Absolut Radio AI in July and its subsequent transition to DAB+ in September, Radio.Cloud helped launch the second and third completely AI driven radio stations in Europe.
Antenne Voralberg’s Dance Radio KI Inside is Austria’s first completely AI controlled radio station and features an artificial intelligence voice named “Betty”. The station has been on-air since Betty’s New Year’s Eve special ushered in the new audio technology and continues to evolve daily.
Radio.Cloud announced a new agreement with ARC Software, Inc., establishing ARC as its primary affiliate research and maintenance platform.

After a busy and productive 2023, Radio.Cloud wraps up its in-person convention schedule later this month in Vancouver.
Building on an existing relationship, syndicator Throwback Brands and cloud-native automation platform Radio.Cloud announced a long term agreement.
Blue Tag Media has selected Radio.Cloud to localize and distribute its four hour nationally syndicated program The Jeff Foxx Show.
“Jeff Foxx is a seasoned radio professional and his daily work ethic is one to be admired by his peers in broadcasting,” Blue Tag Media CEO Mike Love commented. “Jeff brings his lovable presentation and entertaining knowledge of R&B music to our affiliates around the country each weekday. And now with Radio.Cloud, each affiliate will receive a localized version of his national show.”
Radio.Cloud continues its year of firsts, exhibiting for the first time at its own booth at the upcoming International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam.
“We’ve added so many new features to our platform this year alone,” said CEO and Founder Christian Brenner. “IBC is the perfect chance to show broadcasters from all over the world how Radio.Cloud is using and taking advantage of AI.”
The event runs Friday September 15 through Monday September at the RAI in Amsterdam, and the Radio.Cloud booth is 8.D77 located in Hall 8.
Four years ago, Radio.Cloud went on-air with its first customer the BLR in Munich, Germany. The BLR is the largest audio syndicator in the German speaking market, distributing different news reports to more than 100 stations daily. Originally, CEO and Founder Christian Brenner developed a platform called NewsStar because the BLR couldn’t distribute all versions of the news reports in a flexible and reliable way using traditional satellite delivery.
“15 years ago, the concept behind NewsStar was similar to the goal that we have with Radio.Cloud today: provide ultra-localized syndicated content to affiliates,” Brenner recalled. “NewsStar focuses only on national, regional and local news and weather reports. At that time we had four on-prem racks full of servers to operate that system.”
“What Christian’s team developed for us around 2005 was groundbreaking for the radio market,” said BLR managing director Sebastian Steinmayr. “It actually put us into a totally different position on the market.”
