January 25, 2010 (Sarasota, FL)—Digital Frontiers Media (DFM) has created an internet music streaming application that lets users hear The JOY FM 88.1/91.5 on their iPhones. The Florida-based radio station plays adult contemporary Christian music from artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman and Chris Tomlin.
“The trend engineer at The Joy FM is a former student and provided us the opportunity to grow The Joy FM's radio audience and exposure through the use of new media,” explains DFM President Stephen Barker. The JOY has served North, Central and Southwest Florida for over 20 years and to keep reaching listeners, they rely on their trend engineer to find new promotion and listenership opportunities.
"Often, opportunities come from the people you know,” explains DFM President Stephen Barker. “The trend engineer at The Joy FM is a former student and provided us the opportunity to grow The Joy FM's radio audience and exposure through the use of new media." Enthusiastic about leveraging the popularity of the ubiquitous iPhone, JOY contacted DFM to develop a music streaming app.
