�Our initial broadcaster partners in Canada are very excited about the value NextRadio brings to their listeners, as well as, the new radio advertising platform and data NextRadio can provide their advertisers,� said TagStation President Paul Brenner. �This expansion was a natural next step as many handset makers provide the same phones in Canada, making it easier for them to turn on the FM Chip for both countries at the same time.�

NextRadio offers the same functionality for Canadian users and stations as it does in the U.S., including emergency updates reducing battery and data usage.

The NextRadio hybrid radio smartphone app was developed by TagStation LLC with partial funding from NAB Labs.�
