TeamRock yesterday announced that it would take its radio service off the UK’s national digital radio network, instead focusing on online audio services, which it now intends to grow worldwide through an alliance with 7digital.

Billy Anderson, CEO of the company, which publishes rock magazines Metal Hammer and Classic Rock as well as running a rock radio service, told reporters: “TeamRock.com is a global business. We are proudly based in the UK, but the speed of our growth means we constantly have to adapt to global demands for our product”.

He went on: “Our fanbase want streaming, downloads, specific programming, interviews and insight alongside the ability to listen back to what we produce at their leisure. This new collaboration with 7digital will allow us to provide that service. The future, for TeamRock.com, is to deliver audio that caters for how society wants to consume it. People are choosing when and how they access audio, rather than just traditional live programming”.

Confirming the partnership from his side, 7digital CEO Simon Cole said: “We are proud to be the chosen partner for TeamRock as the company makes this major step change. Helping brands develop a compelling and creative audio presence in the rapidly growing global marketplace is a fundamental plank of our strategy at 7digital and we look forward to playing our part in making TeamRock the destination for rock fans all over the world however they want to consume their music”.
