Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Select one of more than 800 regional radio stations, or create a personalized station based on one of your favorite artists or a specific song. The station will include that musician’s songs and ones from similar artists.

The Support Level for iHeartRadio is about a 2 out of 5.

The app walks you through how to set up a station and has easy-to-navigate lists of local and musical-genre-based stations. We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
