Salem Communications Corp. of Camarillo, the nation's eighth-largest radio broadcasting company, announced that its family-oriented Internet portal, OnePlace, has reached an agreement to have its programming carried by RealNetworks.
RealNetworks develops and markets software products that enable personal computer users to send and receive live or recorded audio, video and other multimedia services using the Web.
The agreement makes OnePlace the exclusive provider of Christian radio broadcasting for RealNetworks' RealPlayer G2. There are now more than 72 million registered users of RealPlayer.
"Families need a safe harbor from all of the unexpected dangers of the Internet, and this groundbreaking arrangement gives it to them," said Eric Halvorson, Salem's chief operating officer. "Internet users in search of family-oriented programming will have a choice to hear what they want with the simple click of a mouse."
OnePlace allows listeners to interact with its radio programs online.
