HITS Daily Double


Entercom Communications has changed its name to Audacy and will drop radio.com. A new stock ticker symbol of AUD is expected to debut Friday.

"Audacy captures our dynamic creativity, outstanding content and innovative spirit as we aspire to build the country’s best audio content and entertainment platform," Chairman, President and CEO David Field said.

The company will align its direct-to-consumer platform under Audacy while Cadence13, Pineapple Street Studios, BetQL and Podcorn remain market-facing brands.

"This moment is not just a change of sign, but a sign of change. Our new brand encapsulates who we’ve become in audio and will guide our forward aspirations," said Paul Suchman, Chief Marketing Officer, Audacy. "We are bringing it to life across all touchpoints inside and outside the organization and look forward to delivering on its promise every day."
