by Chad Kettner in Categories: Up to the Minute

BRS Media — the operator of the .FM and .AM registries — has announced its intentions to apply for the .radio top level domain through the ICANN gTLD application process in early 2010.

“We’re thrilled and ecstatic to announce our intention to secure, operate and promote the new .Radio top level domain,” said George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc., in a press release [.pdf]. “The future for Internet Radio is vibrant, with the largest growth in mobile listening. From cell phone streaming applications to new In Car and In Flight Wi-Fi access, Internet Radio is now being consumed literally everywhere! DotRadio will allow us to offer the most complete selection of domain extensions to interactive media companies worldwide.”

Currently, online radio is one of the fastest growing segments of the internet with a weekly audience of over 42 million people in the United States alone. In order to ensure a successful ICANN application, BRS Media has chosen to use Minds + Machines for consulting.

BRS Media also operates iDotz.net, a domain registrar; HostRock.net, a discount website hosting service; and Webz.net, an internet directory.
