Loudcaster

Loudcaster enables anyone to create an interactive online radio station.

Loudcaster is a Techstars Boston 2010 company.

Everyone is an expert in the sound of something. With Loudcaster anyone can get on the virtual airwaves and broadcast 24x7 with their own online radio station.

Stations run in two modes: 1) An unattended DJ Bot that keeps things rolling 24x7. 2) Live mode, which the human DJ can use at their convenience.

A variety of DJ’s use Loudcaster. You’ll find geographically based local music radio, main-stream radio, and even very specific niche’s like accordion only radio.

Loudcaster generates revenue three ways. 1) We sell services and tools to DJ’s. 2) Advertising. There are 80M online radio listeners now, and that’s projected to be 200M by 2015. 3) Affiliate sales of music, tickets, clothing and the like.

The future of radio is online, not tied up in satellites or towers. Long term, Loudcaster will provide DJ’s and listeners with a whole new level of interactive radio, enabled only by our imagination, determination, execution and our friend, the Internet.

Loudcaster was Founded by Brandon Casci, and inspired by his previous, and still operational, Internet radio startup LoudCity. LoudCity is cash flow positive, well above ramen-noodle profitable, and peaks at 10% of Pandora’s daytime audience.
