The idobi Radio audience is passionate about the music and shows they love to listen to. idobi has become a lifestyle with a dedicated audience, who ranks far above Clear Channel, Entercom, Emmis, and other traditional broadcasters (all desperately trying to enter the digital space). Despite major competition, idobi Radio is #1 for TSL in the entire world. This is credited to idobi Radioâ€™s forward-thinking music selection and original programming.
