Hype Machine has exited a struggling Spin Media group to join the Townsquare Media Group. Townsquare owns 312 radio stations, produces events and publishes sites including TasteofCountry, Loudwire, and PopCrush. Townsquare digital music and entertainment properties reach 60M+ according to ComScore.
Hype Machine is a leading global aggregator of music blogs and producer of the Hype Hotel at SXSW. This year’s event is a 5-day event featuring more than 60 artists, curated by Hype Machine and its top music blog partners.
“We are excited to team up with Townsquare Media to better connect listeners, marketers and music, and look forward to working with a partner focused on making a significant impact in this space,” said Anthony Volodkin, Founder of Hype Machine.
