i♥, Likely RIP
iHeartRadio is in serious trouble.
Unlike some recent speculations by visitors to this site on Cumulus's looming demise, this looks like the real thing.
It seems unlikely this would mean the disappearance of the iHeart streams and other services. A Chapter 11 bankruptcy, if it happens, means restructuring, selling off assets, and the like -- those assets don't just disappear.
I will leave to Confessors who do more streaming than I do (all of them) to comment on whether it matters to them if the iHeartRadio app for Ticket monitoring lives or dies.
