Radio Disney is a radio network based in Burbank, California, from where it has been based since November 2008. Prior to that, the network was based in Dallas, Texas. Radio Disney broadcasts music and other content targeted at children and young teenagers; its format can be described as a youth-friendly contemporary hit radio. It is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.

Radio Disney is formatted like a traditional radio station, featuring prize giveaways (in which viewers can enter via phone, online and since 2008, also by text message) and occasional in-studio interviews, called "Takeovers" (which usually occur during the weekday late afternoon timeslot).

History

The first Radio Disney logo used from 1996 to 2002.

1997-2001: The Beginning

Radio Disney was launched on November 18, 1996 (coinciding with Mickey Mouse's birthday, the release of Steamboat Willie) at 5:58 A.M. EST with the song "Get Ready For This." Their slogan was "We're all ears" that was used heavily on jingles. Radio Disney started with songs that were played on Top-40 stations as well as popular oldies and songs from various cartoon shows. Artists included Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, N'SYNC, Backstreet Boys, and Hanson, to name a few.

In 2000, artists such as Aaron Carter, and Dream Street became popular. Their new short-lived slogan was changed to "music and prizes that rock!" Later in 2000, Radio Disney increased the age limit for winning prizes and sweepstakes from 12 to 14. The Radio Disney World Tour also debuted in 2000.

2001-2007: Disney Channel Stars

The Radio Disney logo used from November 18, 1996 to February 2007.

Near the end of 2001, Radio Disney has been closely tied with singers/actors from original Disney Channel shows starting with Hilary Duff and Raven-Symoné, and more recently with Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Mitchel Musso, and others. It also marked the start of their current slogan, "your music, your way".

In 2002, the first Radio Disney Music Awards premiered. It is a music awards ceremony that has been held every year since.

In 2004, Disney paid the former Children's Broadcasting Corporation (which operated Aahs) $12.4 million. Disney had collaborated with Radio Aahs for a time prior to the launch of Radio Disney as a direct competitor to Minneapolis-based company which reached about 30 stations at its height and former Aahs owners sued for damages because of a breached agreement.

2006 marked the 10th year that the station first went on the air, the rebroadcast of its first hour of broadcasting was aired on June 6, 2006 at around 4:58pm EDT on select markets such as WQEW. Also, as part of the 10-year anniversary, the concert "Totally 10 Birthday Concert" was held on July 22, 2006 at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California.[1] It also included a simultaneous live broadcast on the Radio Disney website. A second one was held in Dallas, Texas on November 18, 2006 at the Dallas Convention Center.[2]

In February 2006, the Walt Disney Company announced that it will be keeping Radio Disney and its owned-and-operated stations while divesting much of its radio holdings to Citadel Broadcasting. Radio Disney will be reporting to the Cable Networks Group. This unit takes care of Disney's cable holdings, except for ESPN.

2007-Present: Various changes

In April 2007, Radio Disney completely dropped the word "Ears" (from their first slogan, "We're all ears!") from their (old) phone number, ear mail, and from Playhouse Disney daily programming. The call-in number was originally spoken aloud as 1-8-8-8, E-A-R-S, 0-1-8; then, all DJs read it as 1-888-327-7018.

Since 2008, Radio Disney has been adding more songs from Disney Channel original shows as well as music produced from other teen music groups, several of which are associated with Walt Disney Records or Hollywood Records. Playhouse Disney programming has been cut back an hour. (originally a 2 hour block).

In November of 2008, Radio Disney moved their headquarters from Dallas, Texas to Burbank, California.

In late May 2009, Radio Disney completely changed their phone number. Their current phone number is 1-877-870-5678.

In June 2009, Radio Disney again increased the maximum age for winning prizes, this time to 16 years of age.

In January 2010, Radio Disney requested permission from the FCC to "silence" five owned-and-operated stations (plus a sixth station operating under an LMA to another company) while the stations were being sold[3]. Sale agreements have been announced for two of the stations (as of January 28, 2010).

B. Good and Susan Huber since its inception. It is now currently hosted by Betsy. Playhouse Disney was once a two hour block, but has recently been cut back an hour, along with Circle Time Story, (Originally "Mickey And Minnie's Storytime Theatre" between 1998-2001) which featured read-along stories from Disney movies and films. Like Playhouse Disney on Disney Channel, it is targeted towards preschoolers. Songs from Playhouse Disney shows, Disney movies, and songs from other shows such as Sesame Street get played, along with contests with preschool related questions, and questions about Disney characters. Classic Disney songs are also played during Playhouse Disney.

Radio Disney World Tours

In 2000 and 2001, Radio Disney launched 2 separate "world tours" that traveled to large markets across the United States. In 2000, the tour featured up and coming talent (No Authority, Myra) and then Radio Disney DJs, Mark and Zippy. The tour traveled to the following cities: Atlanta, New York, Boston, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. It played in theatrical venues and had audiences of up to 2,000 people per show (there were 4 shows each weekend in each market).

Availability

Online Stream

Radio Disney is streamed at RadioDisney.com and is also available under the Pop/Top 40 section of the iTunes radio tuner.

Radio Disney is also available as a special feature on the Blu-Ray release of Hannah Montana: The Movie via Disney BD-Live.

From 1997 up until 1999, the network was streamed digitally in RealAudio format from Disney's website. The service was pulled in 1999, only to resurface a short time later as a pre-installed streaming channel on QuickTime 4's streaming media list. The service disappeared again around 2000 when Quicktime 5 was released. In March of 2006, The stream resurfaced again in a Windows Media Player format as Radio Disney 2.0. It was then later revamped in a Flash format complete with lyrics and previously played songs.

Subscription Radio and TV

Radio Disney is available on XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio in digital audio quality in both the United States and Canada, both on channel 115. It was carried previously on Music Choice on most digital cable-TV systems. However, on September 18, 2007, Music Choice replaced Radio Disney with their own channel, Kidz Only!, similar to Radio Disney, but with a less interrupted music format. [5][6] Radio Disney is also available via satellite on XM (channel 867) and is also currently carried on the Sirius package on Dish Network (channel 6115). Radio Disney could be heard previously on DirecTV channel 867, but as of February 9, 2010, DirecTV changed their music programming from XM Radio to Sonic Tap. A few Digital Cable providers with radio services offer Radio Disney as a live radio broadcast selection to the listings.

Stations

Despite being music oriented, the network uses primarily AM stations, with a few FM stations. The listing below is accurate as of January 2010. Despite their current standing, many of these stations have diverse histories. Many of the current call signs of Radio Disney stations are variations on the Disney name and that of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. At least one appears to be named for Goofy. Another is named for Walt Disney World (WDW).

Markets airing on HD Radio may have an 8 second delay in its AM broadcast, which makes that station fall behind other Radio Disney stations on AM. A winner of a contest may be chosen before or while the contest details are announced. (In order to keep the analog/digital signals in sync, it is standard practice for Hybrid Digital Radio to delay all content by a few seconds.)

Albums

The Radio Disney Jams series CDs are various artists compilations of music featured on Radio Disney.

International

Internationally, There are Radio Disney stations in Australia, Chile, Japan, Poland, Argentina, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Panama, and the Dominican Republic. There are plans to resume broadcasting of a Disney branded radio station in the UK, but this time under the 'Radio Disney' brand, aimed at a younger audience than its predecessor in the UK. It plans to broadcast in the Philippines, Sweden, Mexico and Brazil in the near future.

Latin America

Radio Disney is available in Latin America via terrestrial broadcast. Similar to Radio Disney in the US, it broadcasts in Spanish to Argentina[1], Chile[2] Nicaragua[3], Ecuador[4], Guatemala, Paraguay[5], Uruguay[6], Dominican Republic, Panama, and Costa Rica[7]

Europe

Radio Disney planned to begin broadcasting on the digital radio platform in the United Kingdom by the end of 2008.[8] On July 6, 2007, Ofcom, the communications regulator of the United Kingdom, announced that the 4 Digital Group, a consortium headed by Channel 4 and featuring Emap, UTV, British Sky Broadcasting, Global Radio, Carphone Warehouse and UBC, had been awarded a license to run a new digital radio multiplex which would include Radio Disney as one of ten new national radio stations. On October 10, 2008, Channel 4 withdrew plans to launch 4 Digital, ending the probability of Radio Disney launching on the service.[9]

A similar station, Capital Disney began broadcasting in 2002 on the DAB digital radio network, on Sky Digital (Digital Satellite) and various digital cable TV operators in the UK. The station was a joint venture between the UK's Capital Radio Group and Disney. The idea being to use Capital Radio's programming experience to assist Disney in launching a radio station in the UK. In early 2007, both Capital Radio (by now called GCap Media) and Disney agreed to pursue different goals, and as a result, Capital Disney ceased broadcasting and closed down on June 29, 2007.
