MARINA DEL REY, Calif., April 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- KIIS FM Listeners now have a new way to engage with their favorite radio personalities and celebrity guests, and a chance for it all to be integrated onto the on-air shows. Starting today, fans of the station's top rated morning show, On-Air with Ryan Seacrest , are encouraged to visit the KIIS FM "Ask Ryan" microsite to leave questions for the morning show personalities via the Yappa commenting tool, which is found in the Comments section. Ryan Seacrest will answer questions via yaps, audio and video comments, and his favorite yaps will be played on the morning show which airs weekdays on KIIS-FM. Co-hosts Sisanie and Tanya Rad will also engage with listeners via yaps on their personal blogs.
"Our partnership with Yappa gives us a new and innovative platform for engaging with our listeners (friends). We have always been community-focused and Yappa offers a natural extension to these efforts," says Greg Ashlock, President iHeartMedia Markets Group.
Earlier this month, Yappa was integrated into iHeartMedia's KFI Radio in Los Angeles to connect Angelenos during the coronavirus pandemic safely. The new partnerships with iHeartMedia Los Angeles mark the first-ever integrations of the Yappa tool into a radio format. "We've always known that the expressive nature of yaps, coupled with the quick clip format would lend itself perfectly for radio soundbites," said Jennifer Dyer, CEO of Yappa World Inc. "We are thrilled that Yappa is finding a home with Ryan Seacrest and his team of radio greats who are some of the most engaging personalities in the world."
