Warner Music Group Joins the Motorola iRadio(R) Revolution

Warner Music Group to Provide Content From Its Expansive Music Catalog for the

Forthcoming Motorola iRadio(R) Service



Jan 04, 2006, 00:00 ET from Motorola, Inc.

    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today, Motorola, Inc.
 (NYSE:   MOT) announced that Warner Music Group Corp. (NYSE:   WMG) will provide
 music performed by its world-renowned artists to expand the music selection
 available on the award-winning Motorola iRadio(R) service.
     Motorola iRadio launched earlier this week with 435 commercial-free radio
 channels, already one of the widest selections of subscription music
 entertainment available.  The service brings content portability together with
 acquisition and discovery of music.  This creates a powerful new medium for
 artists and labels to directly connect with fans, and for wireless service
 providers to deepen relationships with subscribers.
     Through the iRadio service, including exclusive WMG artist and genre
 channels, iRadio listeners will enjoy and discover music from the company's
 expansive catalog of emerging acts, popular favorites and established legends.
     Motorola iRadio is unlike other subscription radio services in that it
 offers a continuous listening experience that seamlessly moves from home, to
 car stereo, to wireless headphones -- powered from the one device you're never
 without: your mobile phone.
     "Warner Music Group is excited to partner with Motorola for its iRadio
 service," said Michael Nash, Senior Vice President, Digital Strategy and
 Business Development, Warner Music Group.  "This innovative and unique music
 service is another example of how the digital music experience for consumers
 continues to expand and improve.  Portable music devices are essential to
 consumers and we're pleased to see the demand for personalized mobile music
 services like iRadio continue to grow.  Warner Music Group is committed to
 making its vast music library and world-renowned artists available to music
 fans on as many devices and over as many platforms as possible."
     "The addition of the Warner Music Group and its labels is a major
 milestone for the Motorola iRadio service as we look to provide consumers with
 true musical diversity," said Mike Gaumond, vice president and general
 manager, Motorola Digital Media Solutions.  "The Motorola iRadio experience
 enables consumers to hear album tracks and discover new performances wherever
 and whenever they want, and this relationship with Warner Music will enrich
 that experience considerably."
     Motorola is demonstrating the iRadio service at the 2006 International CES
 (Booth #8545, Central Hall) on a variety of music-optimized Motorola devices,
 including the recently announced ROKR E2.
     Consumers can subscribe to the Motorola iRadio Service by simply tapping
 an icon on an iRadio-enabled mobile phone, available through wireless service
 providers later this year.  Individuals interested in previewing the Motorola
 iRadio service now may contact iradio@motorola.com .
