Revolutionary Data-Driven Analysis Tool Utilizes Daily Sales and
Market Share Data to Optimize Advertising Campaigns for Auto Dealers

iHeartMedia and AUTOFLYTE announced today the launch of AUTOFLYTE
EDGE, a new powerful automotive insights tool that features daily sales
and market share data throughout each region to help dealerships market
smarter and faster. AUTOFLYTE EDGE is available now exclusively through
iHeartMedia.

In an age when real-time analytics and insights are vital to a business'
success, dealerships have been confined to analyzing OEM reports and 60-
to 90-day old registration data to guide their sales and marketing
strategies. Now, for the first time, auto dealerships will be able to
utilize iHeartMedia's AUTOFLYTE
EDGE
tool to receive up-to-date daily automotive sales insights from
their surrounding area, allowing them to completely customize and
quickly update their sales and marketing strategies based on
current market dynamics and trends.

The EDGE platform houses insights for dealers across the U.S. and
pinpoints the exact geographies where dealerships and their competitors
are gaining and losing market share for specific nameplates down to a
zip code, allowing dealers to identify where the most opportunity exists
for their business right now.

"We are committed to technology-driven innovation and having the ability
to offer even more targeting solutions for our advertisers that leverage
the unparalleled local reach of radio," said John Karpinski, Executive
Vice President of Automotive Business Development & Partnerships for
iHeartMedia. "AUTOFLYTE has partnered with the industry authority for
automotive sales statistics to create the most powerful and credible
insights tool available and we have partnered with AUTOFLYTE to bring
this revolutionary technology to the market. With the new AUTOFLYTE EDGE
platform, we will provide our auto partners the ability to break free
from previous automotive marketing confinements and use timely
information to precisely target new buyers."

"With iHeartMedia and AUTOFLYTE's exclusive real-time insights and
data, this new tool is nothing short of a game changer for how we do
business at our dealership," said Steve Hurley, Owner of Stingray
Chevrolet
. "For the first time, we are able to specifically tailor
our marketing plans based on what our customers want today versus months
ago. We've been waiting for something like this and are already seeing
success."

AUTOFLYTE EDGE is part of iHeartMedia's ongoing focus to assist brands
and marketers in reaching consumers across its quarter of a billion
monthly broadcast listeners. In May, the company launched iHeartMedia
Analytics
, the first fully-digital attribution service for broadcast
radio. The company's additional industry-leading marketing optimization
tools include SoundPoint,
its programmatic real-time radio ad buying platform, and SmartAudio,
which enables advertisers to do impression-based audience planning and
dynamic radio ad creative using real-time triggers to deploy different
campaign messages based on what is happening in a specific market at a
specific moment. SmartAudio has allowed brands to use broadcast radio
ads to dynamically serve the most relevant message in each market, at
each moment to ensure increased relevance and impact.
