history

The logo was in use from November 18, 1996 to February 2007.

Radio Disney was launched on November 18, 1996 - coinciding with Mickey Mouse's birthday - at 5:58 am with the song "Get Ready For This". At the start of Radio Disney, children up to 12 years of age could win prizes. In 2000, the maximum age was increased to 14. In June 2009, Radio Disney changed the maximum age again, this time to 16 years.

Radio Disney has been closely associated with Disney Channel singers and actors such as Hilary Duff and Raven-Symoné Pearman since 2002; also recently with Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez and others. In 2002 the Radio Disney Music Awards Premiered. This is a music awards ceremony that has been held every year since then.

In 2004 Disney paid the former Children’s Broadcasting Corporation $ 12.4 million. Disney had been around for a while before Radio Disney launched Radio Aahs worked together. With Radio Disney now becoming a direct competitor to Radio Aahs' company, which had about 30 stations in its largest expansion, former Aahs owners sued Disney for a breached agreement and sought damages.

2006 Radio Disney celebrated its 10th anniversary. The first hour re-broadcast was broadcast on June 6, 2006 at 4:58 pm. As part of the 10th anniversary, the Totally 10 Birthday Concert was held on July 22, 2006 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.[1] The concert included a simultaneous live broadcast on the Radio Disney website. There was a second concert in Dallas, Texas on November 18, 2006 at the Dallas Convention Center.

In February 2006, the Walt Disney Company announced that it would keep Radio Disney and its stations, even though it had lost much of its "radio ownership" to Citadel Broadcasting.

In April 2007, Radio Disney deleted the word “Ears” from their first slogan “We're all ears!” From their phone number. The phone number was originally pronounced as 1-8-8-8, E-A-R-S, 0-1-8. However, since all DJs read this number as 1-888-327-7018, Radio Disney changed the phone number to 1-877-870-5678 in May 2009.

Since 2008, Radio Disney has added more songs from Disney Channel shows, as well as music from other youth music groups belonging to Walt Disney Records or Hollywood Records.

Radio Disney plays a wide variety of star songs and Disney Channel shows along with other popular songs.

The radio network mainly uses AM stations, but also uses some FM stations. Many of the current callsigns of Disney radio stations are variants of Mickey and Minnie Mouse or simply represent Disney names. At least one name seems to be for Goofy. Another stands for “Walt Disney World” (WDW).

Stations running on HD radio can have a delay of eight seconds. In order to compensate for such a delay compared to the other transmitters, the signal is deliberately delayed on them.

Albums

On the CDs of the Radio Disney Jams series, the music of various artists whose songs can be heard on Radio Disney has been compiled.

International

Internationally there are Radio Disney stations in Australia, Chile, Japan, Poland, Argentina, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Uruguay, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. There are plans to resume radio in the UK, but this time under the "Radio Disney" brand, with the aim of targeting a younger audience than before. It is also planned to air the program in the Philippines, Sweden, Mexico and Brazil in the near future.

Latin America

In Latin America, Radio Disney is available on the country's radio. Similar to Radio Disney in the United States, Radio Disney is in Spanish in Argentina[6], Chile[7], Nicaragua[8], Ecuador[9], Guatemala, Paraguay[10], Uruguay[11], Dominican Republic and Costa Rica[12].

Europe

Radio Disney planned to broadcast on the UK digital radio platform by the end of 2008.[13] On July 6, 2007, Ofcom, the UK media regulator, announced that 4 Digital Group[14], a group of companies led by Channel 4 with Emap, UTV, British Sky Broadcasting, Global Radio, The Carphone Warehouse Group and the University of British Columbia, had permission to launch a new multi-company digital radio of which Radio Disney is one of ten new, national radio stations[15] would involve. On October 10, 2008, Channel 4 withdrew plans to launch "4 Digital", thereby ending the likelihood of Radio Disney being able to join the operation.[16]

A similar station, Capital Disney, began broadcasting on DAB's digital radio network, Sky Digital (digital satellite) and several digital cable TV operators in the UK in 2002. The station was a joint venture between the Capital Radio Group, now called GCap Media, in the UK and Disney. The idea started with using Capital Radio's programming expertise to help Disney launch a radio station in the UK. At the beginning of 2007, both Capital Radio, now GCap Media, and Disney agreed to pursue different goals. The result was that Capital Disney stopped broadcasting and was closed on June 29, 2007.

In 2010, the media council of the State Media Authority Saarland approved the Disney Company for the nationwide distribution of “Radio Disney”. The German-language program will in future be available nationwide via DAB +. [17]
