Apple Music Launches New Stations, Renames Beats 1 To Apple Music 1
Apple is renaming its flagship radio station from Beats 1 to Apple Music 1. Beats 1 radio was the only place Beats branding showed up in the Apple Music offerings.
The station has been running for more than five years now and Apple calls it, “one of the most-listened-to radio stations in the world.”
Apple Music will also launch other new mainstream radio stations today, 28th August 2020. One of them is Apple Music Hits and it will focus on the biggest music hits from the ‘80s, ‘90s, and 2000s; implying that it prefers the good ol’ days.
Hosts like Sayde Donovan, Estelle, Lowkey, Jenn Marino, George Stroumboulopoulos, Sabi, Nicole Sky, and Natalie Sky will anchor shows on the station.
