Myxer, a top U.S. social destination for free, ad-supported entertainment, today announced its fast growing internet streaming radio service, Myxer Social Radio, has won the 2012 MTV O Music Award for “Most Addictive Social Music Service.” The award marks the second major recognition for Myxer Social Radio since recently launching in late November when it was named ‘One of the Best Music Apps of 2011′ by RollingStone.com.
“We’re honored to receive this highly coveted award from the MTV O Music Award Group and the huge fan base that supports us,” said Mike Carson, Myxer’s Chief Marketing Officer. “The award represents the power of the social community and its ability to promote a truly social entertainment experience.”
Since its debut, Myxer Social Radio is fast approaching its 1.5 Millionth app install and has evolved the feature base of group listening, real-time chat and video song stories to launch two groundbreaking, weekly interactive music shows — “Inside The Artist Studio” and “Indie Spotlight.” These are just some of the innovations at Myxer that led it to beat Soundrop For Spotify in O Music Award’s social music service category.
“Inside The Artist Studio” showcases a new artist each week with a special selection of songs from the artist or band profiled. Listeners log in each week to hear selections from their favorite artists interspersed with video segments from host Brenna Ehrlich’s interview with a new artist or band each week. They are also able to chat live with the artist during the show.
