HistoryEdit

Previously, the company was an internet radio service originally created by CBS Radio.

On February 4, 2010, all CBS radio stations banned all non-U.S. listeners from streaming online content, and international listeners were redirected to a paid service. In May that same year, Play.it announced their new player with a new full-browser layout.

The Play.it website was relaunched on January 7, 2015 as an on-demand podcasting service. It offers streaming content from CBS's digital libraries, including 60 Minutes, CBS Sports Radio, and CBS News.[1] On November 17, 2017, Play.it became an Entercom property along with the rest of the assets of CBS Radio as part of the merger between CBS Radio and Entercom.[2]

Following Entercom's acquisition, Play.it and its podcast catalog merged into Radio.com's streaming service.
