George is a radio announcer, and when he walks under a bridge… you can’t hear him talk.

We wanted to offer an update to stations using the Nobex-generated StreamLicensing/Oi2 Media apps. As of November 15, 2017, the agreement that covered the use of the Nobex app for StreamLicensing/Oi2 Media is no longer in effect.
We want to make sure our decision causes as little disruption to your station as possible, so if your station uses the StreamLicensing application you’ll have a few options:
- You can register for the Streamlicensing Legacy User plan with Nobex Partners ($25/month) and we will continue to maintain and support your version of the app.
- You can build a brand new mobile app with the Nobex Partners program.
Either way, you can continue to have an app for your station!
It is important to note that Nobex Partners doesn’t provide any assistance with content licensing. You will be responsible for ensuring that your station is properly licensed and managing payment of performance royalties.
Please feel free to contact our support team via the onsite message system. We’re happy to discuss with you.
We’ve partnered with Waze, the crowdsourced navigation app, to offer traffic reporting in real time for your station using their amazing Waze for Broadcasters suite of tools.
- Waze Traffic View: A dynamic, traffic dashboard that helps Nobex Partners access real-time Wazer-generated reports on changing road conditions for on-air updates. Waze algorithms automatically detect unusual traffic conditions and provide alternative routes and drive times for planning and reporting purposes.
- LiveMap: A Waze-branded map for Nobex Partners’ websites. This means all listeners (not just Wazers) can see real-time traffic conditions.
- Training: the Waze team will help you get the most out of this feature
Partnering with Waze means bringing even more to your Nobex Partners Dashboard. We’re so excited to join with Waze for Broadcasters because getting the best and most accurate traffic reports makes your station first choice for your listeners.
In radio, they say, nothing happens until the announcer says it happens.

Our friends at Waze want to help in areas effected by Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey has devastated areas across Texas, Louisiana, and much of the American south. Together, we’re working to get the people of Texas and Louisiana back to their routines, one free #HarveyCarpool at a time.
The Waze and Waze Carpool apps work in tandem to help riders and drivers on similar routes find each other, ride together, and navigate around road closures and hazards with real-time updates from the Waze Community.
What can you do? – Make announcements on-air and through your station’s social media to notify your listeners about Waze Carpool.
Santa Cruz, August 28, 2017 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nobex Partners is proud to announce our partnership with The Sound Podcast. They launched their custom app with Nobex Partners earlier this week.
The new podcast-focussed apps from Nobex Partners offer podcasters a chance to create custom mobile apps that are packed with all the great features that radio stations love about Nobex Partners, including integrated social feeds, custom requests forms, and push messages. Push Messages are really powerful for podcasters; being able to send a push that is in realtime, or scheduled, or episode specific draws listeners back into the app.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Nobex to bring our podcast, and all of our content to a mobile audience with our new The Sound Podcast App.”
— Ira Haberman | Host/Executive Producer, The Sound Podcast
“The Sound Podcast is a great example of what you can do with our podcast-focussed custom apps. It’s been great working with Ira to get this launched and ready for him to grow his listenership even more.”
— Cait Watson | VP Marketing, Nobex Technologies
