It's not entirely clear to me how much control iHeartMedia has with this deal over Bell Media owned stations. Is it just licensing the branding/image? Or do they have any stake in the editorial contents of stations? Will the Canadian iHeartRadio app ever provide access to U.S. Stations? How about custom artists stations? Time will tell I guess.

AFAIK, only branding and inventory were part of the agreement. iHeart has no control over the content of stations in the Bell Media division.

Bell App. doesn`t work anymore. I can`t download the iheart app. because it`s not compatible with both of my devices. They`re both Samsung. How many listeners have they lost by changing apps?

My favorite station, CFRB1010 talk radio has changed to iHeart...
Well, Bell owned it previously so not sure anything will change much...
Right around the same time, early October, Mike Bullard suddenly disappeared from his own show that had been on the station for about six years on weekdays from noon to 1 p.m.
For a week or two the station's website was saying it was still Bullard's show but with Jim Richards filling in, and Bullard himself tweeted "off on personal stuff". But now there's no mention of him on the website, it's now Jim Richards show from noon to 4 p.m., and last week the program director apparently responded to a listener's e-mail by saying Bullard "is no longer with Bell Media Radio" and "is pursuing new opportunities outside the company."
If all this had nothing to do with the iHeartRadio thing, then the timing of it was certainly a strange coincidence.
