iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes

On June 6, 2013, iHeartMedia launched iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes, a company-wide community service initiative to address the issue of unemployment among U.S. military veterans and to encourage businesses to hire skilled veterans. iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes – with the tagline "Hire Smart – Hire Vets" – is a long-term effort to help guide veterans back into civilian life by highlighting their valuable training and experience.

Since the program's launch, iHeartMedia has invested well over $100 million in radio, digital and out-of-home resources to highlight the skills brought back by returning servicemen and women and their value to employers in the workplace – making iHeartMedia's iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes the largest public service program in the company’s history.
