Bauer Media Audio completes acquisition of SharpStream

Hamburg/London, 1 May, 2024 – Today, Bauer Media Audio – Europe’s leading digital commercial radio broadcaster and audio operator – announced that it has completed its acquisition of SharpStream – a leading provider of audio streaming software.

SharpStream is counted on by some of the world’s biggest brands to stream their audio content live to internet audiences, including high profile sports broadcasters like the ATP and Le Mans Racing Series, all the way through to niche, ethnic and community audio broadcasters.

SharpStream has been a long-term partner of Bauer Media Audio across Europe and as part of Bauer Media Audio, SharpStream will be able to leverage the capacities of the wider business to continue growing and developing.

SharpStream provides its services to seven of Bauer Media Audio’s local markets (Slovakia, Norway, UK, Sweden, Portugal, Denmark and Ireland), and the acquisition signifies an important step in Bauer Media Audio’s transformation as the business moves forward into its next stage of digital development.

Commenting, Vivian Mohr, President of Audio, said:

“I’m incredibly excited to be able to officially welcome SharpStream to Bauer Media Audio. In our time spent working together, we’ve been incredibly impressed by the team’s capabilities and outcomes, and look forward to working together further to enable new experiences for our customers and listeners alike”.
