Tiktok is ramping up its musical push, launching a pop-up music station on the Australian RadioNetwork’s (ARN) Iheart Radio.
Tiktok trending will showcase the music and artists taking off on the platform, as well as the tracks experiencing a revival due to viral trends or rediscovery from different generations. The station will feature creators as hosts, including musicians.
“The big question I get asked all the time is ‘How do you know what songs are trending on TikTok?’ And people might know of them, but they haven’t heard them in their entirety, or people have been looking at TikTok, but haven’t heard this next song that’s climbing the charts because the For You feed us so personalised so that they get a lot of, say, cat content. But they still want to know ‘What’s this next song that’s blowing o and how do I get to listen to it?’” he told TMN ahead of the station’s launch today.
iHeart’s local content director, Brett ‘Nozz’ Nossiter, said no radio consultant on the planet would make a radio station out of the “beautiful, chaotic, crazy cacophony of music” that emerges from TikTok – but that’s what made the prospect so exciting.
“The transition will be a song that you know, then there’ll be an artist you’ve never heard of before, but when you hear it, you’ll think ‘I actually need to dig into and find out more about that – it could be the Channel 9 News theme for all I know

“It is becoming evident that the Respondent (Njehia) has unexplained assets disproportionate to his known legitimate source of income and specifically his salary as a public officer,” stated EACC in court documents.
