Apple's iTunes Radio, which was introduced on Monday, could make life more difficult for Spotify and other music services because of its exclusive content, connections to the iTunes store and innovative interface, Hannah Karp writes. However, Clear Channel doesn't see iTunes Radio as competition for its iHeartRadio streaming service, CEO Bob Pittman said.
