We are very excited to announce today that Pandora has reached 200 million registered listeners!

When we launched http://www.pandora.com in 2005, we hoped to create a new way to discover and enjoy music that was completely personalized for each and every listener.  We envisioned a time when artists of all kinds would thrive on radio, connecting with fans who loved exactly their kind of music.

I have to admit, we had no idea what was in store! It has been, and continues to be, an extraordinary experience for all of us.

A hallmark of these years has been the steady stream of amazing stories from our listeners, whether they got engaged while listening to Pandora, mourned the passing of a loved one, or celebrated a special life milestone.

Have a Pandora story to share with us on this special occasion? We’d love to hear it.

      Thank YOU, Tim and all at Pandora, for making work at the pc way more enjoyable! It truly makes all the difference in the world. Of course, I don't always have to be 'working' to enjoy my favorite tunes, but whatever I may be up to, I'll be much more productive at it with Pandora in the background!

      Well, that's great, Timmy! But you lost me as a listener when you sent me an email threatening to start charging me for listening to your "free" streaming TOO MUCH! For some reason, you can't sell enough advertising to support true free streaming. You can't have it both ways, Tim. Fortunately, BoomerRadio and IHeartRadio really are what they say they are. So good luck with your 2 billion listeners. I hope you treat them better! Robert H.

      Hi folks.....I am an occasional listener and enjoy the formats I have created but wonder why your stats people are doing the strings and mirrors crap. In your "unigue artists and songs" catagory you are comparing 400+ stations/genres to one FM radio station. There are over 10,000 broadcast, over the air, radio stations in the US. Take out the News/Talk/Sports formats and you still have 8657 music formats. If you do the math, radio still wins in this catagory. Just be good at what you do, not what radio does, and you may survive in spite of all the outragous copyright costs you are forced to pay..........Thanks.
