Warner Music Group to provide content from its expansive music catalog for the forthcoming Motorola iRadio® service

LAS VEGAS - 4 January 2006 - Today, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced that Warner Music Group Corp. (NYSE: WMG), will provide music performed by its world-renowned artists to expand the music selection available on the award-winning Motorola iRadio®service.

Motorola iRadio launched earlier this week with 435 commercial-free radio channels, already one of the widest selections of subscription music entertainment available. The service brings content portability together with acquisition and discovery of music. This creates a powerful new medium for artists and labels to directly connect with fans, and for wireless service providers to deepen relationships with subscribers.

Through the iRadio service, including exclusive WMG artist and genre channels, iRadio listeners will enjoy and discover music from the company's expansive catalog of emerging acts, popular favorites and established legends.

Motorola iRadio is unlike other subscription radio services in that it offers a continuous listening experience that seamlessly moves from home, to car stereo, to wireless headphones -- powered from the one device you're never without: your mobile phone.

"Warner Music Group is excited to partner with Motorola for its iRadio service," said Michael Nash, Senior Vice President, Digital Strategy and Business Development, Warner Music Group. "This innovative and unique music service is another example of how the digital music experience for consumers continues to expand and improve. Portable music devices are essential to consumers and we're pleased to see the demand for personalized mobile music services like iRadio continue to grow. Warner Music Group is committed to making its vast music library and world-renowned artists available to music fans on as many devices and over as many platforms as possible."

"The addition of the Warner Music Group and its labels is a major milestone for the Motorola iRadio service as we look to provide consumers with true musical diversity," said Mike Gaumond, vice president and general manager, Motorola iRadio. "The Motorola iRadio experience enables consumers to hear album tracks and discover new performances wherever and whenever they want, and this relationship with Warner Music will enrich that experience considerably."

Motorola is demonstrating the iRadio service at the 2006 International CES (Booth #8545, Central Hall) on a variety of music-optimized Motorola devices, including the recently announced ROKR E2.

Consumers can subscribe to the Motorola iRadio Service by simply tapping an icon on an iRadio-enabled mobile phone, available through wireless service providers later this year. Individuals interested in previewing the Motorola iRadio service now may contact iradio@motorola.com.
