Calif. – Jelli, the developer of
an interactive terrestrial radio service, has raised $2 million in new funding
from angel investors, VentureBeat reported.
Backers include Josh Kopelman,
Zappos COO Alfred Lin, TriplePoint Capital and Peter Sperling.
Calif.-based Jelli offers a listener-programmed format for traditional radio
stations, where users can collaborate to create playlists, and vote in

program in the first quarter of 2010.
