NEW YORK (Reuters) - The No. 2 U.S. radio broadcaster CBS Radio said on Friday it will combine its more than 150 online radio stations with AOL's more than 200 online stations.

CBS Radio, a division of CBS Corp, will take over advertising sales, the companies said in a joint statement.

CBS Radio plans to launch this spring a new online radio player that incorporates the two companies' services and will also support Apple Inc's Mac computers.

AOL is a division of Time Warner Inc.
