Radio Ink – September 20th, 2011 – The new Bloomberg Radio+ App for the iPhone and iPod touch is the first radio app where listeners can view real-time charts, get the latest market information and news, and access guest bios — all while listening to business and finance news. “We look forward to bringing Manhattan’s number one radio station to a global audience,” said Oke Okaro, general manager and global head of Bloomberg mobile. “Now people around the world will have 24/7 access to Bloomberg Radio’s market-moving news and analysis on their terms.”
AirKast Chief Executive Officer Larry Leung says “We’ve enjoyed collaborating with Bloomberg to create a superior mobile application that extends their award winning radio programs and business and financial content to their mobile audience”.
The Bloomberg Radio+ app gives listeners the flexibility to hear live breaking financial and business news 24-hours per day as well as download a vast on-demand library of shows and interviews they can listen to at their convenience. For example, rather than having to wait for the regularly scheduled market updates at the 20 minute and 50 minute marks, people can now get that information on demand, download it onto their device, and listen to it offline where and when they want.
The Bloomberg Radio+ App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or online here
