New Ways to Experience Radio Using Visuals, Text, and Real-Time
New York — The latest in a series of recent innovations in
mobile, Bloomberg today announced its new Bloomberg Radio+ App
for iPhone and iPod touch. Available on the App Store, this 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 the most preeminent minds in
business and finance.
“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.”
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.
Top Bloomberg news professionals including Tom Keene, Ken
Prewitt, Kathleen Hays, Pimm Fox, and Jan Stoddard keep
listeners connected to the news that moves markets through in-
depth interviews with world leaders and insightful analysis.
Past guests have included: Former President Bill Clinton; George
Soros, the billionaire best known for breaking the Bank of
England; George Papandreou, Prime Minister of Greece; and
Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International
Monetary Fund, just to name a few.
The Bloomberg Radio+ App is available for free from the App
Store on iPhone and iPod touch or online here.
