NextRadio has introduced a newsfeed as a new way to present radio station content to listeners. The feed includes items from stations such as trending tweets from a particular user’s favorite programs and other related content such as artist and song facts or concert information. The NextRadio app allows direct radio streaming on select smartphone models with FM-enabled chips.
“We continually look for ways to help our broadcaster partners further integrate their programming into our mobile app,” NextRadio VP of Product Development Ben Husmann said. “Newsfeed is a natural product evolution to create a more robust radio listening experience.”
NextRadio is also working with Global Security Systems to offer emergency message alerts to Newsfeed users. Any NextRadio user can choose to opt in to those Alert FM messages.
