Otto Radio inks content agreements with journalism outlets

Otto Radio, a personalized audio company, announced several new content agreements. The platform will now air audio programming from CBS News, ABC News, Bloomberg, The Associated Press, and AFP. These new sources will be incorporated into Otto Radio’s service for delivering a stream of audio focused on any given listeners’ interests. The news stories from these sources will cover current events, politics, business, lifestyle, and sports topics.

“Otto is different from traditional single-source news providers because we offer a cross-section of premium news sources for a balanced perspective,” said Reenita Malhotra Hora, Otto Radio’s vice president of programming and audience development. “The addition of ABC, CBS, The Associated Press and AFP, along with Bloomberg, cements this value proposition.”

Otto Radio won the 2016 RAIN Award in the Audio Startups category.
