Studio Tamani in Mali Partners with AudioNow

May 27, 2014, Washington, D.C. – Hirondelle USA, a U.S. non-profit organization supporting independent media in post-conflict areas and AudioNow, the world’s largest call-to-listen provider, announced today that news and debate programming from the Swiss NGO Fondation Hirondelle’s radio program in Mali, Studio Tamani, can now be heard on any mobile phone in the U.S., France, and UK through AudioNow’s call-to-listen service.

The programs can be accessed through the following numbers:

United States: (712) 432-7105

France: 01.80.14.43.56

UK: 033.00.10.22.11

Listeners can access Studio Tamani content by simply dialing the local access phone number on any landline or mobile device.  The service does not require a smartphone or apps and uses voice minutes rather than data plans.

“Working with AudioNow enables us to reach Mali’s diaspora in central hubs like the U.S., France and England, and extends the dialogue between Mali and its diaspora through easy to use technology,” says Anne Bennett, Executive Director of Hirondelle USA.  “This initiative fits with Tamani’s mission, which is to provide a platform for dialogue and reconciliation for the people of the country.”

In an effort to provide critical and credible news and information in Mali by locally trained journalists, Studio Tamani was established in 2013 as part of a partnership between Fondation Hirondelle and URTEL (Malian Union of Free Radio and Television Stations).  Tamani’s live discussion program debating topics of the day – “The Grand Dialogue” – is one of its most popular shows and is featured “on-demand” through AudioNow.   Studio Tamani’s daily programs are produced at its editorial hub at the Maison de la Presse in Bamako, and news bulletins are broadcast in French, Bambara, Peulh,Tamasheq, and Sonrhaï  on a network of 24 partner radios throughout the country.

“For Malian diaspora living outside of Mali, our platform provides a high-quality connection to on-the-ground news, updates and features,” says Alexandra Moe, Director of Strategic Partnerships at AudioNow.  “This project will help expand the reach of Studio Tamani well beyond Mali, and we’re thrilled about our partnership with Fondation Hirondelle.”

Studio Tamani is the first of the Fondation Hirondelle ‘s projects in Africa to join the AudioNow platform.  Radio Ndeke Luke (Central African Republic); Radio Okapi (in partnership with the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations in DRC); Cotton Trees News (Sierra Leone) will be the next projects available on call-to listen, along with a suite of individual mobile apps.  Combined, the Fondation Hirondelle radio stations reach 30 million people, and are specifically dedicated to delivering impartial information in times of crisis, in some of the world’s most hazardous areas.

Leading Broadcasters and Breaking News from Ukraine Now Available by Mobile Phone in U.S. and England

Espreso.tv, UkrStream.tv, and Radio Svoboda offer real-time reporting from Kyiv

February 28, 2014 – Following weeks of upheaval in Ukraine, where violence and the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych dominated international headlines and where independent Ukrainian media sources remain limited, three leading broadcasters announced today a partnership with AudioNow – the world’s leading call-to-listen provider – to expand the reach of their programs to Ukrainian diaspora.

Espreso.tv and UkrStream.tv, based in Kyiv, and Radio Svoboda, the Ukrainian-language broadcast of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, are now offering 24/7 reporting and news updates to mobile phones across the U.S. and U.K.

Radio Svoboda can now be heard from any mobile phone in the U.S. by calling 415.638.5770, and in the UK by calling 033.00.10.26.60.  There is no cost for the call beyond mobile minutes.  As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices, call-to-listen technology is emerging as one of the most affordable ways for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters and organizations.

Established in 1954, Radio Svoboda/RFE is Ukraine’s most popular and trusted international broadcaster.   With a staff of 26 in Kyiv, dozens of stringers on the ground, and over 12 hours of daily programming, Editor in Chief Nedad Pejic remarked on the importance of providing news and information during the unrest.

“Our data says that United States is the second country, after Ukraine, to visit the site of RFE/RL in Ukrainian.  We registered 228,000 visits from United States in three days — from February 18th – February 21st. The diaspora audience needs to know that is happening and this is why this AudioNow platform is important to us,” said Pejic.

UkrStream.tv was created as an independent news source as the unrest began, by professional journalists in Ukraine who see a need for more unbiased reporting.  In the five weeks since its launch, the channel is reporting 20 million views from around the world.

“Our cameras operate 24 hours per day, and capture everything that happens on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv.   And you can listen to what happens on the stage on Maidan – the center of the Ukrainian civil protest,” said Timur Vasiljev, Co-founder of UkrStream.tv.  “It is very important to us for reach the diaspora and give the possibility to be in contact with the course of protests in every possible way.”

UkrStream.tv can be now heard by mobile phone in the U.S. on 712.432.7880, and in the UK on  033.00.10.27.33.

Espreso.tv, founded in 2013, is a privately owned TV channel from Ukraine. The station’s goal is to act as a megaphone for the most current news in Ukraine, both inside the country and for Ukrainians living abroad.

Espreso.tv aims to unite those who care about democratization of Ukraine.  Espreso.tv is dedicated to accurate and objective reporting of political, social, and cultural life, to discussions of nationally important issues and events, conducted by well known personalities,” says staffer Anna Patentna from Kyiv.

Espreso.tv can be heard by mobile phone in the U.S. on 712.432.9775, and in the UK on 033.00.10.41.05

“As part of our mission to provide the hard-to-reach with universal access to important information, AudioNow is committed to connecting broadcasters in times of conflict to diaspora audiences eager for real-time news,” says George Cernat, Chief Marketing Officer of AudioNow. “We look to serve wherever there is a global crisis and bridge the digital divide.”

The complete listing of Ukrainian-language programming available immediately in the U.S. through AudioNow is as follows:

New York, NY (March 10, 2014) – AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, and the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) today announced that audio content from the United Nations including news and features as well as live coverage, is now accessible by phone in Brazil, South Africa, Switzerland, and Ukraine. Based on an agreement signed by both parties, the service began in the U.S. in 2013 and will continue to open in additional countries in the year ahead.

Listeners can access UN Audio content – including radio programmes, news bulletins and features stories, interviews, daily press briefings and live coverage of many UN General Assembly and Security Council meetings – by simply dialing in a local access phone number on any landline or mobile device. This service does not require a smartphone or apps and it uses voices minutes rather than data plans, making it the least expensive way to access such content. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices, and as feature phones remain in high use in many parts of the world, this kind of call-to-listen platform is emerging as one of the most affordable ways for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters and organizations.

“We are excited to join forces with AudioNow to make it easier for people to access UN programming,” says Mr. Stéphane Dujarric, Director of the News and Media Division at the United Nations. “This collaboration is an example of an innovative and cost effective way to take UN stories and issues directly to audiences worldwide in multiple languages.”

“Our mission is to enable anyone, anywhere to connect to the news that matters with just a simple phone call,” says Mr. Elan Blutinger, Chairman and CEO of AudioNow. “UN audio programs play a tremendous role in updating people on the ground and providing information critical to the UN’s mandates.

New York, NY (March 10, 2014) – AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, and the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) today announced that audio content from the United Nations including news and features as well as live coverage, is now accessible by phone in Brazil, South Africa, Switzerland, and Ukraine. Based on an agreement signed by both parties, the service began in the U.S. in 2013 and will continue to open in additional countries in the year ahead.

Listeners can access UN Audio content – including radio programmes, news bulletins and features stories, interviews, daily press briefings and live coverage of many UN General Assembly and Security Council meetings – by simply dialing in a local access phone number on any landline or mobile device. This service does not require a smartphone or apps and it uses voices minutes rather than data plans, making it the least expensive way to access such content. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices, and as feature phones remain in high use in many parts of the world, this kind of call-to-listen platform is emerging as one of the most affordable ways for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters and organizations.

“We are excited to join forces with AudioNow to make it easier for people to access UN programming,” says Mr. Stéphane Dujarric, Director of the News and Media Division at the United Nations. “This collaboration is an example of an innovative and cost effective way to take UN stories and issues directly to audiences worldwide in multiple languages.”

In Brazil, South Africa and Switzerland, listeners can now access daily UN Radio news in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish as well as audio from TV features and live briefings and meetings coverage in multiple languages. In Ukraine, listeners can now access daily UN Radio News in English and Russian. Recent UN Audio coverage includes developments in the world hot spots such as Syria, Ukraine and Venezuela as well as stories on important issues like AIDS, trafficking, press freedom and gender equality. The call-to-listen phone numbers incur no extra charge and are the equivalent of making a standard mobile call.

“Our mission is to enable anyone, anywhere to connect to the news that matters with just a simple phone call,” says Mr. Elan Blutinger, Chairman and CEO of AudioNow. “UN audio programs play a tremendous role in updating people on the ground and providing information critical to the UN’s mandates. We’re honored to expand the UN’s reach to mobile phones now in South America, Africa, and Europe, after our recent launch in the United States. In Ukraine in particular, we see this as an urgent time for news and access.”

Leading Broadcasters and Breaking News from Ukraine Now Available by Mobile Phone in U.S. and England

Espreso.tv, UkrStream.tv, and Radio Svoboda offer real-time reporting from Kyiv

February 28, 2014 – Following weeks of upheaval in Ukraine, where violence and the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych dominated international headlines and where independent Ukrainian media sources remain limited, three leading broadcasters announced today a partnership with AudioNow – the world’s leading call-to-listen provider – to expand the reach of their programs to Ukrainian diaspora.

Espreso.tv and UkrStream.tv, based in Kyiv, and Radio Svoboda, the Ukrainian-language broadcast of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, are now offering 24/7 reporting and news updates to mobile phones across the U.S. and U.K.

Radio Svoboda can now be heard from any mobile phone in the U.S. by calling 415.638.5770, and in the UK by calling 033.00.10.26.60.  There is no cost for the call beyond mobile minutes.  As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices, call-to-listen technology is emerging as one of the most affordable ways for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters and organizations.

Established in 1954, Radio Svoboda/RFE is Ukraine’s most popular and trusted international broadcaster.   With a staff of 26 in Kyiv, dozens of stringers on the ground, and over 12 hours of daily programming, Editor in Chief Nedad Pejic remarked on the importance of providing news and information during the unrest.

“Our data says that United States is the second country, after Ukraine, to visit the site of RFE/RL in Ukrainian.  We registered 228,000 visits from United States in three days — from February 18th – February 21st. The diaspora audience needs to know that is happening and this is why this AudioNow platform is important to us,” said Pejic.

UkrStream.tv was created as an independent news source as the unrest began, by professional journalists in Ukraine who see a need for more unbiased reporting.  In the five weeks since its launch, the channel is reporting 20 million views from around the world.

“Our cameras operate 24 hours per day, and capture everything that happens on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kyiv.   And you can listen to what happens on the stage on Maidan – the center of the Ukrainian civil protest,” said Timur Vasiljev, Co-founder of UkrStream.tv.  “It is very important to us for reach the diaspora and give the possibility to be in contact with the course of protests in every possible way.”

UkrStream.tv can be now heard by mobile phone in the U.S. on 712.432.7880, and in the UK on  033.00.10.27.33.

Espreso.tv, founded in 2013, is a privately owned TV channel from Ukraine. The station’s goal is to act as a megaphone for the most current news in Ukraine, both inside the country and for Ukrainians living abroad.

Espreso.tv aims to unite those who care about democratization of Ukraine.  Espreso.tv is dedicated to accurate and objective reporting of political, social, and cultural life, to discussions of nationally important issues and events, conducted by well known personalities,” says staffer Anna Patentna from Kyiv.

Espreso.tv can be heard by mobile phone in the U.S. on 712.432.9775, and in the UK on 033.00.10.41.05

“As part of our mission to provide the hard-to-reach with universal access to important information, AudioNow is committed to connecting broadcasters in times of conflict to diaspora audiences eager for real-time news,” says George Cernat, Chief Marketing Officer of AudioNow. “We look to serve wherever there is a global crisis and bridge the digital divide.”
