Los martes entre 5:00 p.m. y 5:30 p.m. (UTC) aficionados al deporte pueden oír “Deportivamente” con Jaime Mora. 

La directora de Radio Zacatecas, María Teresa Velázquez Navarrete informó que “AudioNow, con su oficina en Washington D.C., es una empresa especializada en llegar a las audiencias étnicas en su propio idioma y en conectar a comunidades de la diáspora a sus emisiones favoritas.” AudioNow tiene como socios a líderes de la industria de radiodifusión en el mundo como la BBC, las Naciones Unidas, Radio Francia Internacional, la Voz de América, ESPN y Entravisión, entre otros. 

La gestión hecha por Radio Zacatecas nos permite utilizar la plataforma de AudioNow gratuitamente y fue hecha pensando prioritariamente en el gran número de migrantes que requieren informarse sobre lo que ocurre en su tierra. Natalie White, Especialista regional Latinoamericano de AudioNow, declara: “Estamos muy contentos de ampliar el alcance de Radio Zacatecas a los oyentes en los EE.UU., sobre todo para conectar a la comunidad inmigrante con la programación de alta calidad, la formación, la educación y la información cultural.”

Audio content from the United Nations is now available on mobile and phone platforms through AudioNow’s call-to-listen service

New York, NY (December 10, 2013) – AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, and the United NationsDepartment 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 eight languages. Based on an agreement signed by both parties, the service will begin in the United States and will expand globally within the next few months.

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 the United States, 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. Recent UN Audio coverage includes: continued humanitarian relief following Typhoon Haiyan; debates on the current crisis in the Central African Republic; and discussions on the interim agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. The call-to-listen phone numbers incur no extra charge and are the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. 

“Our mission is to help shrink the digital divide and reach the hard-to-reach” 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 particularly in the developing world. This fits with our core objective, which is to enable anyone, anywhere to connect to the news that matters with just a simple phone call.”

Following today’s launch of phone numbers in the U.S., AudioNow and the UN will expand this new listening service to Brazil, South Africa, Switzerland, Morocco, and Mexico, with additional countries to follow. 

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

UN Audio Channel (Arabic): 712.432.9912 
UN Audio Channel (Chinese): 712.432.9911

IMG College and AudioNow Announce Mobile Listening with West Virginia University

IMG College and AudioNow Announce Mobile Listening with West Virginia University 

Radio Call “Synched” to Television Broadcast via AudioMatch

WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 16, 2013) – In a first for Mountaineer fans, IMG College, the multimedia rights partner of West Virginia University, and AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, have announced a new way for listeners to connect to their favorite team. Through a simple mobile telephone call, fans can access live college football broadcasts on their phone and – for the first time through AudioMatch™ — synchronize the local radio call to the telecast.

This weekend, and for the rest of this season, WVU fans can dial 712.432.6998 and listen to live broadcasts on the Mountaineer Sports Network from IMG. The service officially launches Saturday, October 19th when the Texas Tech Red Raiders visit the West Virginia University Mountaineers at Milan Puskar Stadium. Air time for the pre-game show on the Mountaineer Sports Network from IMG will be 8:30 a.m. (ET) with kickoff at Noon ET with Tony Caridi, broadcaster for the Mountaineers since 1997.

In addition, and through a new proprietary application from AudioNow, called AudioMatch™, fans can match and synchronize the radio broadcast with the telecast to listen to their favorite radio voice while watching the action on TV. By using two telephone keypad buttons, fans can adjust the timing of the radio call to match what they see on TV. During the week, fans can call the number to listen to recorded Mountaineer football games, as well as live weekday coaches shows. 

WVU is the third IMG College property to launch with AudioNow this season, joining the University of Florida and the University of Nebraska. 

“Mountaineer fans and alumni can now hear game day broadcasts through a simple telephone call,” said Alexandra Moe, Director of Partnerships at AudioNow. “Our goal is to connect sports fans, wherever they are, to games they want to be a part of and with a new level of personalization.”

The call-to-listen phone number incurs no extra charge and is the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices and unlimited voice plans continue to proliferate, radio-by-phone is emerging as one of the most affordable ways in the United States for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters when they are away from the radio, television and Internet.

“IMG College is interested in bringing fans the audio broadcast of their favorite school teams through innovative technology complementing traditional terrestrial and emerging digital and streaming platforms,” said David Shumate, Director of Audio Operations for IMG College. “We’re thrilled to bring call-to-listen on AudioNow to Mountaineer fans this season.”

Since college fans are extremely loyal to their local broadcast, IMG College believes AudioNow has the potential for expansion beyond the three pilot schools, Shumate added. “Across the IMG Audio Network this college football season, we have 25 announcers who have been calling their school’s respective games for 25 years or more. That level of longevity results in extraordinary listener loyalty.”

For more information about AudioNow and its alliance with IMG College, please contact Alexandra Moe at alexandra.moe@audionow.com or 202-621-2284. Or Andrew Giangola, IMG College, 646-871-2402, andrew.giangola@img.com.

In addition, and through a new proprietary application from AudioNow, called AudioMatch™, fans can match and synchronize the radio broadcast with the telecast to listen to their favorite radio voice while watching the action on TV. By using two telephone keypad buttons, fans can adjust the timing of the radio call to match what they see on TV. During the week, fans can call the number to listen to recorded Mountaineer football games, as well as live weekday coaches shows. 

WVU is the third IMG College property to launch with AudioNow this season, joining the University of Florida and the University of Nebraska. 

“Mountaineer fans and alumni can now hear game day broadcasts through a simple telephone call,” said Alexandra Moe, Director of Partnerships at AudioNow. “Our goal is to connect sports fans, wherever they are, to games they want to be a part of and with a new level of personalization.”

The call-to-listen phone number incurs no extra charge and is the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices and unlimited voice plans continue to proliferate, radio-by-phone is emerging as one of the most affordable ways in the United States for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters when they are away from the radio, television and Internet.

“IMG College is interested in bringing fans the audio broadcast of their favorite school teams through innovative technology complementing traditional terrestrial and emerging digital and streaming platforms,” said David Shumate, Director of Audio Operations for IMG College. “We’re thrilled to bring call-to-listen on AudioNow to Mountaineer fans this season.”

Since college fans are extremely loyal to their local broadcast, IMG College believes AudioNow has the potential for expansion beyond the three pilot schools, Shumate added. “Across the IMG Audio Network this college football season, we have 25 announcers who have been calling their school’s respective games for 25 years or more. That level of longevity results in extraordinary listener loyalty.”

D.C. United and AudioNow Debut Mobile Listening with Spanish-language Broadcast

D.C. United and AudioNow Debut  Mobile Listening with Spanish-language Broadcast

 

For First Time, Call-to-Listen available in Spanish for Local fans

 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 13, 2013) – In a first for soccer fans, D.C. United and AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, have announced a new way for listeners to connect to live games in Spanish.  Through a simple mobile telephone call, fans can now access live D.C. United broadcasts on their phone and be connected to the local Spanish-language radio call.

 

This weekend, and for the rest of this season, United fans can dial (712) 432-7878 and listen to live broadcasts.  The service officially launches  Saturday, September 14, when D.C.United hosts the LA Galaxy at RFK Stadium.   Airtime for the broadcast begins with kick-off at 4:00 p.m. (ET). 

 

“Soccer is serious business in Washington, D.C.”  said Alexandra Moe, Director of Partnerships at AudioNow.  “But not all fans can make it to the game, and want to listen by phone, from wherever they are. Now, those in the DC region can hear the Spanish-language broadcast from any phone.”

 

The call-to-listen phone number incurs no extra charge and is the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices and unlimited voice plans continue to proliferate, radio-by-phone is emerging as one of the most affordable ways in the United States for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters when they are away from the radio, television and Internet.

 

“We continue to explore ways through which we can deliver live game coverage to fans in manners that are most convenient to them,” said Doug Hicks, D.C. United Chief Marketing Officer.  “AudioNow presents a quality product and the opportunity to build a promising partnership.”

 

For more information about AudioNow and its alliance with DC United, please contact Alexandra Moe at alexandra.moe@audionow.com or 202-621-2284.

IMG College/Florida Gators Football Games Now Available on Any Phone Powered by AudioNow

IMG College/Florida Gators Football Games Now Available on Any Phone Powered by AudioNow 
For First Time, Radio Call “Synched” to Television Broadcast

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 4, 2013) – In a first for college football fans across America, IMG College, the multimedia rights partner of University of Florida, and AudioNow, the world’s leading call-to-listen platform, have announced a new way for listeners to connect to their favorite team. Through a simple mobile telephone call, fans can now access live college football broadcasts on their phone and – for the first time through AudioMatch™ — synchronize the local radio call to the telecast.

This weekend, and for the rest of this season, Florida fans across the United States can dial (712) 432-7010 and listen to live broadcasts on the Gator IMG Sports Network. The service officially launches Saturday, September 7when the FLORIDA GATORS visit the MIAMI HURRICANES at Sun Life Stadium. Air time for the pre-game show on the Gator IMG Sports Network will be 10:00 a.m. (ET) with kick-off at 12:00 ET

In addition, and through a new proprietary application from AudioNow, called AudioMatch™, fans can match and synchronize the radio broadcast with the telecast to listen to their favorite radio voice while watching the action on TV. By using two telephone keypad buttons, fans can adjust the timing of the radio call to match what they see on TV.

IMG College, which is partners with two-thirds of the BCS universities and operates the country’s largest independent sports radio network serving 2,200 affiliates, will also bring AudioNow to the University of Arizona and Washington State University football broadcasts in the coming weeks, potentially followed by other schools. 

“So many college football fans live outside the market of their favorite team and miss their local radio broadcast,” said Alexandra Moe, Director of Partnerships at AudioNow. “Now fans and alumni can hear that broadcast no matter where they live. AudioNow extends the reach of radio all around the world and now we are helping IMG Collegeinnovate for the benefit of college sports fans throughout the United States.” 

The call-to-listen phone number incurs no extra charge and is the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices and unlimited voice plans continue to proliferate, radio-by-phone is emerging as one of the most affordable ways in the United States for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters when they are away from the radio, television and Internet.

IMG College is interested in bringing fans the audio broadcast of their favorite school teams through innovative technology complementing traditional terrestrial and emerging digital and streaming platforms,” said David Shumate, Director of Audio Operations for IMG College. “We’re thrilled to bring call-to-listen on AudioNow to fans this season.” 

Since college fans are extremely loyal to their local broadcast, IMG College believes AudioNow has the potential for expansion beyond the three pilot schools, Shumate added. “Across the IMG Audio Network this college football season, we have 25 announcers who have been calling their school’s respective games for 25 years or more. That level of longevity results in extraordinary listener loyalty.”

Through a simple mobile telephone call, fans can now access live college football broadcasts on their phone and – for the first time through AudioMatch™ — synchronize the local radio call to the telecast.

This weekend, and for the rest of this season, Florida fans across the United States can dial (712) 432-7010 and listen to live broadcasts on the Gator IMG Sports Network. The service officially launches Saturday, September 7when the FLORIDA GATORS visit the MIAMI HURRICANES at Sun Life Stadium. Air time for the pre-game show on the Gator IMG Sports Network will be 10:00 a.m. (ET) with kick-off at 12:00 ET

In addition, and through a new proprietary application from AudioNow, called AudioMatch™, fans can match and synchronize the radio broadcast with the telecast to listen to their favorite radio voice while watching the action on TV. By using two telephone keypad buttons, fans can adjust the timing of the radio call to match what they see on TV.

IMG College, which is partners with two-thirds of the BCS universities and operates the country’s largest independent sports radio network serving 2,200 affiliates, will also bring AudioNow to the University of Arizona and Washington State University football broadcasts in the coming weeks, potentially followed by other schools. 

“So many college football fans live outside the market of their favorite team and miss their local radio broadcast,” said Alexandra Moe, Director of Partnerships at AudioNow. “Now fans and alumni can hear that broadcast no matter where they live. AudioNow extends the reach of radio all around the world and now we are helping IMG Collegeinnovate for the benefit of college sports fans throughout the United States.” 

The call-to-listen phone number incurs no extra charge and is the equivalent of making a standard mobile call. As data costs continue to rise on mobile devices and unlimited voice plans continue to proliferate, radio-by-phone is emerging as one of the most affordable ways in the United States for listeners to connect to their favorite broadcasters when they are away from the radio, television and Internet.

IMG College is interested in bringing fans the audio broadcast of their favorite school teams through innovative technology complementing traditional terrestrial and emerging digital and streaming platforms,” said David Shumate, Director of Audio Operations for IMG College. “We’re thrilled to bring call-to-listen on AudioNow to fans this season.” 

Since college fans are extremely loyal to their local broadcast, IMG College believes AudioNow has the potential for expansion beyond the three pilot schools, Shumate added. “Across the IMG Audio Network this college football season, we have 25 announcers who have been calling their school’s respective games for 25 years or more. That level of longevity results in extraordinary listener loyalty.”

AudioNow Goes Interactive, Offering “Flash Polls” for Broadcasters To Engage Audiences

AudioNow Breaks Ground with New Audience Research Feature 

Washington, D.C., July 18, 2013: AudioNow, the leading radio-by-phone platform in the United States, connects hundreds of thousands of listeners each day to their favorite broadcast content by mobile phone. Now, in keeping with its spirit of innovation, the company announced a new audience research tool that allows broadcasters to gauge the opinions of their listeners at no cost.

The “Flash Poll” feature was beta-tested on three leading sports, Haitian, and Spanish-language broadcasters this month with enormous response rates. It is currently being used by a cable news network and an international global news broadcaster.

At a time when traditional audience research is often prohibitive by cost, the Flash Poll allows broadcasters to pose any question to their listeners, and receive real-time responses. Listeners respond on their keypad to questions that create content –on news events; social issues; cultural trends — or offer a window into demographics.

“Broadcasters, of course, want to know what their audiences are thinking,” said Alexandra Moe, Director of Strategic Partnerships at AudioNow. “Most stations don’t have thousands of dollars to invest in formal research. Here’s a way to ask a question and get an answer instantly, to get closer to your audience, or simply to understand who exactly they are.”

One-question polls can be uploaded directly by the broadcaster with the poll completed within 24-48 hours.

In a recent Flash Poll with one of the leading sports broadcasters in the U.S., for example, 60% of listeners reported using the AudioNow platform because they are away from a traditional radio or internet. A poll with Haitian broadcasters revealed that 70% of listeners own a “smartphone.”

The entire process can be done within the broadcaster’s AudioNow account. Click here to view the full flash poll results of one of the nation’s top sports broadcasters. 

To see if your station qualifies for the flash poll, please contact Rebecca Walker at rebecca.walker@audionow.comor 202.621.2223
