PORT AU PRINCE and WASHINGTON, D.C., December 10, 2014– Radio Caraibes and AudioNow® Digital, a leading provider of in-language mobile apps for radio broadcasters, announced today the launch of a new mobile application for Haiti’s largest broadcaster. The app is free to download and is now available anywhere globally on Apple and Android stores.
Radio Tele Caraibes has expanded its partnership with AudioNow Digital by providing unique mobile apps to reach more listeners around the world, on any smartphone.
In a first for AudioNow Digital, the mobile application designed for Radio Tele Caraibes will now include “Radio Reporter”, a feature which allows listeners anywhere to submit video, audio, photography, and text as they happen back to the news desk at the broadcaster. This feature will help Caraibes’ mission to strengthen engagement between its audience and the station, by giving listeners the power to serve as citizen journalists, attuned to news that matters the most to the Haitian community worldwide.
Additional features on the AudioNow designed apps include one-touch call-to-listen enabling listeners to call broadcasters via Wifi at no cost from anywhere in the world; user-selected streaming bandwidth to better manage subscriber data costs; direct messaging to stations; sharing through social media; and push notifications.
“This app is a milestone for RadioTele Caraibes, as it allows listeners around the world to access our content while they are away from home,” said Patrick Moussignac, General Manager of Radio Tele Caraibes. “Having the island’s most popular weekly talk-show available on-demand is something we’re happy to offer our listeners via our new app.”
“We are honored to be launching Radio Reporter with Radio Tele Caraibes,” said Rebecca Walker, Director of Strategic Partnerships at AudioNow® Digital. “The global Haitian community is very engaged with the station, and this platform allows another medium to communicate while on-the-go. It’s a novel idea that stations not only want to give news, but receive it from listeners as well.”
