Local ESPN radio outlet now accessible via cellphone

ESPN radio's Washington DC affiliate WTEM "put their signal on cell phone"... via a company called AudioNow. "When WTEM VP/Operations Dennis Glasgow “wanted more ways to access our programming at a low cost on any device” he contacted the Reston, Virginia company and got a service that is free with no smart phones or data plans required.
  • Listeners can now hear WTEM on their cell phone.…

Mel Phillips visited their website…"Here’s their pitch: “You broadcast and we’ll connect your stream to the caller. You don’t have to manage the technology, carrier relationships or customer service. Simply let your listeners know your station is now available on AudioNow and post the link to our site on your home page.”

  • AudioNow charges “qualified broadcasters on a performance indexed price system based on your most recent Arbitron rating. Other factors include your format and whether your listeners will access your broadcasts through a local or toll free exchange."...
AudioNow only works “with recognized and well funded (established) radio stations that have ownership of their content and have qualified to be part of the Audionow network."... via Radio Daily News

  • This is the best idea I have seen in a long time. I can't afford an expensive phone and I can hear it live.
