Slacker Radio Adds ABC News to Personal Radio Service

Slacker, Inc. is announcing today that they have  integrated ABC News with their Slacker Personal Radio experience, giving listeners the latest news from one of the country’s most popular news organizations.  Not only do you get personalized music, but personalized news as well.  There will be two options available – a dedicated news station and the ability to include news headlines at the top of the hour, regardless of station.

Effective immediately, segment from programs such as Good Morning America, Nightline, and others are available on or within the Android application.  Much like the personalization available through Slacker Radio, the ABC News also allows for customization.  Listeners can create a personalized news experience, deciding what stories they want to listen to by simply skipping the stuff they don’t care to hear.

Slacker Basic Radio listeners can try out the ABC News service for up to 14 days risk-free.  If you have a Slacker Radio Plus account, you’ll be happy to learn that you have unlimited access to the ABC News station and headline news updates.
