Personalized ESPN Sports Coverage Coming Via Slacker Radio

Customizable ESPN audio content is coming, say the people at Slacker, the world’s first “personal radio company.”

This week, Slacker announced that ESPN audio content will soon be available on Slacker Personal Radio, providing listeners with customizable content from the country’s largest sports radio network.

“Slacker listeners will have access to an interactive dedicated station covering all facets of sports entertainment, with the option to include ESPN SportsCenter headlines for hourly updates on any Slacker music station, and the ability to create custom sports stations with ESPN Radio programming,” the company says.

ESPN will deliver to Slacker Radio what sports fans want most: up-to-the-minute coverage of all major sporting events and top news stories on both a national and regional level.

The interactive ESPN Radio station, Slacker announced, will also offer access to content from multiple ESPN programs and platforms, including Mike & Mike in the Morning, SportsCenter, The Herd with Colin Cowherd and more.

“It has long been our mission to provide listeners with the ability to experience ESPN Audio content wherever they are and through whichever medium fits best into their busy lifestyle,” said Traug Keller, senior vice president, Production Business Divisions, ESPN, Inc. “This new relationship will add unique value to the Slacker listening experience by showcasing customizable ESPN sports news and award-winning ESPN Radio programming.”

Slacker Personal Radio, which is available through all leading smartphones and Slacker-enabled home entertainment devices, enables listeners to create their own Personal Radio stations based on any artist or mix of artists, or listen to and personalize over 130 expert-programmed genre stations.
