KCRW now offers three applications for 99 cents each on the Apple App Store.
The KCRW Radio app provides live streaming of the on-air, music and news channels with real time playlists and an events calendar. The In Studio and Good Food apps give users the ability to “watch” radio — offering video highlights from performances on Morning Becomes Eclectic and interviews with chefs and Farmers’ Market updates from Good Food.
“The innovative iPhone and iPod touch are the perfect devices to let KCRW bend the boundaries of what radio is,” said Jennifer Fero, KCRW’s assistant general manager, in a press release. “Who says you can only listen to radio?”
“Radio can again be an intimate medium that you can bring with you everywhere,” added director of new media Anil Dewan.
KCRW, a National Public Radio station based in Santa Monica, offers a mix of programs — including independent music, news, talk and arts. It was one of the first radio stations to offer live online streaming. KCRW has members in every U.S. state and listeners in more than 180 countries.
