KRDO Newsradio available as an app

KRDO Newsradio 105.5 FM and 1240 AM launched a new state-of-the-art iPhone application in April.  “As we’ve promoted it, on both radio and KRDO NewsChannel 13 the usage has skyrocketed,” said program director Mike Lewis.  In June, there were 249 launches.  By August, the number went to 10,115.

The app allows people to listen to KRDO Newsradio on their iPhone wherever  they are.  “It sounds great on the iPhone,” Lewis went on to say.  Listeners go to the radio page of KRDO.COM and download it for free.  KRDO is also looking to acquire an application to run on the Blackberry and Droid in the near future.  “We want to make it easy to listen to the station in any form the listener desires,” continued Lewis.

The app has an alarm clock and is linked to KRDO.COM.
