NextRadio is joining with the Public Radio Satellite System to introduce its new PRSS MetaPub Platform to integrate enhanced visual features and information from public radio programming into NextRadio. Thie integration will allow public radio stations that air national shows to automatically set up the feed directly into NextRadio. The result is a particular program or story enhanced with visual images along with other descriptors such as the title of the show, the topic at hand, the host, or other elements.
Paul Brenner, President of NextRadio, said, “We are so pleased to be bringing News/Talk/Music radio to life in the NextRadio app. News/Talk grew by 275% in tune-ins in the last year, making it one of the fastest-growing genres listened to through NextRadio. By offering this feature to consumers, it will allow the station to provide a richer listening, and now viewing, experience.”
