SLACKER RADIO has unveiled its new redesigned platform that includes the addition of several new content providers, including NERDIST INDUSTRIES, ROOSTER TEETH, and YouTube celebrities TYLER OAKLEY and COMIC BOOK GIRL 19. The redesign, aimed at enabling easier customization and sporting a new logo, launches TODAY along with a revamped app for iOS; an ANDROID update is forthcoming as well.
NERDIST's new "Best of NERDIST" channel will feature highlights from CHRIS HARDWICK's NERDIST PODCAST and other shows produced by the NERDIST PODCAST NETWORK. ROOSTER TEETH, the AUSTIN-based multimedia production company; OAKLEYl and COMIC BOOK GIRL 19 will be part of SLACKER's "I Am The DJ" program, offering streams of music augmented with original material.
CEO DUNCAN ORRELL-JONES said, “From the start, SLACKER has been about the power of great radio, blending the best of human-curated programming with trusted voices and the ability to personalize your experience. Radio has always been important to audiences, but its personality got lost to corporate consolidation and an inability to keep up with the technology that listeners demand. SLACKER is radio for the post social media & time-shifting entertainment era. Our next natural evolution is to broaden and dial up the authentic human touch by inviting more and more relevant, creative and celebrated voices to SLACKER. We are bringing the next wave of talent to audiences through a truly interactive streaming platform.”
