The latest station to release an iPHONE/iPOD TOUCH application is ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-A/BOSTON. The station's new free "WEEI LIVE" app was developed with jacAPPS and allows users to access streaming and on demand audio, live local sports scores, the "This Just In" breaking news blog, and more, including video.
"If you love BOSTON sports, this application will provide optimal utility in terms of staying real-time aware of all news and opinions regarding your favorite teams," said WEEI.COM VP/GM TIM MURPHY. "The ability to listen to live WEEI audio, while scrolling through news, scores and stories is an amazing breakthrough for iPHONE users. The functionality of the application will give fans a full 360-degree BOSTON sports experience right in the palm of their hands. This app is the hyper-local mashup of everything the sports fan of our local teams expects."
"This is just the latest move that speaks to our mission -- give the fans of BOSTON's sports teams what they want, how they want it, wherever they are," said ENTERCOM NEW ENGLAND VP/AM Programming JASON WOLFE. "We pride ourselves on being ahead of the curve in terms of expanding the quality and quantity of our content, and just as importantly, expanding our distribution platforms. The iPHONE app is another big step forward in terms of broadening the reach of the WEEI SPORTS RADIO NETWORK for our consumers and our business partners."
