SLACKER RADIO joins the lineup of smartphone apps that FORD drivers can control with their voice through available SYNC APPLINK.
"Customers now have so many options for accessing music and information. FORD SYNC APPLINK allows us to not only keep pace with what they are listening to, but how they are listening to it," said FORD CONNECTED SERVICES Director DOUG VANDAGENS. "With its huge music library, SLACKER RADIO dramatically increases the content options for FORD drivers."
"SLACKER listeners can create their own custom stations by selecting their favorite artists and songs, or listen to any of more than 150 stations curated by expert DJs who love the music they play," said SLACKER RADIO SVP/Business Development STEVE COTTER. "When they're not in the mood for music, SLACKER listeners can tune in to a wide variety of personalized talk content including personalized comedy, ABC NEWS and ESPN RADIO stations."
Slacker Adds Lifestyle Stations
SLACKER has also unveiled a set of new "Lifestyle" stations, in conjunction with ABC NEWS RADIO, offering customizable personal interest stories from the network. The new stations will be available in early 2012.
"ABC is excited to offer Slacker fans a new listening option that can be customized and personalized," said ABC NEWS RADIO VP/GM STEVE JONES. "This unique radio offering will allow listeners to enjoy lifestyle content whenever and wherever they want."
