National Public Radio (NPR) is, for many, the sine qua non of the well-informed. Now savvy travelers – globe-trotters to road warriors – can stay current with NPR’s new phone app, NPR One. It’s a treasure trove of real-time local and national news and analysis plus an array of NPR-produced podcasts. Available free on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Microsoft.
Sure, live streaming of public radio has been going on for some time – but this new on-demand app combines NPR’s flagship programming, Morning Edition and All Things Considered, with the latest updates of national and local newscasts. Further, from a choice of podcasts offered, the listener can curate a very personalized list, augmented by recommendations by NPR One.
Their tagline, “It’s public radio made personal” is right, and it is the app every traveler needs to stay in-the-know.
