COLUMBUS, OHIO, June 6, 2013 –  WOSU Public Media is now mobile, with a free mobile app available for users of iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices. The mobile app features live audio streaming of 89.7 NPR News and Classical 101, podcasts of local and national programs that air on those FM radio stations, and feeds from WOSU Public Media blogs on wosu.org.

The mobile app has news headlines on demand from 89.7 NPR News, as well as podcasts of the local public affairs program “All Sides with Ann Fisher” and other national NPR shows including “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me!” and “This American Life.” With DVR-like controls, audio streams can be paused, rewound, and fast-forwarded. Listeners to Classical 101 can also hear their favorite composers of classical music with the app  anytime, anywhere as well as podcasts of “From the Top,” “Sunday Baroque” and “Performance Today.”

The WOSU Public Media mobile app allows users to share stories through social media and bookmark a program so they can go back and listen to it at their leisure. There is also MemberCard integration so members can find a listing of nearby businesses and attractions that offer MemberCard discounts, as well as a complete local directory of the more than 200 participating vendors in central Ohio.
