Radio is about the next best thing to the Internet for breaking news. A dedicated news team can break into regular programming at any time for important updates. And besides that, you can depend on regular newscasts every half hour.
That’s what makes TuneIn Radio so handy for news junkies. It automatically lists all your local radio stations and allows you to explore stations from pretty much every country in the world.
You can go to the News section and check out recommended stations or drill down to other categories such as Investigative News and Political News.
Or you can explore by location. Find out what’s going on overseas from the radio stations located there.
The selection of music is also good. Despite the war in Syria, for example, there are still plenty of good tunes on the air. And I’m really digging the rhythms from the Central African Republic.
The basic version of TuneIn Radio is free. For $4.99 you get rid of annoying little banner ads and gain the ability to record and play back.
