C-SPAN Radio Expands Mobile Distribution on AudioNow!

Available to every mobile phone listener without downloads or the need to access data services.

(July 29, 2010, Washington, DC) –C-SPAN Radio today announces a partnership with AudioNowTM that allows listeners to access the station’s programming live by dialing (202) 626-8888 on any phone 24 x 7.

“As an organization that advocates for greater openness in American government, C-SPAN is committed to providing the information people need when they need it on any device, wherever they are,” says Kate Mills, General Manager of C-SPAN Radio. “In today’s mobile society, we need to move with our audience and this technology gives our listeners yet another way to access the political and policy process of government they rely on C-SPAN for.”

“Listening to radio should be as simple as pressing a single speed dial button for the more than 80% of the market that do not access data services on their phones,” says Elan Blutinger, a Managing Director of AudioNow. “C-SPAN’s rich content is a national institution and it will now be available to every mobile phone listener without downloads or the need to access data services.”

(Note: Calling charges and plan charges may apply – users should check with their telecom provider.)

C-SPAN Radio is available in the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area at 90.1 on the FM dial. Area residents can listen to C-SPAN Radio in their homes 24-hours a day, and commuters can listen to "Washington Journal" and "Washington Today" in the morning and afternoon drive-times respectively. Beyond Washington, C-SPAN Radio is also available on XM Satellite Radio channel 132 and can be heard via the C-SPAN Radio App for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
