LOS ANGELES, July 12, 2021 / — LiveXLive Media (Nasdaq: LIVX) (“LiveXLive”), a global platform for Livestream and on-demand audio, video, and podcast/vodcast content in music, comedy, and pop culture, and owner of PodcastOne, Slacker Radio, React Presents, and Custom Personalization Solutions, announced today that The Associated Press, the independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting, is now the primary News/Talk content source across LiveXLive’s platform.
LiveXLive owns the Slacker Radio platform, the radio streaming service that operates across its mobile app, web, and TV. Through the collaboration with The Associated Press, LiveXLive offers a user-curated “AP News” station, where listeners can skip, play/pause, and personalize their own unique news/talk experience.
The relationship between LiveXLive and AP signals a move toward the contemporary cornerstone of entertainment and information, as AP News now fulfills the role ABC News once occupied for LiveXLive.
AP also releases the “AP Headline News Update“, a 90-second news break, inserted into the music streams of users who have opted-in to news updates, happening once an hour and providing listeners with the most timely updates of the day. Headlines, National and World news, as well as updates on Politics, Technology, Entertainment, and Sports, will all be included.
“AP has proven itself to be the leading source of global news,” says Dermot McCormack, President of LiveXLive. “As LiveXLive continues to push the boundaries of entertainment, we are thrilled to work with AP and excited to provide our users with an all-encompassing and informative streaming experience.”
“We are pleased to provide AP’s fact-based, unbiased news coverage to LiveXLive listeners,” said Michael Fabiano, AP vice president and general manager for Americas media. “This collaboration allows us to be part of innovative digital initiatives that expand the reach of AP’s factual journalism.”
