The Future of Radio News Is HearHere!!

IPhone

To my Token Female family:

These days, my phone is my best friend. How about you? Seems like I text and communicate every hour of the day. And I have an app for everything…GPS, Hotwire, LinkedIn, Twitter, Gmail, Camera, Tip Calculator. You name it. I have it.

Damned handy if you ask me! I’ve been stranded everywhere from Indiana to Wisconsin, and there’s nothing like the Google maps to act as a compass!

THERE’S A NEWS APP?

From brand-new studios in the shadow of Willis Tower, HearHere Radio is launching the H2 Radio app, giving listeners unprecedented control over what kinds of news they hear and when they hear it, and customized for wherever a listener happens to be.Not just any news app! IT’S THE ONLY NEWS/SPORTS/BUSINESS APP you will ever need!

Can I get a HearHere! Or….an H2?

“H2 Radio is everything on-the-go news enthusiasts love, and none of the stuff you hate. It’s news on your schedule: The latest traffic, weather and breaking news reports are waiting for you whenever and wherever you turn on the app,” said John MacLeod, founder and CEO of HearHere Radio, the early stage startup behind H2 Radio. “It’s ‘the top of the hour’ whenever you launch H2 Radio.”

Unlike traditional radio, H2 Radio will offer news content that is topic-based, not station or channel based, so you get to decide what you want to hear and when.

H2 Radio is your own Internet news radio station and puts your news at your fingertips. You get to:

Select what categories of news you want.
Search to find the stories that are relevant.
Skip stories you don’t like.
Pause or rewind — especially useful with traffic reports!
Hear news when it’s convenient for you – at home, work, in the car or at the gym. It goes with you everywhere.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

I’m very proud to announce that I am a Weekend Sports Reporter for this new venture in radio. The H2 Radio app will launch on the iPhone in December 2013. It’s my privilege to work with my friend and Head of News, Charlie Meyerson, in this venture.

“Over the last few decades, radio stations have gradually trimmed news or eliminated it altogether. Even those with full news departments live under oppressive time limits. H2 Radio gives news a chance to ‘breathe.’ This is radio news freed of the tyranny of the clock: Stories can run as long – or as short – as needed,” said Charlie Meyerson, Head of News at HearHere Radio.
